The Stew

in Jazz Routines, by eiki

The Stew

Joe show the Stew, a solo jazz routine. This routine is often also known as The Mama’s Stew routine.

The Stew is a vintage warm-up choreography used by Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers to warm up before practicing their routines.

This routine is often called the Mama’s Stew routine as Mama Lu & The Parkets very famously performed it together.

Teacher: Joe DeMers
