How to Dance Solo to Jazz

The pandemic has kept us off the dance floor, and it’s about time that we dust off those jazz pants and get moving a bit – safely, of course. May is Frankie Month, in celebration of Frankie Manning’s birthday, so we’ll be kicking off with some Frankie-inspired solo jazz moves in honour of the great Lindy Hop Ambassador.

This is a solo class, so you won’t be attached to another human while dancing. No dance experience needed, everything we do will be beginner friendly and at a gentle pace. Each class will be different, and you don’t have to come to all of them.

For those of you who have a bit more experience, we’ll offer some variations for you to try.

Space is limited, due to Covid precautions.

Class 1 (15 May): Learn the #DanceWithFrankie TikTok routine
Class 2 (22 May): Solo 30s Charleston
