Regular Wednesday Classes


Solo classes!
The next 3-week set of solo classes: 24th November, 1st and 8th of December at St Michael’s School Hall

Pre-registration required (email us!) by 5pm Tuesday 25th November.
After the success of our last two sets of solo classes we have some more great solo classes lined up for you! We are still not ready to resume partner dancing,* but we are confident that we can run solo dancing classes safely within the Covid level 2 guidelines.  

6:15pm – Trickeration with Caroline – learn this classic solo Jazz routine danced and taught around the world by Norma Miller, it has origins in the chorus dancers at Harlem’s Apollo theatre around themid 1930’s. This class is intermediate-advanced level, we’d expect you to know a range of jazz moves such as those in recent classes or other strolls e.g. Shim Sham, and be prepared to mix them up a bit – it doesn’t have “trick” in the name of the routine for no reason! We don’t cover this one in Christchurch very often so this is a great opportunity and will be heaps of fun! (Performance troupe members encouraged to attend!).
7:30pm Open Level Solo Jazz with Jethro – you may have met him at CSF or teaching at Dunedin’s Mid-Winter Swing, but either way we are pleased to welcome Jethro to Christchurch and have him teach some classes whilst he’s here!  This set is going to focus on musicality for solo jazz and will be a lot of fun, not to be missed!
