Slow Jamz is a dance fusion by different dance styles with a smoother and softer movement language and sexy, "chillaxing" tunes that make you feel good. Elements from Nina’s contemporary and ballet backgrounds mixed with a flavour of Urban Dance and Modern Jazz.
Be prepared to dance in socks or barefoot, in sneakers or one time high heels (not mandatory).
OTHER WORKSHOPS OF Nina Kripas
Go with the Flow!
My class is built up in 3 steps: Warm-up, technique and some choreography.
My Warm-up is a "typical" Warm-up to get the body "warmed up" and to prevent injuries with some strengthening and stretching exercises for the whole body before starting to work with it.
The technique part can vary and can be anything from some Old School HipHop trills, Bboying, Top Rocks to Popping and Locking basics to isolations etc.
It usually depends on what needs to be worked on or what the students desire to learn and even what we are simply in the mood to do.
The third part of the class, the choreography part, is an outcome of my body language of how I move and how I naturally combine all my influences of different dance styles and my creativity, which is influenced by music and life in general.
In my class I use many styles that might not fall strictly into the category HipHop but are inspired by HipHop, Funky Styles, House elements, Dancehall, Voguing etc.
Most of all I like to have fun in class and inspire people to dance with their heart and soul without any limitations.
My motto is "going with the flow" and I want "us" to feed of each other's energy and have a good time. Bring your best smile or "mugshot" face as long as you bring your true selves!
