Authentic vintage jazz dance involves dancing to music from the jazz and swing eras. From the 1920’s to the 1930s and 1940’s, it can be danced in various styles to suit a wide range of music...

Originating as a street dance from the African American community, the classes will be full of rhythm,  help with improvisation and will allow you to develop your own personal groove.

This is a solo dance style and will be covering a range of vintage jazz steps, routines and choreography like the Charleston and much more. Have fun and get a great workout at the same time!
