Josie Say

JOSIE SAY has thrived in the arts and entertainment industry for over 25 years and through her love of acting and theatre, she found her passion for dance. Based in CA and NY, she travels internationally as a teacher, choreographer, and performer. One of the first vernacular jazz revivalists in the early 1990s and known for her fusion of traditional and contemporary styles, Josie has influenced multiple generations of the swing dance community. Josie’s dedication to preserving not only the art form of lindy hop, but the history and culture surrounding it, led her to study and work with Tony Award winner Frankie Manning, and found the collective, Harlem Soul. ​In recent years, Josie has been a featured performer at Carnegie Hall, The Apollo Theater​ and Jazz at Lincoln Center​. An explorer of movement and wellness, Josie also is an aerialist and aspiring contortionist, certified teacher of Yoga, AcroYoga, Bungee and Ring Thing, and a Master Trainer for AntiGravity Fitness.

Josie Say のダンスインストラクター&パフォーマーとしてのキャリアは豪華。これまでにカーネギーホール、アポロシアター、ジャズリンカーンセンターなどの錚々たる舞台に出演。フランキーマニングから直に習い、さらに共に仕事もこなしてきました。世界には多くのリンディのインストラクターがいますが、リンディの生まれたハーレムのスピリッツをしっかり持ち合わせているインストラクターはさほどいません。Josie のこれまでの素晴らしい経験を伝授してもらう、この絶好の機会をどうぞお見逃しなく。
