Beginner Authentic Jazz Dance - Live Online

with Jennifer Kain, Old Orchard Beach/Saco Adult and Community Education



only 3 seats left

Authentic jazz classes cover the vernacular movements of the 1930s and 40s as used in solo and partnered swing dancing. The style is rooted in the dances originated by Black dancers in places like the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, New York and is characterized by strong rhythms, musicality and individuality. Learn basic moves and short sequences with lots of time to practice to the big band and traditional jazz music of the 1920s through 1940s.

Note: Students should wear comfortable shoes or sneakers that aren’t too sticky on the floor, allowing for some twisting and sliding.

Jennifer Kain of Lindy Maine is an experienced teacher of tap, swing dancing, and solo vernacular jazz. She has taught locally with with her own business, Lindy Maine, as well as Portland Swing Project, Biddeford Adult Education, and Portland Adult Education.
