Jazzart Dance Company opened its’ facilities at the Artscape Theatre Centre and enrolled its’ great dance teachers and choreographers to offer a physical experience that can be shared across generations.

The Jazzart Dance Company has created a series of exciting evening dance classes – for the whole family, all shapes and sizes and fitness levels – to tune up the groove. The award-winning contemporary dance company is on a mission to help South Africans get fit as well as providing a safe space for people to express their inner most emotions – all through movement.

Dance may be a scary thought for self-doubting beginners, but Jazzart’s welcoming approach to a physical workout provides a safe space for exploration. “When we say we welcome everybody we mean just that” says Ananda Fuchs, Jazzart dance teacher, who together with Sifiso Kweyama, the artistic director has been teaching beginners and those with a bit of experience for some years. Fuchs believes dance to be an incredible discipline that can be learned at any age. “We take it easy (to start with), almost anyone can benefit from one or two classes a week” she adds.

The dance classes are not only about trimming down, it is about changed lives – enhancing health and athleticism while using a rewarding system that satisfies both one’s interior and exterior world.

The professional teachers utilize the fluidity of choreography to enable one to capitalise on beautiful movement, and this focused exercise can “invigorate the dancer’s energies and interrogate their inner connections,” interjects Kweyama.

Male and female school-going dancers, adults and anyone who wants to add the art form to their extracurricular activities are encouraged to join in, as well as those who have been shy about their body shape, fitness level, or co-ordination.

The benefits of Jazzart dance classes include building core strength, firm muscles without bulking up, improve balance and co-ordination, losing centimeters and kilos, stepping out of your comfort zone – learn something new, improved mental health and flexibility, increasing energy levels, meeting new people and expressing yourself like never before – own the moment.

Classes will run through the year so event if you can’t feet it to your schedule right now, you can still make a plan to join in the next few weeks. The pricing also allows you to come and experience with being obligated to submit yourself in advanced.
