Jazz Dance: For the Cool in You with Maurice Watson
September 1, 2022 @ 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm
In this class we’ll discuss the European influences that were infused into the Africanistic roots of Jazz dance. Dancers will explore how Jazz dance went from the Savoy Ballroom to the concert stage. The movement vocabulary for this course will surround the “Coolness” of Jazz; smooth, fluid, lyrical, subtle, and blue. There will be a continued emphasis on the increase of strength, flexibility, balance, alignment, coordination, musicality, body awareness and artistic expression.
Level: Intermediate, some experience recommended.
