Check out the class schedule for our November-December round:
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.
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.
Description Level Guidance
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).
You need to complete 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.
Music from class
We have collected some of our favorite swing songs, which are good for practicing new moves, and put them together in a Spotify and Youtube playlists. The songs are ordered from slow to fast tempo.
Come and practice moves from your class during Open Practice. You might want to bring a partner to dance with, but otherwise the dancefloor is open, and the music is playing, so come and dance!
If you sign up for two or more courses in the same round you will receive a 10% discount on all your courses!
