Zydeco Dance Workshop @ Tio Leo's this Saturday 2-4pm

Zydeco Workshop this Saturday.... I had sent this out in the local email lists but feared there maybe people who are not on the mail list who didn't get the info... so just a fyi....

You don't need to RSVP ....

What: Zydeco Dance Workshop @ Tio Leo's Saturday 2-4pm

When: August 29,[masked]:00-4:00PM

Where:
Tio Leo's Mexican Restaurant
5302 Napa St.
San Diego, CA 92110
[masked]

Material Covered: Intermediate & Advanced Zydeco moves that we don't have time to cover on Tuesday's at Tio Leo's. The material we will cover is not hard, it just takes a little more time to breakdown and practice the moves over and over again as we build the muscle memory.

Moves Covered:
- The Floating Slide
- Houston Style Slide with Lifts
- Alternative Syncopated Slide Footwork
- Lifts on 2 or 6
- Kick Lifts
- Open Position Butterfrogs
- Rotating 360's
- Floating Slide Inside Taps
- Cross Hand 1/2 Turns with Swing to Zydeco Footwork

Video Clips:

Note: The advanced material isn't hard as it will just feel a little different. If you have the basic Zydeco step down well you should not have any troubles picking up the advanced moves.

This information also went out to the local Cajun/Zydeco mail lists but just in case there is someone on this list that is not on the local mail list, I wanted to send this out...

Video: We will also review video from some hot dancers and discuss their styles and how this relates to our learning of the moves.
Cost: $20 (helps to rent the floor space from Tio Leo's)

While none of can look quite as cool as these dancers, it's the side to side motion that we will be breaking down and getting comfortable with this style (but much slower).

RSVP - Not required but requested to [address removed] or[masked] in case of any changes.
