November/December At Thursday Night Swing

NOV-DEC_FB_TNS_BANNER

TNS is booming!  We’re so excited to have so many passionate people coming out to dance each week and we can’t wait to share all the amazing classes we have in store for you next!

Because November and December are both short months for classes due to holidays, we’ve decided to combine the classes within them into continuing 6-week series’! This means you’ll get to go more in depth and explore even more within our amazing classes!  We are really excited!

But enough chit chat, here’s what we have on deck for the next two months:

THE 6:30-7:30pm CLASSES

THE CONTINUING CLASS: CONTINUING CHARLESTON

For the first three weeks of November and the first three weeks of December at TNS we’ll be diving down deep into solo and Tandem Charleston!

*This will be a 6-week class taught over the course of the first three Thursdays of November and December.

-Taught By: Jason & Danielle

THIS IS AN INTERMEDIATE CLASS, STUDENT SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH ALL THEIR BASIC CHARLESTON MOVEMENTS.

THE EXPLORING CLASS: BEGINNER BALBOA

For our exploring class this month we’re going to be teaching a 4 week introductory course on the fundamentals of Balboa.   You’ll learn everything from the basic footwork and patterns of Pure Bal, to some more advanced Bal-Swing movements.  This class is perfect for beginners, or intermediate students who would like to brush up on their basics.  Don’t know what Balboa looks like?  Check out this video HERE, for a great example of the beautiful elegant dance.

*This will be a 6-week class taught over the course of the first three Thursdays of November and December.

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


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.

*Since there is a holiday both of these months that shortens each of them to having only 3 Thursdays we can teach on, we have decided to combine the two months into one 6-week long class.  This will ensure that we are able to maintain the integrity of the classes information and not have to rush through things in only three weeks time.  The class will take place on the first three Thursday of Nov and Dec.

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)

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!
