This is a 5 week open level course that covers all the elements (i.e. 6 count basics, 8 count basics, Charleston, Solo Jazz) of Lindy Hop. We may throw in some Balboa too! We will go over the basics of each element but will keep it challenging with exciting variations for more advanced dancers. We will work on mixing these elements together so that we can have an awesome time on the dance floor.
We will meet every Monday for 5 weeks from 7:00 - 8:00pm starting NOV 5 (but skipping MONDAY, NOV 19). Drop-ins are welcome for the 1st and 2nd week of the series or if you've attended the 1st or 2nd week or have some past dance experience.
We will rotate partners frequently during the lesson so you will instantly make lots of new friends!! You will have a chance to mingle and dance with each other and try out all the new moves to authentic 30's and 40's jazz music.
Although drop ins are welcome, we highly recommend to attend all 5 classes to learn various steps of swing dancing so that you will be comfortable on the social dance floor. Besides, there is a big discount by signing up for the whole month so please take advantage of it!
Classes are taught by Akemi Kinukawa and Lewi Gilamichael, very experienced and friendly instructors of Swing Dance Astoria (www.Facebook.com/swingdanceastoria).
Space is limited and only advance purchase will guarantee your spot! Looking forward to dancing with you!
