You must register as a couple to attend this workshop.

All levels are welcome to attend this class, as long as you are comfortable with your 8-count Lindy Hop swingout and a Lindy Circle. You should be ready to get personal feedback and work collaboratively with your partner in class. You must register for this workshop with a partner.

Solo Jazz Workshop series

£10 per person, various dates
Location: Academy Studios, Camden NW1 0AD

Join a 1-hour Solo Jazz workshop with Sharon Davis. Learn the authentic solo dance steps of the jazz & swing eras, including The Charleston and beyond. Master the most famous jazz steps from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. Across this workshop series, all the most important solo dance steps from the jazz and swing eras will be covered. Every workshop in this series is different: different steps, exercises and routines are taught each workshop. Drop in to any individual workshop, or take them all for a comprehensive education in authentic jazz dance.

You will learn the history of each jazz step, how to execute it with rhythm and style, and how it connects with other jazz steps in the historic repertoire. You will gain experience of both improvising these steps and also learning them in short routine sequences, with a focus on rhythm and style.

Level: These workshops are suitable for all levels and everyone is welcome. The first section of class will teach the basic jazz steps from scratch, then progress to more advanced variations, combinations and sequences. The class will get more challenging as the hour proceeds. Absolute beginners are very welcome – you may find the final exercises challenging, but this is a great way to learn intensively.

You do not need a partner for this class. This is a solo dancing class. Men, women, all welcome! Start anytime.
