Solo dancing provides you with the space and opportunity to learn about your body and how YOU like to move, no partner? No problem! Solo dancing hugely improves your partner dancing by helping you develop your own sense of rhythm and flow, and helps you react to spontaneous changes while partner dancing. Along with funky and challenging steps, this class will cover the common "need to know" vocabulary of every solo jazz dancer, and offer you plenty of practice time and feedback to help you bring your dancing to the next level. The exact address and parking info will be emailed to you after you have registered/if you contact me here if you're not pre-registering.

Intermediate: Your confidence as a dancer, solo and partnered, has increased. You might have learned the Shim Sham or other line dances at this point, and have started using your slick moves in partnered dancing. You still feel awkward sometimes, but you're mostly comfortable with what you know and are looking for more. Advanced: You love solo dancing and do it shamelessly, even in public. You have been experimenting on your own both solo and partnered. You are familiar with most line dances like: the Shim Sham, the Tranky doo, Mama's stew, the Big Apple, etc. Everything at this stage is refinement and pushing your capabilities. You look to clips of other dancers classic and current to learn their movements while developing and improving your style. HOW DO I REGISTER?
