Savage Rhythm - Solo Roots Jazz @ Monorchid

Prepare for an hour of badass jazz movement. You will sweat, challenge the way your body moves, and have an amazing time.

Solo jazz movement is the basis of all swing and lindy hop. Vernacular or traditional jazz dance plants its roots in the theaters and ballrooms of early 20th Century America. Its roots are grounded, earthy, and polyrhythmic expressions of jazz music. It is fun, it is a work out, and it is awesome!

This is an open class format: drop-ins welcome!  :)
