The Garrison Experience was founded by Charlotte-based dancer, choreographer, and teacher, Kyle Garrison Shawell, out of the need for a concert dance company that focuses on the aesthetic of jazz dance – the roots, the movements, and the performance.

Kyle Garrison teaches a variety of jazz classes in the Charlotte community.

Inspired by movements from classical ballet and modern dance, Jazz dance teaches rhythm, musicality, and coordination.
