LINDY HOP WORKSHOP
WITH JESSICA MILTENBERGER & BOBBY WHITE
December 14th & 15th 2018 • Huntsville, AL
That’s right, we’re flying Lindy Focus’ Superheroes of Swing champion Jessica Miltenberger and international swing dance instructor Bobby White all the way from New York City this December to bring you one epic day of Lindy Hop magic!
We’ll kick off the weekend Friday Night with a pre-party dance, then on Saturday Jessica & Bobby will be throwing down FOUR HOURS of Lindy Hop goodness for you. Finally to cap off a killer day, your workshop pass also includes entrance into Huntsville’s Annual Regional Meet-Up Dance Party that evening where you’ll get to swing out all night with dancers from all over the South East!
NOTE: This will be intermediate/advanced level workshop. Dancers will be expected to be proficient in all their Lindy Hop fundamentals including all core 6-Count & 8-Count patterns, Swing Outs, Sugar Pushes and Lindy Circles. Students should also be proficient in all their Charleston fundamentals including solo, partnered and tandem Charleston.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
ABOUT JESSICA – If there’s swing music within earshot, that’s probably where you’ll find Jessica.
Jessica discovered Lindy Hop in 2009 and the boundless joy of jazz music and dancing gave her life a whole new focus. Now you can spot her out almost every night of the week, throwing down Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston and Solo Jazz, and seeking out local bands wherever she happens to be.
As a New York-based performer and choreographer, she’s kicked up her heels for sold out crowds at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing and the acclaimed Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, as well as performing for her fellow dancers locally and on the road.
As a teacher, she seeks to instill playfulness, confidence and quality of movement alongside an understanding of and sincere appreciation for the music and history of the swing dances. A constant student herself, she believes her commitment to learning is reflected in her teaching, just as her joy at being a part of these American dance traditions is reflected in her performance.
ABOUT BOBBY – Bobby White is known worldwide for his individual dance style, expressive teaching methods, and floppy hair.
He is a passionate dancer of Balboa, Lindy Hop, and Solo Jazz and has won many national and international championship placements in those dances, which he teaches all over the world. His welcoming nature and humorous personality are complemented by his passion for the dance and in-depth instruction.
He is dedicated to exploring the art form and history of swing dance, as shown through his well-read blog, Swungover, and the story-telling talks that he delivers at events. He is the emcee of Lindy Focus and other events.

We’ll provide some awesome mixed drinks, beer (including some of Adam’s very own creations), and snacks, and all we need is YOU! If blues isn’t your thing, we have plenty of space and seats to come chill with your friends and really take advantage of your time in Huntsville with FRIENDS. But it wouldn’t be a blues late night without some amazing blues music! The one and only Brother Ric Patton (https://www.alabamabluesman.com) will be playing with some very special guests to make an awesome delta blues combo, and Adam will be DJing the breaks with new music from his recent research trip to Clarksdale, MS. There will be a tip jar out and any tips you can spare for the musicians are not required to attend but will be much appreciated.
