Solo Jazz Crash Course: This course is suitable for complete beginners and those who have been dancing for less than a year. You’ll learn the fundamentals for beginners on the Saturday sessions and explore more complex moves on the Sunday. Each class will progress gradually and will provide enough material for people who are complete beginners or in their first year of dancing.
Solo Jazz Explorers Level with Trisha Sewell: You’ve mastered the Shim Sham, and Tranky Do and you are keen to work on the quality of your movement, timing, technique and authenticity. You would like to learn how to use solo jazz for competitions and jam circles
