Another exclusive for Shiftless Shuffle Dancefloor Jazz class and club, Sunday 18th February! All our sessions have been superb in bringing people together and enjoying all forms of Dancefloor Jazz and this one’s no different, as we’re featuring, in their Shiftless debut, Floyd & Errol from Nottingham.
Nottingham has always been a major location for UK Dancefloor Jazz; from the famous sessions at Rock City in the late 1970s and 1980s, through to today’s Out to Lunch sessions which are now in their 20th year. It’s no surprise, then, that some of Nottingham’s finest Dancers have turned to DJing, collecting Vinyl over the years and attending a host of Jazz Dance sessions in the UK and beyond.
We’re partnering Floyd & Eric up with no other than da Boss Perry Louis, founder of the famous JazzCotech Dancers and of course the originator and force behind Shiftless Shuffle. Perry is one of the most prolific DJs of the Jazz, Funk, Soul and JazzFunk genres in the world, travelling the globe to spin his Vinyl (and only Vinyl); of course, he’s also one of UK’s finest when it comes to all things Dance so expect to see him ‘cause trouble’ on the floor in between DJ sets!
As always, we will start Shiftless Shuffle with a 1 hour long class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style which is open to Novices and experienced Dancers alike and will be tailored to all needs on the day, providing the opportunity to learn the rhythmical, intricate footwork and so-called drop moves that are iconic and exclusive to this style. Teaching it are the hosts of the day – JazzCotech Dancers who have danced with all the greats from Incognito to James Brown and Roy Ayers and who are currently the only Dance group teaching this style.
The ensuing club session has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK. Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is the place to hang out, be seen and be inspired to strut your stuff to some incredible music, or simply kick back with a drink and enjoy watching the many Dancers do their thing.
Price: £7.00 on the door
