OTHER GREAT TNS CLASSES COMING THIS YEAR!

CORE SOLO JAZZ

Solo Jazz developed in the 20s with the Charleston crazy and combines elements of Charleston, tap and basic jazz and it’s absolutely essential for becoming a great Lindy Hopper, as almost all our footwork variations are inspired by solo movement.  Solo Jazz is also the perfect opportunity to work on quality of movement. Since you don’t have a partner at the end of your arm, dancing with your whole body become much more important.  During this three week series we’ll walk you through the essential ABCs of Jazz steps and build up your vocabulary, then we’ll challenge you to put them all together!
