Class Description

You are invited to Red Star instructor Kelley's favorite dance event of the year: Solo Jazz Step Throwdown.

Work up a sweat with an hour of non-stop solo jazz step madness! Strut and stroll with local instructors from Red Star and the Corvallis Swing Dance Society as they lead the class in solo jazz routines designed for minimal talking and maximum dancing. You'll experience classic swing line dances such as the Shim Sham and the Tranky Doo as well as dances choreographed by the instructors just for this event.

This event was created two years ago by Kelley to introduce the Corvallis dance community to solo jazz dancing. It's the perfect event for those who may be intimidated by partner dancing because it's all solo dance. Just bring your energy, your friends, and your love of jazz and swing.

 

Reservations

Reservations won't be taken for the Solo Jazz Step Throwdown because the event is FREE with unlimited space for attendees.

Come by yourself, bring your friends and family, and bring a water bottle. No experience is necessary.

THIS EVENT IS COMPLETELY FREE and is open to the public and to individuals of all skill levels. You can expect "follow-the-leader" or "Zumba-style" instruction. Comfortable clothing and water bottles are encouraged. 

8-9 p.m. at Odd Fellows Hall, 223 SW 2nd St., Corvallis, OR 97330.
