COMPACT COURSE SOLO AUTHENTIC JAZZ (SWING DANCE)
Teacher: Charlotte Liebenow
May 30–June 27, 2022

Download (PDF): Registration Form BOOKED UP!

The Authentic Solo Jazz compact course is offered for beginners and experienced dancers to dive into the world of swing dance together. In this course we will learn the roots of the dance, gain an understanding of the music, and find out how and what makes us move to swing jazz music.

This swing dance style is danced without a partner, but is very helpful in improving footwork for other partner dances that are equally part of the swing world (e.g. Charleston, Balboa, Linfy Hop).

We will become more familiar with various vintage routines such as the "Shim Sham". So we can start to improvise to new steps and rhythms by ourselves.

Timetable: Monday, 7:15–8:15 p.m. (60 minutes)

Compact course tuition fee:
1 class:      20,00 EUR    (1 x 60 minutes)
4 classes:  60,00 EUR    (4 x 60 minutes)

Missed classes cannot be recovered. No refunds will be made if the participant does not show up for the classes. 

Material: You don't need to buy new shoes. Please bring an extra pair of comfortable shoes with a sole that is not too slippery, does not stain black and without heels.

Conditions of participation: Participation without written registration not possible. Participation "in person" or via Zoom possible. No refunds of course fees will be made if the participant cannot come to the booked course. Detailed conditions of participation and hygiene rules can be found on the registration form. Subject to alterations.
