Beantown is known for excellent instructors and classes, and this year has all that! Besides 6 levels of Lindy Hop tracks, each day brings a wide array of additional classes to choose from.
Blues with Dan Repsch & Jenny Sowden
Blues is not new to Beantown, however, what is new is that Dan & Jenny, two of the most popular Blues instructors, will be doing all 6 of the Blues Mini-Track classes. In addition, Dan will be hosting a Swing & Blues dance during the weekend.
Hip Hop Routine with Eric Fenn
Eric is an outstanding instructor, encouraging and welcoming to all levels of experience. His style is more Urban Contemporary and his routines are challenging, musical and a lot of fun. If you have never taken a class with Eric, be sure you do! Besides the routine Mini-Track, he will be teaching several movement classes.
Jazz Routine with Jon Tigert
Jon has been delighting and entertaining us with his dancing for the last few years and this year he is excited to be teaching the Jazz Routine Mini-Track. This promises to be a very fun class as well as an excellent way to work on musicality, rhythm and individual dance skills.
Balboa with Sylvia, Javier, Bobby, Kate & Heather
The Balboa Mini-Track has 6 progressive classes starting with the basics. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from some of the top Balboa instructors. It is not only a great opportunity to build a repertoire, but also to work on styling, technique and the essence of Balboa.
