1. THIS WEEK: August 5th - Live Music with the Solomon Douglas Quartet! New Classes!

Band Night - August 5th!
This Wednesday, we are happy to bring you the Solomon Douglas Quartet! This band plays a mixture of musical styles including blues, old-school swing, and groovy mainstream swinging jazz with tinges of bop and soul-jazz. Solomon is a great dancer, too! Please invite your family and friends and join us for a fun-filled night of LIVE music!

August Classes - Week 1 on August 5th!
Level 1 - 20's Charleston & Beyond - with Trevor & Audrey
8:00 - 9:00pm
Flappers and Speakeasies and the roaring 20's! This bygone era is characterized by a style of swing dancing that is still a part of Lindy Hop today. Sometimes called face-to-face Charleston, this style of dance is done in closed position and roots the Lindy Hop in a never-ending pulse. From this position, the dancers started to stretch away from each other and Lindy Hop was born! In this class we will show you how 20's Charleston and Lindy Hop link up as well as give you some classic jazz movement like "Shorty George" and "Boogie Back". Don't be a "Palooka"; Take this class and you'll be the "Bee's Knees"!

Level 2 - "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon" Means That You're Grand! - with Trevor & Audrey
7:00 - 8:00pm
Charleston, Lindy Turns, Dips, Jumps, Connection Exercises, Musicality - It's all part of Lindy Hop and it's time to put it all together. If you feel as though you have learned all the basics in the beginning class, here is where you will refine what you have learned and synthesize it into a fun routine to remember all the pieces of the puzzle and grab hold of some new and fun ways to transition between them. Though it is a routine, lead and follow will be constantly emphasized and performance is not a requirement.
