Here’s the amazing line up for April’s classes:

THE 6:30-7:30pm CLASSES

THE CONTINUING/EXPLORING CLASS: CONTINUING SOLO JAZZ

Alone!? You want me to dance…. alone…. gulp….

This month we’re digging down deep into solo jazz and working on our solo movements as dancers!

Be aware that this is an Int Solo Jazz class and we suggest students have some basic familiarity with a few solo jazz movements going into the class, however since you will be working alone for the series, adventurous solo jazz beginners are welcome.

THE 7:30-8:30pm CLASSES

THE CORE CLASS: 8-COUNT LINDY HOP

This class will teach the fundamental 8-count patterns of Lindy Hop, such as the swing-out and circle. It will also focus on how to combine 8-count moves with the 6-count moves learned in the fundamental classes.

-Taught By Marcus Thompson & Amanda Demmel

THIS IS A BEGINNING CLASS, NO PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE OR PARTNER IS REQUIRED.

THE FOUNDATIONS CLASS

This class is set up as a weekly drop in class meant to introduce new students to the basic fundamentals of swing dancing.

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)

THIS IS A BEGINNING CLASS, NO PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE OR PARTNER IS REQUIRED.


8:30-10:00pm OPEN DANCING

Then as always, at 8:30 we’ll open up the floor and have open social dancing and practice time until 10:00 with some of the best swing DJs in town spinning tunes just for you!
