More than learning (or relearning) the basics from a strictly technical approach, students will tour a musical panoramic (from blues and charleston to swing and bebop), and will get a chance to experience the various feels of jazz thru a tap dancer’s approach. The class is adapted to beginners students but advanced dancers are encouraged to attend so to complete their pedagogy tool-box.
