Solo Jazz for Lindy Hoppers

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. These are a mixed level, as each move will be broken down clearly for beginners, while more experienced dancers will be given extra tips to push their dancing up a level. 

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.

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 some of the patterns are directly transferable as footwork variations. You'll learn authentic jazz dance styling and technique that will further develop your confidence and body awareness, taking your overall dancing to new heights. You will learn either original choreography by Anna, or dip in to classic strolls from the 1930s era, learning a bit of history to inform your steps along the way. You will also learn some improvisation techniques which will mean you can solo jam on the dance floor at events without needing a dance partner.
