This class will focus on solo jazz for lindy hoppers at an intermediate to advanced level. Each week will explore a short combination taken from canonical material or original choreography. Students will learn new steps, rhythms, and improve their capacity to learn and retain choreography.
In depth understanding of jazz vocabulary will not be required, but the understanding of swing rhythm and swing aesthetic will be essential. This class will be taught by Gaby Cook, with the occasional guest star.. Nathan Bugh.
