February At Thursday Night Swing

FEB_MONTH_FB_TNS_BANNER

We’re back for another month of classes and this month is extra special because we’ll be teaching two NEVER BEFORE TAUGHT AT TNS CLASSES!  That’s right TWO classes that we’ve never taught before: Continuing Blues, and Core 30s/40s Charleston!  We’re so excited to be adding these amazing classes to our monthly line up!

THE 6:30-7:30pm CLASSES

THE CONTINUING CLASS: CONTINUING LINDY HOP

IN A PINCH

Are you ever dancing and experience one of those moments where you have no idea what to do?  Music suddenly got way too fast and you can’t keep up?  Find yourself in a handhold you don’t know how to get out of?  Well never fear because all this month we’re going to be exploring how to tackle these “oh no” moments.  We’ll be throwing down four weeks of tips, tricks and techniques that will let you glide in and out of sticky situations without ever breaking a sweat!

THE EXPLORING CLASS: CONTINUING BLUES

Get ready to slow down the tempo and dig into some more advanced blues concepts this month with Adam and Krystal! Adam and Krystal will be teaching 4 weeks of intermediate blues dancing where they’ll be breaking down more advanced rhythms, techniques and movements for you all month!

THIS IS A INTERMEDIATE LEVEL CLASS, DANCERS SHOULD HAVE SOME FAMILIARITY WITH THEIR BASIC SET OF BLUES MOVEMENTS.

THE 7:30-8:30pm CLASSES

THE CORE CLASS: 8-COUNT LINDY HOP

This class will focus on teaching the basic footwork of 40s Charleston, both as a solo dancer and as a partnership.  During the course of this class will be students will learn a wider vocabulary of solo movements to increase their own body awareness as a dancer in addition to a variety of partner movements they can have fun with on the social floor.

THE FOUNDATIONS CLASS

Each week in this foundations class we’ll go over:

  • Getting your body in sync with the music and finding the swing rhythm.
  • Learning the basic 6-count swing footwork.
  • Learning how to partner with a lead/follow.
  • Learning how to move around the floor with our partner.
  • 1-2 Foundational moves (these rotate from week to week)
