So, this year we have 4 tracks of classes in order to accomodate all of the dancers and to keep class sizes down. With this in mind, we still anticipate CJ selling out early so please sign up in advance to ensure your spot. MASTERS TRACK This year we will be adding a masters track that will be audition only. This track is meant to offer the highest level of classes to our most advanced dancers. The audition will be held on Saturday morning at 10am and the masters track will be limited in size. THE JUMP SESSION SHOW This year we have a huge treat for you...we are producing a one hour show called The Jump Session: Jazz through the Ages on Friday night. It is the story of jazz dance from the early 1900's to the 1940's. It will feature the CJ instructors and many other performers in tap, jazz, lindy hop, blues, cakewalk, snakehips, charleston and more. The show will be performed to a live 10 piece big band and emcee'd by Sean Morris. This will be a highlight of the weekend; something you will most definitely not want to miss!!
