The first video in the Instructional Dance Videos section is here!
For the first one I've decided to share with you a short little sequence that I usually use for my warm up. It is super useful to teach it as an introduction to Solo Jazz Dance (also Authentic Jazz Dance or Vernacular Jazz Dance). The dance has its roots in African dance and was developed in various cities across America. It was a response to the new jazz music. Authentic Jaz Dance can refer to anything from Cake Walk dances to be-bop and rhythm 'n' blues music.
I also love to use it as a "bring back my mojo" example - I use this combo to show and remind everyone why did they show up in the dance class - because they love to dance. If you want to try that, learn it and dance it to all the different music styles and tempos - I usually do it to jazz, rhythm and blues, latin and even reggae. And observe how the combo stays the same but your movement changes.
I hope you will enjoy it and thank you for joining me!
