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.
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.
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!
8.30pm Solo Jazz guided practice
Some peeps are getting ready for the solo jazz comp at SLX 2015 – Sydney Lindy Exchange, so that means practicing jam style dancing: 2 phrases to show off. Everyone is welcome to join in, even if you’re not planning on competing.
When: 7.30pm tonight (Mondays)
Where: St Luke’s Anglican Church Hall, 11 Stanmore Rd, Enmore
Cost: $15 for the class, free practice What is solo jazz?
Due to popular demand (or lack of substantial opposition), we are cancelling the intermediate class on Wednesday 16th September and having a party instead. Discover social dancing for the first time! Take the cover off the pool table! Drink a beer!
The goal here is a friendly chance to give social dancing a go with a few friendly peeps.
6.30pm week 6 of the beginner course (we’ll be revising things and looking at social dancing) 730pm It is on.
It’ll cost you $5 if you don’t take the class (so we can pay the bills), and it’s free if you do take the class.
