STAR - Kids' All That Jazz


“STAR – Kids’ All That Jazz” is a programme specially customized to meet the needs of students at the primary school level. Converge adopts specific teaching techniques catered to engaging today’s kids to help them build interest in Jazz and Dance in general, all while picking up important skills and values associated with the 21st Century Competencies.

The Converge STAR series strives to Shape students, harness their Talents, develop Appreciation, all while keeping Relevance in mind.

SHAPE – At their highly impressionable age, we introduce values-driven lessons that will equip students with social and emotional skills that are in line with the 21st Century Competencies, allowing them to learn about and through dance all at the same time.

TALENT – We want to develop their dance potential by equipping them with the correct techniques and a solid foundation. They will pick up basics of the genre, choreographed sequences, as well as stage performance skills.

APPRECIATION – To develop passion for the genre and dance in general, we believe that it is important to guide students in understanding the history of the specific dance genre. With understanding and awareness that goes beyond just its physical form, students enjoy a more holistic appreciation for the art form.

RELEVANCE – Our faculty adopts age-appropriate teaching techniques, music and language to help our Primary School students better understand the materials covered. Our lesson plans are also customizable according to the school’s needs (e.g. inclusion of specific themes, duration changes, etc.), in order to better engage the students.

In this specially crafted programme, students will have a taste of a variety of fusion Jazz genres, including Broadway Jazz, Latin Jazz, Street Jazz and Lyrical Jazz. Students will spend 2 sessions with each fusion genre, learning about its history, the techniques adopted from each genre, and its relevancy in today’s dance scene.
