Solo Jazz & Movement

Rhythm City Swing dance classes resume May 2022! Read our welcome message and health and safety class policy, then check the schedule and register below. 

Solo Jazz & Movement students enjoy a discounted admission of $5 to the regular DJ'ed weekly dance, Rhythm City Strut. These classes are for dancers with an understanding of at least the basics of Lindy hop, as well as experience social dancing Lindy hop.  We will focus on four main themes:
  1. Body conscious movement: not just knowing your left from your right; knowing what a pulse is and whether you’re doing it and how much. What’s the difference between a kick and a shuffle? How do I dance big or small? How can I be better at spins? And lots more, all in the area of improving your ability to use your body and your awareness of what it's doing.
  2. Musical awareness and connection: what does this song feel like? Is it light/heavy/energetic/gentle? How strong is the rhythm? What’s the structure? Can I hear the individual instruments? How does it influence or inspire my movement? 
  3. Basic Solo Jazz steps and patterns: Suzy Q, Camel Walk, Fall off a Log, Boogie Forward, Boogie Back, Charleston, Fish Tail, Shorty George, etc, etc. How to and variations.
  4. Choreographies: vintage commonly known choreos like the Shim Sham and Tranky Doo, as well as original combinations. Practice combining Solo Jazz steps and musical and rhythmic variations.
