“Doin’ the Jive” Solo Jazz Series

Join us for a 4-week virtual lesson series where we will be learning the whimsical solo jazz routine: Doin the Jive. Choreographed by Kelly Porter, Joshua Welter, and Mike Faltesek, this routine is like a hokey-pokey for solo jazz (you do what the song tells you!), which makes it great for learning and remembering some essential jazz steps. The difficulty level is moderate but it will be taught in a beginner-friendly way with each step broken down.

Want to learn more before signing up? Join the kick-off/informational session on Zoom on Thursday, 13 August @19:30 where instructor Sarah Boyd will tell you what to expect and you can meet others in the class. This session is free, no registration is required. Zoom meeting details will be posted on the SDA group on the day.

Here’s how it works:

*When you register, you will be added to a class Whatsapp group where the video links will be posted every Thursday night.
*On the group, you will also get access to a “Dance Buddy” sign-up where you can form groups with other students in class before the first video drops for doing the videos together.
*For maximum flexibility, you will have access to the videos for up to one month after the course concludes.
*We will have two Zoom meetup sessions to catch up, ask and answer questions, and practice the routine. These are optional but you should definitely come!

Video content: Each video will include a warmup drill, choreography breakdown, and some dance-along practice runs of the routine.

Payment: This series will be the equivalent of a standard 4-week BB course, so the recommended payment is R320. However, especially in such uncertain times as these, we never want money to be the barrier to you dancing. So if normal fees are out of the question for you right now, simply pay what you can when you register for the class. Please use as a reference: [your name]_Jive Series
