Authentic Jazz. Swing on fire (Solo)
Solo Jazz is a general term that can refer to anything from the pre-Cake Walk dances to post war era material linked with be-bop as well as rhythm ‘n’ blues music. In modern terminology, it often refers to dancing without a partner rather than dancing with a partner. Solo Jazz can be danced free and improvised or in routines such as Shim Sham Shimmy, Big Apple or Tranky Doo.
We will learn general authentic jazz moves, make a little routine and of course burn the floor!:))
Jazz up your life (couples)
Not everyone knows that you can dance to Swing music… But you can!
The Lindy Hop is a rhythmical and groovy couple dance, originally created to big band music in the Harlem ballrooms around the time of the depression. The dance form is based on a traditional lead- and follow structure, but opens up for an endless amount of improvisations and individual interpretations.
Starting from this class you will never stay in the corner during the party!
