SOLO AUTHENTIC JAZZ (SWING DANCE)
Teacher: Charlotte Liebenow

Trial class free of charge: Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

The Authentic Solo Jazz class is offered for beginners and experienced dancers to dive into the world of swing dance together.

In this class 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: Wednesdays, 8:15–9:30 p.m. (75 minutes)

Tuition fee:
1 class: 20,00 EUR (1 x 75 minutes)
5 Class Card: 85,00 EUR (valid 6 weeks, non-transferable)
Contract: 60,00 EUR (6 months) / 57,00 EUR (12 months)

Tuition fee for TapBeat students with a contract: 
1 Class: 15,00 EUR (1 x 75 Minuten)
Can be used to catch-up missed classes.

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

IRISH DANCE WORKSHOPS – SEAN NÓS STYLE
Concept and teacher: Magdalena Mak-Jeszka

New Dates: Sept 16–Oct 7, 2021
4 Days Compact course

Level: All levels.
Limited number of participants.
Early registration recommended.

Topic: Let yourself be invited on a trip to less known and more organic corners of the Irish dance realm. In a land, where it's not so important to learn complicated choreography to impress the audience but to lead the dialogue with music, improvise freely and just enjoy yourself. „Sean nós“ ("old style") Irish dance style is becoming more and more popular. Leg movements in „Sean nós“ style are small and less spacious, close to the floor, and the body is relaxed from the waist upwards. As it is an improvised form, in fact each dancer presents his own unique style. During the classes you will be provided with a selection of simple steps and sequences, on the basis of which you will be encouraged to build your own rhythmic stories. We will be also opening ourselves to improvisation.

What to wear: comfortable clothes and casual shoes with a hard sole (preferably leather sole) or tap dance shoes.

„How to register and conditions“ can be found on the registration form. Missed classes during the workshop cannot be recovered. No refunds will be made if the participant does not show up for the classes. 


Canceled due to the lockdown! New dates TBA!
