Gilles Peterson at Shiftless Shuffle - Sunday 21 October 2012

Message from the JazzCotech Dancers...

We have done it again! Shiftless Shuffle on Sunday 21st October at East Village features a one-off and exclusive collaboration of 3 of the most legendary DJs on the UK Jazz Dance scene: Gilles Peterson, Colin Parnell & Boo, famed for their respective sessions at Horseshoe, Electric Ballroom and of course Dingwalls. This is the first ever time they are united behind the decks and because of this, we have extended the session to run from 2pm until 8pm.

Shiftless Shuffle, now in its 12th year, is the brainchild of Perry Louis, founder of JazzCotech Dancers. The afternoon starts at 2pm with a 1 hour class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style From Funk to Fusion, taught only by JazzCotech. The class is open to Novices and experienced Dancers alike, providing the opportunity to learn from the masters themselves, including all of the rhythmical, intricate footwork and so-called drop moves that are iconic and exclusive to this style. The ensuing club session has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK, including some of the best and original Jazz Dancers the UK has to offer.

Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is THE place to hang out so why not join us to strut your stuff, take in the incredible music, or simply kick back with a drink or two and enjoy watching the many Dancers do their thing.

Shiftless Shuffle, Sunday 21st October @ East Village (Basement) 89 Gt Eastern Street. London EC2A 3HX. Old St / Liverpool St Tube/BR. Class at 2pm; Club Session 3pm - 8pm. £8:00

Hope to see many of you there!
