Event Information

ONLINE Live via Zoom w/ Akemi KinukawaLevels: Beginner and plus (anyone who has been hesitant about trying out solo jazz improvisation)
Do you feel intimidated while trying to improvise solo Jazz moves on the social dance floor? I do! But I have been working on it and came up with tools and exercises to make it less intimidating so let's practice together.

Part 2** (of a 2-part series)
5/26, 6/2, 6/9, 6/16 (50 minutes each)

You'll practice solo jazz improvisation. Class will start with a warm up for exploring your own creativity and getting used to dancing in the moment. Tools and exercises will be introduced which you could use to make the improvisation a bit easier and a bit more intentional so that you can express yourself to music with more freedom. In each exercise, Akemi will limit the options you have in terms of improvising so that you can focus on addressing a certain aspect of improvisation that can be more difficult. The session will end with "dancing in front of each other and for each other." Let's face it, that's a big part of our hesitation, isn't it?

**Part 1 is not a pre-requisite for Part 2. However, the knowledge of Shim Sham is a pre prerequisite (some of the exercises will use Shim Sham moves)
