Following the overwhelming response to its 2020 premiere, Giant Steps is making a triumphant return this summer.

In this 90-minute workshop designed for both children and their parents or care takers, a team of experienced jazz musicians and tap dancers will introduce the fundamental elements of jazz such as rhythm, call-and-response and improvisation.

Kids and their adult companions will get to explore swing and Latin jazz styles through harmonising, movement games and simple tap footwork, and have the chance to join an impromptu jamming session at the end of the workshop.

Cantonese and English sessions will be held separately.
