Special Guest Performance with a live Q&A

featuring Kezia Nell in Miami

This singer/songwriter will perform live tonight!

 

“A vixen vocalist whose voice slyly creeps through the air like a sliver of cigarette smoke that coyly searches its way through a New Orleans jazz lounge. Her stage presence is a picture of delicate elegance as the diminutive singer coils around her microphone, delivering searching songs that traverse folk, jazz, country and electro pop.”

Blessed with silky tones and sassy poise, svelte chanteuse Kezia Nell announced her arrival in America with her first US release, "My Miami- Kezia Vs The Lizard," a joint venture with Miami house producer British Lizard.

A uniquely old soul, Kezia was reared on a diet of 60’s soul and psychedelia, which is reflected in her upcoming debut album. She describes the album as ‘Eclectic” as it moves from sultry soul to rockabilly.

General Things to

  • Auto-Muted Audio

    Your audio will be automatically muted when you join the meeting, and your video on. Please keep these settings so that the main screen remains on the teachers. If you have a question, don't forget to unmute!

  • Auto-on Video

    Once you allow Zoom to access your camera, the meetings are set to automatically have your camera turned on. This is so we can see you, practice together, and break moves down a little more where we see there is a general difficulty or a question (just like REAL class!).

  • Have a Question?

    Write your questions and comments in the group chat!

  • Music during class

    Check the class section for a Spotify link to a special playlist for each day! This way if internet is lagging, you can always turn us down and play the music at home.

During these hard times, we must do what we can to protect the local dance community and postpone large gatherings until we can ensure your safety. The reality is COVID-19 could easily spread throughout our dance community. If we do what we can now (i.e. consistent hand washing, social distancing, limiting exposure to large crowds) community spread can be reduced dramatically.

Stay tuned on social and check your inboxes for future plans, as we will collaborate with the rest of the community and continue to create dance opportunities during this difficult time.

If anyone falls ill please call the COVID-19 Call Center available 24/7
+1 (866) 779-6121 or email COVID-19@flhealth.gov
