TAKE TIME TO READ
Below are some different points we would like you to know before browsing the site. Please take them into consideration and keep an open mind. 😉
- We are dancers passionate about lindy-hop and vernacular jazz. We are not professional dancers.
- We hope that the wider community will help expand on this bank by sharing their knowledge with us.
- We see this website as a tool for sharing and learning. It is not perfect and we welcome suggestions for improvement.
- We included steps that might not be vernacular jazz steps, but which we often see in modern solo jazz.
- The way we classified the jazz movements is purely subjective.
- “The only count I know is Basie”.
- We see this website as a way to share our passion for the dance we love, but we want to emphasize that we don’t think it is a replacement for a teacher. We want to encourage everyone to never stop take classes!
- To avoid property rights issues, we decided not to use music in our videos.
- Feel free to tell us if any of the reference or didactic videos we’ve included don’t seem correct, relevant, or appropriate to you. As mentioned above – we welcome feedback!
- Our community here in Montreal is largely francophone – all our counts are in French. 😉
