Solojazz för Nybörjare med Angelica

Solojazz, eller “Authentic jazz” som den kallas internationellt, är en systerdans till Lindy hop. Den kan dansas som en del i din partnerdans, eller fristående, bara för att det är roligt. För det är just vad denna dans är: en glädjefull dans som har mycket utrymme för egna influenser och individualitet.
Denna kurs vänder sig till dig som vill bekanta dig med autentisk jazz, eller till dig som har provat på det men vill gå igenom tekniken bakom de där stegen du gjort på Lindy hop-lektionerna.

Vi kommer att skapa oss ett “vokabulär” av jazzsteg som vi också sätter ihop, för att också öva på att lära oss koreografier (vilket i sig är en färdighet och behöver tränas på).

Så välkommen till alla som vill gräva djupare i Swingdansernas värld, få inspiration till din Lindy hop eller helt enkelt vill dansa en rolig dans!

4 tisdagar på Underverket, kl 19:30 – 21. Anmälan under http://www.catscorner.se

Eva König & Kyle MacDonald

Teacher’s presentation
Eva was introduced to balboa in 2005 in Malmö, and soon after this dance had stolen her heart. She’s been around Europe at many dance camps and also taken privates from the best.
She started teaching 2008 at her home club WCJ, to share her love for balboa, and has since been teaching around the world.
The magic in the intimate dialogue between lead and follow in close position balboa is something that she wants everyone to experience.

Born dancing in the Swing revival in Canada, Kyle has been swinging since the late 90s and helping spread the love of these dances all over the world. Passionate about the pulse and connection that allows balboa to set itself apart from the rest of the swing dances, he is excited to continue to bring new inspiration and excitement to balboa dancing in Skåne since moving to Gothenburg in 2016!

What is balboa?

“Floating on the dance floor to amazing jazz in a perfect hug with your partner and effortless communication (even at faster or crazy tempos) and expression of the rhythms, riffs, and melodies of the music” – Kyle and Eva.
