What is Modern jazz?
Lyrical Jazz is a dynamic amalgamation of ballet and contemporary dance. This Jazz style displays the art and discipline of ballet as well as the natural pace of a modern dance style.
This is an Adults dance course and involves the study of a precise syllabus that is particularly studied and designed for this style of dance.
All students will have to attend an end-of-year exam and receive a certificate recognized by the ECD.
Matt Mattox is a legend. Combining his ballet expertise with that of Jack Cole’s distinguished style has resulted in a style of Jazz that is visibly powerful. The style combines flamenco, modern and tap as well as influences from his own background in ballet. Reinforced by his philosophy that all dance is a form of expression and inspiration; it is a freestyle form of dance, which gives the artist the pleasure and freedom of expressing their individuality.
Mattox’s techniques are extremely powerful and have been integrated into Jazz dance techniques: especially the concepts of isolation and driving rhythm.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“ECD gave me so much: a dancer’s vocabulary, working knowledge of steps that actually come up in auditions and most of all a passion for self-expression through movements.”
