Express Your Swing
Time & Location
These sessions are aimed at dancers who are experienced in social dancing and wish to add more variety, musicality and creativity to their dancing. The classes are tailored to the room where possible, giving you opportunity for input and feedback, resulting in a more personalised learning experience. At times we’ll be using videos and additional learning materials to give inspiration from the international scene as well as drawing on jazz dance history.

You’ll be introduced to some new ways to develop your dancing, to challenge your habits and develop a more sophisticated approach to interpreting the music. For example; exploring jazz rhythms in footwork variations, musical breaks and structures, personal expression to the music, reviewing and improving familiar moves to develop more confidence to bring them to the social dance floor, exploring unexpected endings/outcomes, as well as introducing you to new moves.
9pm - 9:30pm PRACTICE AND FURTHER DETAIL
This time is allocated to put the lesson content in to different contexts, or practice, problem-solve, and get one-to-one feedback. Videos on occasion will also shown to provide wider context.
