Tranky Doo Workshop 12th February

There’s a Tranky Doo workshop coming up on Sunday 12th February!  It’s an awesome solo jazz routine that’s a step up from the Shim Sham but not quite as hard as the Big Apple!

The workshop is open to absolute beginners and experienced dancers alike, starting from the basic step giving you a few showy moves and a good workout. The workshop has two sections; the first section gives you a short fun routine and the second section focuses on developing the steps you’ve learnt in the first section, introducing a freestyle aspect (but in a structured way). This will give you the confidence to Charleston anywhere.
