October 2014 Classes

Mondays (October 6, 13, 20, & 27) with Adam & Abigail

Intermediate Balboa 7:00-8:00

Rockin’ in Rhythm! In this class we will play with concepts centering on directing and redirecting spin momentum, follower and leader responsiveness, and moving between ad-libs and bal-swing. No partner necessary, but bringing friends is encouraged!

Balboa Fundamental Figures 2 8:00-9:00

Welcome to the world of lollies, turning technique, and stylish footwork! Whether you are new to Balboa or have some basics under your feet, Adam and Abigail will help you build your fundamentals with confidence.  No partner necessary, but bringing friends is encouraged!

Wednesdays (October 8, 15, 22, & 29) with Lindsay & Skyler

Lindy 1 (Charleston to Lindy) – 7:00-8:00

This class will start with examining Lindy’s roots in Charleston.  We begin with several variations on 8-count footwork and building the framework that allows you to start creating your own variations in Lindy.  This is also a great class for building speedy footwork and starting to dance at faster Lindy tempos.  We are also field-testing a flipped classroom model for this, meaning we will give you video of the week’s lesson ahead of time, so you will be able to see the new material and play with it before you show up to class.  If you are interesting in this class, you will find the video for week one at https://vimeo.com/61326221

Solo Charleston – 8:00-9:00

What to do when the music’s hot and there’s no partner in sight?  Or when that cool solo jazz/charleston circle forms and you want to join in?  This class will help all your dreams of Solo Charleston glory come true.  Learn not just basics and some flashy moves, but also how to think and experiment in ways that will let you make up your own fancy footworks.

Thursdays with Jason & Skyler

Beginner/Intermediate Lindy (How to Dance Better) – 6:30-7:30

This is a drop-in class before the dance.  Whatever your level, show up, and based on the group present, we will devise a lesson for the day that makes sure everybody gets something out of it.  Feel free to bring requests, questions, or ideas you want to work on as well.  Think of this as a small group private lesson.

The Lindy Lab teaches from a unique “movement based” approach to swing dancing. Rather than focusing on learning moves, we aim to teach you first about the components that make those moves. By learning a few simple building blocks, you can learn a variety of dance concepts faster while also developing the ability to create your own moves and personal style. We feel that most people get into swing dancing for reasons of fun and we make sure that our classes help you to continue growing your skills without losing that fun aspect.
