Tradition & Modernity
The focus of this Workshop is the work from the back, where the Port de Bras begins and the Swing – the movement resulting from an impulse. It is very important to know from where we come and where we are in the "here & now". Modernity is ever important in a class with a certain respect to tradition. At the very foundation Jazz dance is about "mixing and creating". We are used to adapt to the times and the present musical culture, which results in an up-to-date Jazz dance – well-founded in its times and coherent.
This is a concept that Bruce TAYLOR uses in his teaching, a very pleasant and amusing experience. "My style, mixing Modern dance with the swing, emotion and energy of Jazz rendering the movement into an honest, direct and clear one."
