WORKSHOPS (A) | FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 6:30-9:30pm Swing Crash Course (Beginners) & Solo Jazz Steps (All Levels) – **Groupon redeemable**
Swing Dance Crash Course (Intro to 6-count Swing) 6:30-8:00pm
This is your chance to learn the fundamentals of swing dancing! Our goal in this class is to teach you the basic figures and get you dancing as soon as possible. After this workshop, you will be ready to go out and dance the night away, and even end with a dip! We’ll also provide you with resources to continue learning and go out dancing in New York City!
Solo Jazz Steps (All Levels) 8:00-9:30pm
Back by popular demand, we look forward to hosting this solo jazz moves workshop! Join us by learning a boatload of jazz steps and improving your solo dancing. We’ll start from scratch with each new solo jazz move—from the popular Susie Q’s and Shorty George’s to the slightly less heard of buzzards and trenches—so Beginners to Advanced dancers welcome!
WORKSHOPS (B) | FRIDAY, JANUARY 16, 6:30-9:30pm Intermediate and Advanced Workshops
Intermediate Swing Dance Workshop: “Pull out all the stops!” 6:30-8:00pm
Add more six-count figures to your arsenal of steps while learning connection concepts to help improve your leading and following! This workshop will teach you important technical lessons through new and interesting variations. Students should know the basics of six-count swing. Class taught by Samantha and Brian.
Advanced Swing Dance Workshop with Guest Instructor Laura Jeffers: “Classic Frankie Moves” – 8:00-9:30pm
Previous experience with the Swingout is required for this workshop and you should feel comfortable with most six-count material. Laura Jeffers is our Lindy Hop teacher and mentor, a Lindy Hop all-star and legend, and director of the Big Apple Lindy Hoppers, founded by Frankie Manning. In this workshop, you will learn moves Laura learned from Frankie Manning himself! Come to this workshop to meet Laura, who will continue to host our monthly workshops in our stead as we are away until September 2015. Laura Jeffers made us the Lindy Hoppers we are today and we are so excited to share her with you! Samantha will also be instructing with her, and Brian will be sticking around for the duration of the class to balance out the lead to follow ratio!
