JazzCotech start the new year by welcoming back UK Fusion Aficionado Eric X to the Shiftless Shuffle hallowed decks, back by popular demand!
Eric X has DJ’d at every major ‘legendary’ Jazz Dance session in living history – from the famous Birmingham Powerhouse All-Dayers via the Electric Ballroom in Camden, the Wag in Soho and Rock City in Nottingham. Known for his large collection of Fusion Jazz, Eric’s aim is to get a Dancefloor moving and enjoy the various dance floor gems that he has in his armoury.
Joining Eric behind the decks is no other than DJ Perry Louis who needs no introduction because he is, of course, da boss, as well as the creative Director of the JazzCotech Dancers. Perry started Shiftless Shuffle back in 2001 and in the last 17 years, has developed it into one of the most iconic Dancefloor Jazz clubs in the world, inspiring spin-offs all over Europe and Japan.
Shiftless Shuffle is a unique Jazz Dance session that combines a 1-hour class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style with a 5-hour club session that follows the class. The class is open to novices and experienced Dancers alike and will be tailored to all needs on the day, providing the opportunity to learn the rhythmical, intricate footwork and so-called drop moves that are iconic and exclusive to this style. Teaching it are the JazzCotech Dancers, who have danced with all the greats from Incognito to James Brown and Roy Ayers.
The ensuing club session has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK. Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is the place to hang out, be seen and be inspired to strut your stuff to some incredible music, or simply kick back with a drink and enjoy watching the many Dancers do their thing.
DJs Eric X & Perry Louis make a unique pairing of knowledge and quality music for the dance floor. One not to be missed
