JAZZ TURNS WORKSHOP

Sundays 9-10am in February with Grace

Let’s delve deeper into turns! Jazz turns, to be exact. Expand your knowledge of jazz vernacular and build upon the foundations of turning, adding a wider range of turns to your toolkit. This workshop is perfect for the beginner or experienced beginner dancer who wants to take their clean singles to solid doubles, to refine their technique moving across the floor, to execute consistently, and to go beyond being in their head while turning- instead, being able to layer in jazz style, texture and joy!
