Jamica Zion is a national instructor, choreographer, and performer who specializes in black vernacular dances, including but not limited to: Jazz, Lindy Hop, and many Blues idioms. With over ten years of experience, she identifies as an academic-activist-artist. Jamica has dedicated her life to these dances for many reasons. Some of her favorite reasons are their historical and cultural significance (community building and creative acts of resistance!), and their prioritization of creative individuality.
Her students can expect flexible guidance through the class material, fun facts, and usually a good laugh or two. Her classes are less focused on moves and more so on refining technique that allows for the most comfortable connection between partners and their expression to the music.
