Monday Lessons! Lindy Hop 101 and Lindy Hop 201

Here's what you need to know:
7-7:15PM: Registration and Warmup

7:15-8:15PM: Lindy 101 w/BJ and Lyndsey part 4 - This is a 4 part progressive series where you’ll learn 8-count footwork, frame, connection, swingout & circle. Perfect for those who are brand new to Lindy Hop as well as veterans working on their foundations. No new drop ins after week 1 unless you’ve got some Lindy or partner dance experience.

8:15-8:25PM - Registration/Break/Warmup/Level Test

8:25–9:25PM: Lindy 201 w/BJ and Lyndsey part 4 - These classes will seek to elevate your dancing to give you a musicality and flow. We’ll challenge what you already know, maybe break some rules, and push your dancing out of the classroom and on to the social floor. You’ll need to have a fair amount of Lindy experience under your belt (a deep comfort in your Lindy basics, that is) to take this class.

$25 for 4-class series ($20 with student/military ID) $8 drop-in

**Note: All mid-month drop ins will be assessed by teachers and staff before accepted.**


Remember: No street shoes on the dance floor! Bring a water bottle, as the only water source is the bathroom sink. There is some AC in the building, but it's still likely to get a little warm once you get moving -- bring a change of shirt or towel if you think you'll need it!

Monday Lessons! Solo Jazz 201: Tranky Doo!

  
That's right, only one class in December since it's a short month.

Here's what you need to know:
7:00-7:15 - Registration& Warmup 
7:15-8:30 - Tranky Doo with Tory and Keito

If you’re ready to level up your solo dancing, this class will get you into some more intermediate jazz moves so you’ll be ready to conquer the Tranky Doo, a fun piece of choreography from the 40s still performed today. 

It’s on the tricky side, so some experience in choreography (ie. Shim Sham) is helpful, though not required. Since these classes will run a little longer in length, if we get through with time to spare, we'll tack on the Swing & Soul line dance in week 3 — all are welcome to join in for that one.

No drop-ins if you miss the first week, unless you have already learned this choreography and are refreshing.

$20 for 3 class series (20% series discount with valid student or military ID) $8 drop in 

Remember: No street shoes on the dance floor! Bring a water bottle, as the only water source is the bathroom sink. It's likely to get a little warm once you get moving -- bring a change of shirt or towel if you think you'll need it!

Come on out at 7:00 and learn (or refresh) the classic "Thriller" choreography with Tory. 

We'll have a costume contest, as always, and will be awarding prizes around 9:45/10 so make sure you're there early so our guest judges can check out your Halloween finery!

No basic swing lesson tonight.
