SOLO AUTHENTIC JAZZ: SWING DANCE WITH CHARLOTTE LIEBENOW
September 5–December 19, 2022. Spots available.

Download (PDF): Registration Form 

Content: The Authentic Solo Jazz 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, 7:00–8:00 p.m. (60 minutes)

Tuition fee:
4 months: 225,00 EUR (15 classes, each 60 minutes
