August Classes
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 &
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.
