Jazz music is loved by music fans of all ages around the world. In this 90-minute children’s workshop, a team of experienced jazz musicians and tap dancers introduce participants to the fundamental elements of jazz – rhythm, call-and-response and improvisation. The workshops include rhythm clapping, movement games and simple dance steps. Participants also learn how familiar songs can be adapted using swing and Latin jazz styles, try out some basic tap footwork, and have the chance to join an impromptu finale jamming session with professional tap dancers and the band.
