“Jitterbugs Swingapore® is committed to providing excellence in dance education, in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. Students are encouraged to achieve their own personal potential, while experiencing the joy of dance.”
At Jitterbugs Swingapore®, we believe in a holistic dance education. In order for a student to reach their personal potential, multiple dance genres should be studied. Classical ballet is the foundation of all dance genres. This is where proper posture, placement and control are developed. Modern jazz exposes the students to a wide variety of styles and increases performance quality. Tapping places a strong emphasis on rhythm and musicality. As a dancer develops, it becomes increasingly difficult to perform successfully in one genre alone.
