Solo Jazz

4-week course

All levels can sign up to these classes as they will start off at an introductory level and progress at your pace across the four weeks.

Solo Jazz is a fun way to express yourself to swing music, through improvisation or choreographed routines. Within the world of swing dance, Solo Jazz focuses on the roots of jazz dance including elements of tap and Charleston. It is a perfect complement to your partnered Lindy Hop, as it's much easier to master footwork variations on your own before trying with a partner, and also gives you greater options for Breakaway moves - these are highly creative, fun and musical moments in your social dancing where you break hold from your partner to solo freestyle before jumping back in to hold again. These courses will be themed each month from smooth jazz to upbeat Charleston, looking at either Anna's original choreography or classic strolls, styling and performance technique, or improvisation and jam circles.

There are also a number of Strolls that are popular at swing dance events where the dance floor will take a break from partnered dancing to all dance the same routine together. Knowing these strolls will be a great asset when attending any social dance as a way to connect with the local community. Many of these steps and strolls were developed and danced in the dance halls of the 1920s/30s and handed down to us, so form an important part of swing dance heritage.  

The classes are 55mins long each week, due to the nature of the high energy in class and there will be our Level 3 Lindy Hop class straight after at 8pm.
