Belly Dance

Belly Dancing ( 13 yrs and above)

Many experts say belly dancing is the oldest form of dance, having roots in all ancient cultures from the orient to India to the mid-East. Throughout history,
this ritualized expression has usually been performed for other women, generally during or parties preparing a young woman for marriage.
Belly dancing is natural to a woman’s bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often
focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form. Belly Dancing is
generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth.

Aerobics

Aerobics (9 to 12yrs, 13yrs above)

The word aerobic means “with oxygen.” Aerobics is a system of exercises designed to promote the supply and use of oxygen in
the body. Aerobic exercises include biking, walking, running, dancing, rowing, and skating. Aerobic exercises increase cardio respiratory
fitness, which is the heart’s ability to pump blood and deliver oxygen throughout the body. Benefits of cardio respiratory fitness include
increased endurance and energy, decreased heart disease, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and an increased ability to manage stress. It also helps to control weight.
From humble beginnings in the late 1960s, aerobic dance has become a major symbol of the fitness craze that exploded into American culture in the 1980s.
Aerobic dance has blossomed into a sport for all to have fun while losing weight and keeping in shape. More than 24 million people participate in aerobics. Essentially
an hour’s workout set to music, a typical aerobics program begins with 5-10 minutes of warm-ups and stretching, peaks with 20-30 minutes of target heart range
dance, can include 20 minutes of a muscle stretching floor program known as body sculpting, and ends with 5-10 minutes of cool-down and more stretching.

The Instructor


AJ is a Professionally Trained aerobics Instructor. He learned Aerobics from a well known Aerobics Expert in India, Mrs. Prabha Khanna who has over 20 yrs
of experience in this field was able to impart the same knowledge to students in the field of Aerobics.

Western Dance

Western Dancing(Hip-hop, Jazz, Waacking) (4 to 8yrs, 9 to 12yrs, 13yrs above)

Learning to dance is a great way to get in shape, build confidence and increase self-esteem. For years doctors have recommended
dancing as a great way to stay in shape and keep a sharp mind. Becoming a good dancer always includes three key elements; expert
instruction, practice and frequent use of what you are learning. If your training program does not include an appropriate amount of all
three you will be wasting much of your time and money. Take a few minutes each day to practice what you have been working on in class. Spend 15 minutes each
day to focus your mind and body on executing the figures to reinforce the learning process and give you the confidence to then apply those skills in a social dance
setting.
Last, it’s vital that you attend a western dance at least once each week and put into use the things you have learned. Remember! “You use it or lose it!”

Indian Classical Dance

Indian Classical Dance. (Bharatanatyam, Mohiniyatam, Kuchipudi)
(4to 8yrs, 9 to 12yrs, 13yrs n above)

A relatively new umbrella term for various codified art forms rooted in “Natya”, the sacred Hindu musical theatre styles, whose theory can be traced back to the
Natya Shastra of Bharata Muni. Indian classical dance has a distinct character that reflects the great cultural and traditional endeavor. The forms of Indian dance
have transcended beyond the fences and socio-cultural hindrances. The Indian Classical Dance is often regarded as the form of worship and meditation, but it also
has the caliber of creating a new and disciplined lifestyle.

The Hip-Hop dance is composed of the old school style which is Rocking, Bboying, Tutting, Locking and Popping and all other Hip-Hop moves like Running Man,
Cabbage Patch, Lean Back etc. Now, the new generation came up with something fresh as well named, The Dougie Dance, Jerking, Rejects, Get Lite, and Krumping. To
learn all of these, the students should learn each one style at a time and their foundational moves.
Bboying has four foundational moves which are called the Toprock, Go Downs, Footworks, Freezes and Power Moves. In Toprock there are lots of variations
called Cross Steps, Indian Steps, Kick Steps, Salsas etc. It also has Burns and Disses. Go Downs is a tour transition from Toprock going to Footwork. So basically, before

4steps, 5, 6,7,8,9,10,11,12 steps. Also those Babylove, Russian Steps, Kick Outs, 8ball, CCS, etc as well. So, usually after Footworks, either you will start Power Moves or
a Freeze. Freezes are composed of different variations and you use Freezes to hit the beat. There are Handstand Freeze, Baby Freeze, Headstand Freeze, Chair Freeze
etc. Power Moves consists of Dynamic and Crowd Pleaser moves like The Windmill, Head spin, Airfares etc.
Locking is more of a funny approach and a groovy type of dance. Here we learn Skitter Rabbit, High Fives, Don Campbell Lock, Jazz Splits, Kick Ball Change etc.
In Popping we learn Chest Pops, Fresnos, Bogaloos, Waves, Glides etc.

Social Dance

Social Dancing ( Ballroom Dancing) (Salsa, Cha-cha-cha, Merengue) 13yrs above

A great opportunity for all who love ballroom dancing to share that fun with your community. There is no space for wall flowers
when a lively Merengue or Salsa is reverberating on the dance floor. Ballroom dancing is filled with exercise and surprises. It involves
athleticism and grace. You will increase your skills and learn how to be graceful on the dance floor.
It teaches:
• Coordinated movement • Good dress and manners • Understanding of music’s rhythm and tempo
• Teamwork • Discipline through practice and routines • A skill and ability that will be very useful throughout life
Salsa- A hot Latin dance similar to Mambo, which, when danced correctly, displays a lot of shaking, shimmying, and hip action.
Jive-The European version of the East Coast Swing, this dance uses six and eight count patterns. However, it is danced quite bouncy with very
sharp foot kicks and “flicks,” to faster tempo swing music and is meant for competitive style dancing.
Jive- The European version of the East Coast Swing, this dance uses six and eight count patterns. However, it is danced quite bouncy with very sharp
foot kicks and “flicks,” to faster tempo swing music and is meant for competitive style dancing.
Cha Cha Cha- An exciting, syncopated Latin dance which originated in the 1950’s as a slowed-down Mambo. The Cha Cha Cha gets its name and character
from its distinct repetitive foot rhythm, 1-2-3 step-step which is similar to Swing.
Mambo - A fast Latin dance, similar to Salsa, which comes from Cuba. Mambo was brought to America in the 1940’s and 50’s and eventually adapted as
an American style ballroom dance. Most of the movements emphasize the second beat in the measure, suggestive of the Clave rhythm which
is fundamental to Mambo music.
Merengue- An energetic Latin-style march which originated in the Dominican Republic, which emphasizes a straight-ahead 8-count rhythm taken with
Cuban Motion. Merengue is now also a subset of the modern club-style Salsa dances.
Night Club Two Step- An easy-going social dance, similar in movement to the Bossa Nova, first introduced in the 80’s by Buddy Schwimmer and popular amongst
the West Coast Swing crowd. Nightclub 2-Step is normally danced to medium-tempo pop songs and ballads, using combinations of Slow-Quick-
Quick and Quick-Quick-Slow rhythms.

Profit from social dancing includes not only physical, mental, and social benefits, but also include the joys of participating in a regular
program of ballroom dancing. Make new friends, and a fresh start in life.

Partner or without partner ?
Ballroom dance includes any dance performed with a partner. However, it is not necessary to have a regular partner when you first start dancing. Most group classes
accept singles and you should not hesitate to commence without a partner. However, if you already have a partner, it will be best that you learn together. You will quickly
find that learning to dance together adds an entirely new and beneficial dimension to your relationship.
How can I find a dance partner?
Jazz Rockers does not have a partner exchange or locator service. It is suggested you make your search efforts known to your dancing friends and to officers and
members. You could also try a general web search under “ballroom dance partner search” – there are a number of links that come up that might be helpful.
