Solo Jazz 1 with Christine Nguyen
is a live interactive online class that focuses on Solo Jazz movement
Pre-requisites: None, but if you are completely new to dancing, we recommend taking Solo Fundamentals at least twice, or until you are comfortable with the material. If the series has already started, we recommend taking Solo Fundamentals until the next month starts.
Solo Jazz and Charleston are integral to Lindy Hop. Build your solo dance vocabulary and hone your technique, all while developing your individual musicality and confidence in your movement. Plus, you’ll be better prepared to get the most out of our weekly livestream!
Each month we will revisit solo dance basics, and then new steps, variations, and classic line dances, depending on the month’s topic. A complete Solo Jazz education consists of 6 topics lasting 1 month each.
Note: This is a 6-month series. Start any month. If you miss a month, not to fear — that topic will come back around in 5 months!
