Dance artist Stefanie Weber will deliver a soulful menu of -what are now- classic Jazz dance techniques: isolations, hinges, footwork, and moving phrases. Experience a seamless blend of detailed choreography and freestyle movement that feels both invigorating and at times effortless. While combining fluidity and grace with bold accents and style, this class is for those that have something to express from deep within their bones.
Musical accompaniments will range from Billie Holiday to PJ Harvey, John Lee Hooker to The White Stripes, Duke Ellington to Michael Jackson. Wear Jazz shoes, sneakers, or go barefoot. It’s up to you, just be prepared to strut, spin and slink.
