Malin Grahn & Clyde Wilder

The popular dance class starts again at the Festivity Hall of Caisa on September 21. The focus in this class is on partner dancing so we will be working a lot on communication with the partner as well as rhythms and musicality.

We want to make sure to give all of our students a solid foundation of the basics of the dance. The class starts from the beginnings. Returning students, on the other hand, will have a chance to work on more variations, foot work, and style.

Price: 100/80 euros; reduced price for members of Helsinki Traditional Jazz Dance Society ry.

Camel Walking, fish tail, bird movements, pony dance, boogie woogie … all of which are derived from the traditional jazz dance movements.
