Description

Solo Jazz is swing dancing without a partner.
It includes black jazz dances from the years 1920 to 1940 like the Charleston, Tap, Black Bottom and more.
Elements from these dances can be freely and creatively combined, or they can be found in popular routines like the Shim Sham, the Big Apple or the Tranky Doo.
Dancing without a partner does not mean dancing alone though! Group dynamics, getting inspired from each other and interacting in jam circles are important elements of Solo Jazz.


This class is open to everyone with or without previous dance experience in Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz, or other dances.

Lusia is a very enthusiastic and passionate solo jazz-teacher/dancer! Really great class to learn the basics and cool combinations out of them! May be a bit too easy if you have some experience in solo-jazz already:)

it's a really nice course to get to know the charleston! I've learned a bunch of cool steps and moves, which I can include in any kind of swing dance I think :)

The course was great even for beginner dancers. Luisa brought a lot of energy into it and her excitement was really contagious. All in all a lot of fun!

If you are looking for a fun and relaxed atmosphere while also getting a bit of workout, this is the right course. No experience in other dances needed either. Would definitely take again <3

the cours adds perfect to the previous courses and you can learn some pretty cool advanced looking moves. I liked it a lot! I think that both Matej and Luisa did a great job, can recommend a lot :)

Ich mochte den Kurs sehr! Matej und Luisa sind super sympathisch und mir gefiel der Schwerpunkt auf Charleston und dass wir damit eine ganz neue Seite von Lindyhop kennengelernt haben. Nach dem Tanzkurs habe ich immer so gute Laune :)

Gut um erste Einblicke in Solo Charleston zu bekommen. Kurs auch geeignet bei keiner Tanzerfahrung.

Easy basic steps to learn, many more difficult steps can be integrated. Charleston is a like a workout when you really put energy into it. Try it, it's fun and the steps are very forgiving.
