New and unconventional movements
A fusion of Modern, Jazz, and Ballet, Slam’s unique style explores a wide range of organic, often angular movements and syncopated rhythms with a base in classical technique. His Contemporary Jazz class emphasises artistry and musicality, while it challenges the dancer to move in new, unconventional ways. Beginning with a warm-up of Modern-influenced, Ballet-based exercises that focus on proper execution of the movement and alignment, the class evolves to the learning of Slam’s original choreography, broken down and demonstrated for clear understanding.
For Intermediate and Advanced levels the understanding of the classical vocabulary and previous experience with Jazz and/or Modern dance are helpful.
