|Marilyn York presents Jazz Dance train the trainer workshops that help professional dance instructors expand their teaching skills to include Jazz Dance. The program includes:
Marilyn has had unusual opportunities in her dance career to learn from jazz dance artists: Luigi, Frank Hatchet, Gus Giordano, and others. They noticed her very natural jazz dance technique early on. She weaves this exposure and appreciation for jazz dance through the decades of the 20th century into all of her programs.
Her primary interest in these workshops is to help others continue this indigenous American dance heritage. Marilyn has been teaching ballet, modern and jazz dance for more than 30 years in the Washington DC metropolitan area. She describes how dance students tend to build jazz dance techniques year by year and provides guidance on making dance developmentally appropriate, challenging and fun. She emphasizes a strong classical dance (ballet and modern) foundation for jazz dance.
