Jennys Jazz part 2: solo improvisation and experimentation
September 23, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:00
Jenny loves to solo dance! Her 3 part workshop will help you improve your solo jazz and help you feel more comfortable to improvise during social dancing both individually, with others or with your dance partner!
These 3 workshops are not about learning a routine or the ‘perfect/correct’ way of solo jazz dancing, these workshops are about learning to have fun with solo jazz and getting yourself more comfortable with experimenting and solo social dancing to swing music!
Workshop part 1 solo moves: learn a handful of different basic solo jazz moves to help build you solo jazz vocabulary. No previous experience required
Workshop part 2 solo improvisation and experimentation: we will build on the basic moves and learn to dance freely and expressively, you will learn tips and tricks to experiment and play around with the moves which can be applied to solo or partner dancing Requirements: basic solo moves experience and/or workshop 1
Workshop part 3 social solo jazz: learn to dance solo jazz socially, no need to be scared it’s super fun and this class will show you! Social solo dancing is also perfect for these weird pandemic times. Requirements workshop 1&2 or basic solo jazz experience
