Solo jazz, also called Vernacular Jazz or Authentic Jazz is often referred to as dancing without a partner, as opposed to dancing with a partner (as traditionally done in i.e. lindy hop, shag and blues). The dance itself has had many influences, mainly from dances invented and danced from the 1920’s – 1950’s: from cakewalks to Charleston, Lindy Hop, Blues and beyond.
Classes will focus on increasing your body awareness, improving quality of movement while appreciating musicality and rhythm. Working on your solo movements goes a great way towards improving your partnered dancing.
