The special edition- some words from the "Boss": In this workshop you get a chance to work with your authentic jazz in a performance perspective. The classes will include choreography, fundamentals with authentic jazz and how to present your dancing. It will be 8 hours classes, where 2-3 hours is specifically a choreo. What is unique is that the choreo will be performed together with moose maniacs on Sunday evening in their show “swinging dance puzzle”. Logistically you will have a spot near the stage and just get up for your dancenumber and then go back and enjoy the rest of the show. All the performances by the students will be in the first 3rd of the show. 1 hour will be Sunday afternoon on the actual spot where the performance take place where you get a chance to run though what is happening on the show. Rest of the classes is fundamental classes and practice to perform a jazz choreo and how to present it in a level of your dancing. There are 3 levels of groups in the showtrack of authentic jazz. Each group gets at least one choreo that they will perform with Moose Maniacs. The theme of the choreo is adapted for the level of the group. This is a great chance to perform in a group with the guidance of very experienced performers. (If you want to participate in the classes but not in the show it is of course ok.) A very common question is if you need a costume for the performance and this is not the case. You have what clothes you want in the show. You will meet at least 4 of the 6 dancers in Moose Maniacs who is Mattias Lundmark,Mikaela Hellsten, Maja Hellsten, Markus Rosendal,Rasmus Holmqvist and Elin Rhodiner in your classes. And as far as the choro concerned it will be taught by one specific teacher who will take care of you during the actual show. Looking forward to meet you on the stage!!
