He might be based in Berlin, Germany, but his real home (and the majority of any year) is on dance floors around the world. Entering the scene in the the 1990′s, Jered has become an international figure in Blues, Lindy Hop, Balboa and other Afro-American dances.
As a full-time teacher, his love for authentic Afro-American styles and technique makes dancers shine, giving both Leads and Follows their unique voices on the floor. As a choreographer, his work has been presented before Frankie Manning, at competitions and on theatre stages with large acclaim.
He’s also a featured speaker on Afro-American dance and music, drawing from his deep knowledge for the vernacular history and culture. Visit his site to see samples with video and photos.
Packed with creativity, authentic movement, humor, and — above all — the joy of dance, Jered’s classes always push students to new level of passion for dance.
Brooke has been called an organic follower, accidentally creative, and a vagabond street dancer. She isn’t entirely sure what these all mean, but she’s proud to hold these titles nonetheless.
She’s spent the better part of the last decade crisscrossing Canada and the U.S., recently hopping to Europe and Asia, teaching and djing as she goes, but her heart belongs to Toronto. Brooke’s philosophy is make things feel good, make ‘em look good, and above all, have fun! Her emphasis on connecting with your partner and with the music has won her a loyal following everywhere she’s gone.
Be prepared! Her methods may be somewhat unconventional but you can be sure that you’ll walk away with a lot of technique and new ideas, wrapped up in one entertaining package!
