A weekend dedicated to dancing solo! Discovering rhythm and movement in your own body and how to express yourself more through the language of dance!
Though with a focus on jazz and blues movement, we’re so happy to mix it up and include other solo dancing to broaden horizons and spark your interest.
We’ll explore jazz and blues in different contexts like jazz movements on other musical styles and Latin Blues, as well as rhythms and juggling! Saturday’s classes are dedicated to exploring styles that push our limits: Samba no pé, Hip Hop, House, Body Isolations, Floorwork, African Dance.
Our Saturday and Sunday parties will make you mix up your dancing styles and put you in other rhythms and moods, dancing solo or with a partner. You choose! We just hope you’ll open your heart and mind and embrace music and dance in so many different forms.
It’s our idea that Lisbon is just the right city to come and explore different dances. There’s a strong mix of cultures here in the city and dance communities enjoy mixing together because we all have one thing in common – we just want to dance!

Workshops on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoons. •Open level classes in different styles to push solo jazz dancers out of the box: samba no pé, afro-tribal, hip hop, house, isolations, floorwork •1.5 hour class about preparing your body for dancing, taught by a physiotherapist! •Group warmups at the beginning of the day • Group stretching at the end of the day •3 parties where we push you out of your dancing limits and mix up the music styles!
