What is JT Swing Team?
JT Swing Team is an initiative created by 11 time World Champions Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollman. Over their careers, they've learned a ton through doing choreography; the JT Swing Team project is a way for them to share their knowledge through choreographies they create, with dancers all over the world.
As members of the Global JT Swing team community, we're in excellent company with teams in the US, Asia, Central America and Europe. As an approved JT Swing Team Leader, I will be directing this seasons choreography created by Jordan and Tatiana. As a new team, we will be learning and performing the Jr. Varsity Level Choreography which is rated as Novice/Intermediate Level.
It is my goal to give our Edmonton community a boost to the next level by developing our technical and performance skills, by creating a team mentality, sharing our love of West Coast Swing with a growing community of dancers...and have a blast while we're doing it!
Check out the choreography from a couple of season 1 JR. Varsity and Varsity teams!
Our Philosophy: Learn 'To' Dance
All of our programs are designed to teach dancers the fundamentals of any partnered dance form.
Throughout our sessions, we target
partnered and individual dance skills, with technical focus style specific techniques.
Our Programs: Learn 'A' Dance / Grow 'A' Dance
Learn 'A' Dance
Learn 'A' Dance sessions focus on specific dance styles - each session introduces the style basics, root patterns and simple variations. Here we learn the 'rules of the dance'.
Grow 'A' Dance
Grow 'A' Dance sessions are for those who have a solid understanding of and ability to demonstrate the basics and 'rules of the dance'. At this level, we develop techniques and explore more complex partnering, connections and variations of a given style.
