Level Description

Solo Jazz 1

Description
Solo Jazz 1 is a solo dance class for total beginners, where we will look into the basic Authentic Jazz and Charleston moves. You will learn moves such as Suzy Q, Shorty George, Boogie Back, Boogie Forward, Fall of the Log, Tacky Annie, Cow Tail, Bees Knees, Itches etc., and you will learn how to mix them together into short solo routines.

Level Guidance
You don't need any prior dance experience to join this class. But if you have danced swing or another dance before, then that's of course an advantage.

Solo Jazz 2

Description
Solo Jazz 2 is a continuation course for those who already know the basic solo jazz moves. You will be introduced to more advanced moves and variations, as well as transitions between them. During the course you will also learn some of the popular solo jazz routines, such as Tranky Doo, Big Apple, Jitterbug Stroll etc. (different routine each round).

Note: Solo Jazz 2 course is created only when there is enough students on the Solo Jazz 1 course. This means that in some rounds of classes the Solo Jazz 2 course might not be available.

Level Guidance
You need to complete the Solo Jazz 1 course to be able to join this class.
If you come from another school, you need to know the basic Solo Jazz moves, such as Suzy Q, Shorty George, Boogie Back, Boogie Forward, Fall of the Log etc. (or have at least 2 months of solo jazz experience) to be able to join this class.
