Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Old school jazz dance (also known as UK jazz dance) refers to an improvised dancing style that originated in the UK in the 1970s. The style grew up in clubs in the UK, mainly in London and in northern cities, to the sounds of bebop, Afro-Cuban jazz, fusion, swing and other Latin-influenced jazz and funk.Innovative DJ Paul Murphy is generally credited with having begun the trend of playing high tempo jazz, bebop and fusion records to dancers in the early 1980s in London nightclubs such as The Horseshoe (or "Jaffa's") on Tottenham Court Road and the Electric Ballroom on Camden High Street, both most widely regarded as the birthplaces of the UK jazz dance scene.show more
