Featured topic for this session: Styling!

During this session we’ll add some extra attention to Lindy Hop styling, including those fancy swivels you see follows do. Why does Lindy Hop look different than other kinds of Swing? It’s not just about WHAT you do, but also about HOW you do it.

Featured topic for this session: Mixing 6s, 8s & Other Rhythm Patterns!

Included this session, we’ll explore how to take a typically 8 count move and expand or contract into a different rhythm, how to mix varying rhythm patterns, plus taking the focus from the counts and putting it on flow and making smooth transitions. For brand new dancers and continuing students.

7:30–8:00pm Stay after class for practice!
8:00–9:00pm Dancing with Musicality & Flow

The music guides our dancing with structure, style, and hopefully inspiration. It helps transform just doing steps with “the way that you do it”. There are many aspects to connecting to the music, and this class will focus on mood, feel, and how we’re inspired. For intermediate to advanced Lindy Hoppers.
