Wow, did April fly by quickly! At least the trees are finally budding, the temperatures are rising and it actually feels like spring!
Sunday Lindy Hop/Swing Classes This Week!
Our new 6 week session starts this Sunday, May 1 at the Newton Lower Falls Community Center in Newton. This will be our last session until after Beantown Camp! Here is what’s coming up:
- Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop - This class is for both brand new dancers and those with some experience who would like to build a stronger foundation and gain more confidence on the dance floor. Six count basics are covered along with a different selection of fun steps each session. There are 7 different sessions at this level, which can be taken in any order, providing the opportunity to develop a good base for social dancing while continuing to learn new steps. If you have any friends who have been wanting to get started, please send them along!
- Lindy Hop Level 2 - This class is aimed at intermediate level Swing dancers who can already comfortably social dance any style of triple-step Swing. It is not necessary to already know Lindy Hop. The class focuses on core moves, including a mix of 8 and 6 count basics, emphasizing technique and lead-follow connection. There are 8 different sessions at this level which continually change over time and can be taken in any order. Each session includes a mix of classic Charleston moves and newer variations.
- Partner Charleston - After requests for MORE with our last partner Charleston class, we added a new one! This one concentrates on tandem and side-by-side variations to add to your Lindy Hop repertoire. Charleston is fun, it’s flashy, and we’ll be focusing on execution and pizazz to make it shine! This class will be for intermediate to advanced Lindy Hoppers.
If you are planning to attend any of these classes and have not already done so, it would be helpful if you would submit an on-line registration to speed up check-in. You can pay in advance by credit card through PayPal or at the first class by check or cash. Thanks!
Looking forward to the start of our new class session this weekend!
