"Don't call yourself a 'Jazz Dancer' if you know nothing about jazz!"
Do Jazz Dancers have a future in Jazz Music or just companies and musical theater? Is there a closer link between Jazz and Hip Hop that requires just some extra musical training? Leah gladly shares her accumulated knowledge of her two loves, Music and Dance in Workshops and Master classes. Her newest Workshop is exploring dance and music improvisation. LIVE. Playing jazz music asks for an understanding of musical phrasing, rhythm and communication.
