London Tap Jam are delighted to welcome back Roxane Butterfly.
She will be our special guest at the January Jam, plus we are hosting some great workshops. Here's a chance to study with a modern master of Tap Dance.
HOOFING TECHNIQUE INT/ADV
1-2:30pm, Dance Attic
Roxane pulls all her material in this class from her direct experience with the 'Original Hoofers', including her mentor Jimmy Slyde. You will learn some of their signature steps, which will engage you to work on quality of movements, phrasing and clarity of intention.
JAZZ BECAUSE INT/ADV
2:30-4pm, Dance Attic
This class will explore various approaches to understanding jazz, building solos, dancing melodies, whether improvised or choreographed. You will hear tracks from distinct eras of jazz, from traditional swing, to bebop, free jazz and conceptual jazz. You will also be engaged in a play on phrasing, breathing, interaction, time keeping, constructive deconstruction, quality of sounds, and collective improvisation.
