Jovon will lead you on a deep dive into jazz, teaching you to hear with a musician’s ear and to immerse yourself in musical creativity. You will learn secrets of improvisation, including techniques to help you to adapt your movement to any music. You will discover your unique rhythm and style, transforming the way you dance!

Practice Space (Tuesdays 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.)

•        Location: Lowdown Ballroom (628 11th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98102; look for a house with a small sign)
•        Cost: Free for members, $5 for nonmembers 

The Savoy Practice Space is open at the Lowdown Ballroom every Tuesday evening starting at 8:30 p.m. Maybe you want to practice your Shim Sham or get a handle on the swingout. Maybe you want to film your Balboa turns, or just improvise without enraging your downstairs neighbor. Whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, if there's something you want to work on, this is the place.
