THE SWINGS, Beginning - 3 different East Coast Swing rhythms will be explored in this session; Single,Double(Jitterbug),Triple time to widen your repertoire. We will emphasize DOUBLE rhythm(a most popular rhythm for today’s high energy music), adding to your Swing skills- making the class appropriate for BEGINNERS and INTERMEDIATE dancers. Some examples of music to by: Single rhythm: Feel It Still(Portugal the Man), lots of Chuck Berry, Double: Wham(George Michael), Why Don’t we just dance(Josh Turner), Fine Young Cannibals/Good Thing Triple: Pride&Joy(Stevie Ray Vaughn), Exes and Ohs/Ellie King.

QUICKSTEP - Love to dance to fast Swing music?! Take that same rhythm and energy and move it around the Dance floor in Quickstep. We’ll continue to offer ways to slow it down throughout a song by using ONESTEP rhythm and patterns. Surprisingly, Quickstep can be danced to a variety of musical styles from artists such as Fred Astaire, KT Tunstall(Suddenly I See), Billy Idol, Herb Alpert, Caro Emerald, and more. Steps taught in Beginning were Quarter Turns to Right & Left, Progressive Chasse, Forward Lock Step, Charleston Points. Projected syllabus for this session includes Natural Turn, Natural Pivot Turn, Chasse Reverse Turn, and more.

WALTZ - This is a SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY to integrate several high profile waltz moves into a CHOREOGRAPHED ROUTINE. The 6 week session is for experienced waltz dancers. We will develop a routine that will be performed at future dance events. The skills developed in partnering with a group of dancers and possibly trading partners during the performance of the routine. The steps will be advanced enough to be challenging but with emphasis on coordination of group moves which create an overall appearance of COHESIVENESS AND BEAUTY. You will leave with a coordinated pattern of moves that can be danced during any waltz song at any dance event. This class may continue on into MARCH/APRIL session. RSVP to join Class. Class limited to 18 people.
