Solo Jazz 1 with Christine Nguyen
It goes by many names — Vernacular Jazz, Authentic Jazz, Vintage Jazz (or as the legendary Al Minns preferred: Basic Jazz). Whatever you call it, it’s a blast! Feel comfortable in your body and build confidence in your solo movement. Along the way, we’ll cover essential jazz vocabulary that will make your partner dancing more creative, and learning routines easier!
October's Topic: Charleston! The Charleston craze defined the Roaring Twenties, and still remains one of the world's most recognizable dances. Genius in its simplicity, it's an infectious rhythm that works with nearly any kind of music (don't believe us? Check out CardioGroove!) We'll cover basic 20s and 30s Charleston along with some fun moves like Hitchhikers and Scarecrows.
