TONIGHT at the Petersham Bowling Club

6.30pm Beginner lindy hop
This week we’re in week 5, we’ve pwnd side by side charleston, we are kings and queens of swing outs, etcetera etcetera etcetera. So let’s get into hand to hand charleston, let’s learn a nice meaty step (texas tommy perhaps?), let’s be more awesome.

7.30pm break

8.00pm Intermediate lindy hop
We have a little bit more of the ‘smaller’, more controlled lindy hop to explore, this time with a slightly different rhythm to the circle. A ‘rhythm circle’ if you will. And we still need to master standing still on the spot without rock stepping. It’s on.

Solo jazz tonight



TONIGHT at Solo Jazz in Enmore
7.30pm All-levels vintage jazz dance class

Tonight we go HARD on the fun, with a Big Apple extender class. Anyone can join in – even first time Big Applers. We take what we know about phrasing, about working with a partner, about charleston, about fun, and we extend it to the funnest dance of all time: the Big Apple. Not the routine, the called party game dance.

And because Australia’s Preeminent Big Apple Caller has lost her voice, Laura will be stepping in to bring the learns, assisted by Sam. The called Big Apple is FUN. It also features charleston, which is helpful if you’re working on charleston in beginner classes atm.

6.30pm Beginner lindy hop
We’re in week 4 for beginners, and this week we’ll nail down knitting charleston into our swing outs. Tip: circles vs linear mo
vement, and how a step-step becomes a rock step.

7.30pm break

8.00pm Intermediate lindy hop
We’ll continue with the sort of stuff we did last week – using a small, well-directed rock step to initiate momentum, closed position as a super-powered connection, and simple, beautiful combinations of 6 and 8 counts. Also, standing still on the spot.

It is very on.

TONIGHT at solo jazz


TONIGHT at solo jazz:
7.30pm All-levels vintage jazz dance class
Oh YES, we are back for more funs. This week we use a similar class structure as last week (ie social solo dancing, with a focus on using a small vocabulary of steps to make super-interesting and creative dancing), but we use just one basic step: CHARLESTON.
Yes, if you’re doing lindy hop on Wednesdays, tonight’s solo class is PERFECT for helping you get a handle on charleston before you touch another human!
