JT Swing Teams - Zurich - Season 6

We are very happy to announce the next season of JT Swing Teams in Zurich!

What is JT Swing Teams?

Some of you have probably seen routines from previous seasons abroad on international events like the Budafest, UK Champs, Nordic Swing and D-Town Swing, etc, and certainly many of you have seen the Zurich team great performance at Swingtzerland, and first routine in Silbando, SalsaMania, and Dance Inn party.

From the dancers' perspective learning choreography offers a unique environment not only to learn new patterns but also to improve partnering and personal skillsets, quality of movement, musicality, and showmanship. With JT Swing Teams dancers have an amazing opportunity to learn a routine choreographed by Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollmann.

This Fall, Gyuri and Florence are going to teach and coach JT’s routine for Season 5 in Zurich.

Level

We will run JT Swing Team’s JV level routine (JV stands for Junior Varsity), which suppose to be challenging for people competing in Novice level. For those of you who have done previous seasons with us, the difficulty is similar, a slightly more challenging. To attend the classes a good level of West Coast Swing, and/or experience in choreography in other dances is required. We recommend this classes for our Level 4 and 5 students. You must sign up with a fixed partner that you are willing to work over the semester. There is no rotation in the class. If you are in doubt whether your knowledge is good enough, feel free to ask either Gyuri or Florence by email or in person.

Schedule Overview

Based on our previous experiences we have chosen to teach the choreography in an intensive fashion. The classes are organized in terms of weekend intensives while providing practices and coaching sessions on some of the weekdays afterwards
