-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** 3RD WEEK! ***
Kim & Gilles are teaching the California routine this month. You may not get the whole thing if you drop in this week and next but you can still pick up some great moves from the last part of the routine!

Remember, there are FIVE weeks in March! Kim and Gilles will also be giving a special workshop/stand alone class at the end of the month. The topic is described here after the series descriptions! Come drop in at the end of the month!

Level 1 - Lindy Hop: From Swing Out to Charleston and Back
8:15 - 9:15pm

The Charleston is one of the bases of the Lindy Hop. It began as its own dance in the 1920s and was adopted by Lindy Hoppers in the 1930s. Kim and Gilles will teach the basics of the Charleston and how it fits within the Lindy Hop. This will cover technique, rhythm, and partner connection in the Swing Out, 20s Charleston, and 30s Charleston.

Level 2 - Lindy Hop: The California Routine
7:15 - 8:15pm

The California Routine, preserved in the film Hellzapoppin’ is an essential part of Lindy Hop history and a great way to learn about partnered Lindy Hop routines. Kim and Gilles will teach a popular version of this choreography usually performed simultaneously by a group of dancers.

*** 5TH WEEK SPECIAL! ***
Level 1 - Lindy Hop: Spice Up your 20s Charleston
8:15 - 9:15pm

The Charleston was popularized in the 1920s and became one of the major roots of the Lindy Hop. Kim and Gilles will start with the basic steps, and will show you how to spice them up with exciting variations, beyond what you learnt if you took this month's series.

*** 5TH WEEK SPECIAL! ***
Level 2 - Lindy Hop: Throws and Lifts from in the California routine
7:15 - 8:15pm

The Lindy Hop is well-known for its musical integration of throws and lifts with dancing. Kim and Gilles will teach the technique and connection necessary to safely do throws and lifts found in the California Routine. You don’t need to know the routine, but it will perfectly complement those who have learned it. You can choose to bring your own partner if you feel you’ll be more comfortable.
