From the Heels Up – Level 2
4-Week Exotic Foundations Mentorship with Jazzy K
For graduates of our FTHU Level 1 Mentorship program
Who is this mentorship for?
This mentorship is for you if you’ve completed our original From The Heels Up Mentorship with Jazzy K and want to improve your Exotic technique even further. This Level 2 Mentorship will build on the skills you’ve already learned, taking you from technique to flow.
As you know from our Level 1 program, this is an intensive learning experience that will fast track your exotic progress. This bespoke Mentorship is for you if you loved working with world-leading Exotic instructor, Jazzy K, and receiving personalised weekly feedback to help you progress.
By now, you know Jazzy K (@jazzykpole) well, and you are familiar with her incredible teaching skills. Jazzy has a talent for clear, precise, step-by-step instructions, breaking down the most complex movements into understandable pieces. Jazzy gives you the techniques you need, and the inspiration and support to help you become your best.
What will I learn?
In this Mentorship you will dive some of the intermediate techniques characteristic of Jazzy’s favourite style, Exotic Flow. Building on the skills you learned in Level 1, you will learn some of the more challenging flow style combinations and full-body movements that Jazzy uses to mesmerise her audiences.
Each week you’ll learn a combination of technique & choreography, so you can focus on learning & perfecting your skills, then applying them as you learn a beautiful Exotic Flow style choreography created just for you. This intensive exotic program has been exclusively developed with you in mind & is not offered anywhere else.
Week 1: Advanced Heel Technique Combos & Transitions
As you know, gorgeous flow starts from the heels up! Building on the foundational heel techniques & box work you explored in Level 1 in Week 1 you will take your heelwork to the next level! Learn more advanced ways to use your shoe as part of your foot. Learn a variety of one and two leg front edge turns and explore the sickle foot & learn how to use it to create perfect lines. As well as learning technique, you’ll start to combine what you’ve learned into a slinky choreography created just for you.
Week 2: Leg Swirls 2.0
Do you love the twirling, swirling movements seen on your favourite Exotic dancers? In Level 1 you learned how to increase dimensionality and flow using leg swirls. In Level 2, you will now incorporate leg swirls into more dynamic movements, including jumps and flows. You’ll incorporate leg swirls into a variety of different transitions and learn how to combine them for a mesmerising effect. After you’ve learned beautiful technique you’ll continue to build on the choreography.
Week 3: Power Through Waves
Remember in Level 1 you learned that body waves feature in a huge range of exotic techniques? Now, in Level 2, you’ll learn how to use body waves and leg waves to build up energy for jumps and kips. You’ll learn the correct technique for beginner kips and jumps, and harness all the beauty of spinal waves to create dynamic, seemingly effortless flow. Continue to add to the choreography you’ve learned & this week you’ll start to find your flow.
Week 4: Flow with Music
Finding your flow is all about connecting music with movement. But finding your inner musicality can be challenging! In Week 4 you’ll dive into Jazzy’s techniques for actively listening to a song and you’ll explore how to identify and use different speed and texture of movements without losing your flow. This is the Week where you start to build your own unique style. What you learn in Week 4 will improve your freestyling and help you choreograph. These two skills will help you find your own exotic style, enjoy the process more, and dance WITH the music.
