Afro Jazz

Afro Jazz is a jazz style of dance with Afrocentric influences. We will be exploring a few different genres and incorporating some Afro jazz movement to broaden, compliment, and enrich the quality of movement for the dancer as well as the style. This workshop will offer innovative choreo from beginner’s to more advanced dancers. Emphasis will be on enjoying the freedom of released and contracted movement.
