Harlem Roots

Well hello there, this is an invitational level, for teachers who want to dig deeper into the Harlem Roots and how it can best be taught ...  Think about original Harlem roots language, rhythm and root system.  Following the Hërrang Harlem roots idea, "the classes will avoid contemporary influences and interpretations and will instead direct the light and focus towards essential characteristics significant to classical vernacular Harlem swing dancing".

Solo Baby!

This year is gonna be swell! You will get not one, but two authentic solo jazz teachers. Saturday it's the performance day: in 4 hours you will learn a routine with nobody less than Gabriella Rosatti, a well known dancer both in solo and lindy hop, famous for her raw, authentic style! Saturdaynight, it's show time. You will get the possibility to perform the routine you learned on our Saturday party.
On Sunday you'll have 4 hours with Jenny Duerrell, also a Harlem Hot Shot member, known for her playfulness, fine tuned rhythms, and elegant style. I think that Sunday will fly away!
For this level, it would be good to have at least danced lindy hop for 1,5 year (or took +10 solo jazz classes). In doubt, write us.

A ticket for this track includes 8h of classes and two evening parties with band. This class won't be at the same place as the lindy classes, just so you know!
