Update: New Classes
Good news! We are starting classes again within the limits of the current corona measures. Our aim is to organise a few short blocks of classes until the end of the year, given that the corona measures allow it, of course. Updates on upcoming blocks will be posted on our facebook page and on the website. For any further questions, please contact us.
A new block of solo jazz classes will start on Monday night 26 oct. Solo jazz is one of the many disciplines in Swing dance. Different routines from the early days of the Swing era are danced, but using “jazz steps”, new routines are created as well. We will have beginner and advanced classes. Do subscribe quickly to secure your spot.
Our classes take place in wijkcentrum de Pomhorst, Pomona 562 in Wageningen.
19:30-20:45 Beginners solo jazz
21:00-22:15 Advanced solo jazz
This block will last 4 weeks (if government regulations will keep to allow us, see cancellation policy). Classes will take place on oct 26, nov 2, nov 9, nov 16.
Price for the block of 4 classes is 25 euro. Payment will be cash at the 1st class.
Level 1 beginner solojazz
You tried some solo jazz steps before. You might know (part of) the shimsham or another routine.
You have no experience with solo jazz but are motivated to learn.
Level 2 advanced solojazz
You can dance the Shimsham without peeking at your neighbours feet. You probably know (part of) Tranky doo or even more routines. You are ready to learn more at a relatively fast pace.
You have extensive experience in another dance discipline AND pick up new steps quickly.
We have the honour of having a great teacher come all the way from Amsterdam to teach us solo jazz! Janna Marcella has many years of experience in Swing dance, including solo jazz, and she is ready to spread the love to you.
