Our adult jazz classes are badass! Most of the content is inspired by vernacular jazz of the 1910’s through 1940’s during the hot jazz and swing era. However, your instructors also take some inspiration from more modern sources like soul, funk, and hip hop! Overall we treat solo jazz as a street dance, meaning it’s not institutionalized and there’s emphasis on self-expression and improvisation.
Birkley Wisniewski and Turlough Meyers are Sugar Swing’s authentic jazz instructors. With an extensive background studying swing and jazz (and more lately african and tap) for many years each, they have taught workshops across the prairies and have traveled to far places to learn from all the old masters of jazz. You are in good hands!
