Kid Jazz Dance

Jazz Dance World Congress is pleased to offer a special section for 9-12 year olds only. This year three classes have been added for a total of 12 1-hour classes. The core of this program will be twelve 1-hour classes in jazz dance appropriate for children, emphasizing technique and combinations. The program will culminate in the JDWC Jazz Jamm.

Kids Jazz Dance is also an excellent opportunity for teachers to learn new teaching techniques and combinations. Teachers interested in observing Kids Jazz Dance MUST register for the Kids Jazz Dance program.

PLEASE NOTE: Kids Jazz Dance registration does not include other Congress classes and JDWC registration does not include Kids Jazz Dance.
