Want to dance better with different genres of music? You probably need to learn from “the evolution of music and dance!” The course is ideal for those who want to draw inspiration from history, and travel through history to see where the music we dance to was born and how it evolved through the years. Let’s throw yourself into the music and start dancing with Elze!
Comes from a vibrant dance scene in Vilnius, Lithuania. You can recognize Elze from her contagious energy and loud laugh. Elze has been traveling and teaching Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz in various festivals and workshops abroad as well as growing her local dance community where she is one of the owners of What a Jazz dance studio.
