A lover of Satchmo (Louis Armstrong) and Nat King Cole since childhood, it was the swingin’ tunes that drew Earanee to her first Lindy Hop class in her hometown of Adelaide, Australia. Bitten by the jitterbug, Earanee soon began following her love of swing dance around the globe, and has since taught and competed across Australia, Europe and the US.
Starting with rhythm as the foundation, you'll begin to build your repertoire of jazz steps, and how you can use these to improvise. On top of that, we'll also take a look at some of the jazz greats! From Al Minns and Leon James, to Tops and Wilda, to Mabel Lee - in this class we'll take a look at how some of the old school Savoy dancers interpreted authentic jazz repertoire, and how taking ideas from them can help to inspire our own creativity.
We often talk about 'phrasing' in jazz, but what does it really mean for our dancing beyond simple patterns that end with a break? In this class you'll explore different forms in jazz, and how this structure can inspire our choices rhythmically - both in terms of choreography and improvisation. On top of that, we'll also be working on solo dancing as a social dance, and how we can best communicate and interact with others in our solo.
