Sunday 17th August will be Shiftless Shuffle’s 1st anniversary at our new home at Duke’s, and we’re celebrating that milestone by debuting a living Legend DJ who has championed many musical club styles through the last 5 decades. Colin Curtis is one of THE most notable DJs of the UK JazzFunk, Boogie soul and Fusion scene; he was one of the Jazz Dance DJ pioneers in the late 1970s along with Paul Murphy & Dr Bob Jones, and his ground breaking sessions are credited with influencing people such as Gilles Peterson and many others with his mixture of Fusion, BeBop, Brazilian and Latin Jazz. Joining Colin behind the decks is no other than DJ Perry Louis who needs no introduction. As front man of Shiftless Shuffle and leader of the JazzCotech Dancers, Perry has spun his Vinyl around the world for many years, as well as getting busy on the Dance floor. They say Dancers make the best DJs so let’s put that to the test!
Shiftless Shuffle is a unique Jazz Dance session that combines a one hour class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style with a 4 hour club session that follows the class. The class is open to Novices and experienced Dancers alike and will be tailored to all needs on the day, providing the opportunity to learn the rhythmical, intricate footwork and so-called drop moves that are iconic and exclusive to this style.
The ensuing club session has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK, including some of the best and original Jazz Dancers the UK has to offer. Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is the place to hang out, be seen and be inspired to strut your stuff to some incredible music, or simply kick back with a drink and enjoy watching the many Dancers do their thing.
Expect amazing music and an explosive session on the Dance floor!
