New Year New Term!

Happy New Year everyone! We sincerely hope 2022 brings light and joy to you all. This month we’re restarting our lindy hop classes with Reading University Swing Dance Society as follows:

Starting: Wednesday 12 January

7:30pm // Level 2 – Improvers & Returners

All those who were with us last term as welcome to level up to our improver class where we’ll be continuing to develop upon the foundations we established last year. Returning dancers are also welcome to refresh their memories in this class.

Starting: Wednesday 26 January

8:30pm // Level 1 – Absolute Beginners

Our Level 1 class will be restarting from scratch again, so if you’re an absolute beginner or perhaps a returning student wishing to try out develop your non-dominant role join us! All welcome, no previous experience required.

September: Online Classes Return

Our online classes are return this month with an initial 3-week run from 6th September until 23 September.

Join us for LEVEL 1 – Solo Jazz Fundamentals on Mondays at 7pm and LEVEL 2 – Solo Jazz Choreography on Thursdays at 7pm. More information about these classes can be found on our solo classes page.

Both classes are £5 per person per class and will be hosted on zoom. Join our RSJ Solo Jazz & Charleston Class facebook group for zoom links, updates and notifications.

Online classes resume this week!

Happy New Year everyone! The sad news is we still can’t partner dance in person together yet… The good news is we can meet online to solo jam! We’ve got two weekly online classes for you:

MONDAYS: LEVEL 1 – SOLO JAZZ STEPS & VARIATIONS

Fundamental Solo Jazz steps and variations broken down from scratch – All welcome, absolute beginners encouraged! Starting 11 January.

THURSDAYS: LEVEL 2 – SOLO JAZZ MINICHOREOS

We’ll be taking our Solo Jazz repertoire and putting it together into fun mini-choreos and interesting step combos. All welcome but as some previous experience is assumed this class will move faster than the Level 1 class.

Visit our class page for full details and zoom links, and please join our RSJ Solo Jazz & Charleston Class facebook group to be notified of any class updates.

Online Classes – Solo Jazz & Charleston

Our Solo Jazz classes are still going strong online. We’ve got two levels to choose from,  Level 1 for beginners and Level 2 for intermediate dancers:

In Level 1 on Mondays at 7pm we’ll be focusing on particular steps and breaking them down from scratch. This class will be pitched to absolute beginners and those wanting to plug in the gaps in their repertoire.

In Level 2 on Thursdays at 7pm we’ll be taking our existing Solo Jazz knowledge to the next level with variations, step combos, mini-choreographies and improvisation. This class will be pitched to those who already have some Solo Jazz experience and have already learnt routines such as the Shim Sham, Tranky Doo, etc.

To join us for either class you’ll need to download/register for Zoom. Full details about these online classes, including prices and registration etc, are on our class webpage as well as class events on our facebook page and dedicated class facebook group. Look forward to seeing you there!
