Hi all My name is Rick Heiman, Artistic Director of BelCobraDance (www belcobradance.com), the California based professional fusion dance company, and founder and instructor in Cobra Jazz Dance classes (www cobrajazzdance.com). Cobra Jazz Dance is a high energy fusion of jazz, Latin dance and belly dance. Classes are currently held at 1:30 P.M. on Fridays (starting up again Friday January 6th) at Focus Fish Studios, 6121 Santa Monica Blvd. near Gower, in Hollywood. I also teach teen/ adult jazz (essentially also a Cobra Jazz Dance class) on Tuesdays in Castro Valley at Center for the Dance. This class is particularly well suited for Latin dancers who already have a couple of years of jazz and/ or ballet training, want to learn new ways to spice up their hip, upper body and arm movements in salsa, cha-cha, rhumba, and even samba, and also want to improve their turns, power of movement and musicality. Full details are available on the Cobra Jazz Dance website. Class fee is $10 drop in in Hollywood, $50 per month in Castro Valley, and first class is free in either location!
