UK Jazzdance

UK Jazzdance is an underground club dance unique to Britain grown out of the boogie and jazz funk dances of the early to mid-seventies clubs in London and around the UK of the time. From fast paced rapid footwork to extensive fluid lines UK Jazzdance tests the boundaries of different kinds of jazz music from hard bop, latin even broken beats. The workshop develops through the basic steps of fusion style UK Jazzdance based around the dance group IDJ and bebop style based around the dance group Brothers in Jazz. Once the basic steps have been built, we will work into improvisation methods around the styles and into personal movement.


Mixed styles

Mixed dance styles classes incorporate hip hop, streetdance styles, contemporary dance or personal movement, exploring the theory and fundamentals of fusion as a form. Music is used as a tool for exploration to enhance musicality, physical choices, character, set choreography and improvisational concepts.
