Charleston with Dave and Jenny

7-7:15 PM- Registration and Warmup

7:15–8:15 PM:  Level 1 Charleston Part 3 of 3 - Starting from the beginning, you'll learn basic 20s and 30s Charleston footwork, side-by-side partnered Charleston, hand-to-hand Charleston, face-to-face 20s Charleston, and a variety of entrances from and exits into Lindy and/or six-count. You'll want to have some dance experience prior to taking this class, but it won't depend on knowledge of Lindy.

8:15-8:30 PM- Registration, Warmup, Level Test (as needed)

8:30-9:30 PM: Level 2 Charleston Part 3 of 3 - In this class, you'll build upon your Charleston skills by adding more turns and stylings, as well as integrating it more seamlessly into your Lindy Hop. Each week will focus on a different aspect of Intermediate Charleston - tandem, jump charleston, etc -- all of the odds and ends that we don't often touch on. Pre-requisites: Comfort in basic 20s and 30s Charleston as well as the Lindy Swingout and Circle.

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

$25 full month (3 series classes PLUS October 2nd solo Charleston class) $20 - partial month series (3 series classes), $10 - drop in single class, $15 - drop in both night's classes

Check them out!  http://www.joesmithandthespicypickles.com/

7:30 Lesson - Level 2 Lindy Hop - Ambidance!* Part 2 with Daniel and Tory

8:30 Lesson - Basic 6-Count Swing

*About Level 2 Lindy Hop - Ambidance: More and more dancers are learning both roles in Lindy Hop.  We’ll work on transitioning between roles mid-dance, stealing the lead, etc.  Bonus! Some people also find that learning the lead can actually improve their following and vice-versa.  Prerequisite: comfort in either role in Lindy Hop.  Some knowledge of the other is a bonus!

CCSwing Office Hours/Open Practice

Due to the holiday, we're pushing our September Series back one week.  Join us tonight for a casual, open drop in session for practice, critique and/or instruction. If you’ve got some questions you need answered, want some direct feedback on technique or just want a nice dance floor and some good music to work out some things on your own, drop on by.  

We’ll have some of our teachers on hand, but there will be no formal agenda or lesson plan. Shoot us a message if there's something specfic you'd like to work on and we'll make sure we cover it.

We'll have the space from 7-9 and will be there if you are.

Pay what you choose - feel free to toss some dollars in the teacher tip jar if you want.

9-12 - Open Social Dancing with DJ TBD $5 or $3 with valid student/military ID

 

*About Frankie 8s - Level up your Lindy Hop in this two part series with this sequence of Lindy moves, often taught by Frankie Manning.  It’s great for building on traveling, cross-hand turns, and rhythm.  This sequence of moves covers four 8-counts and utilizes Lindy/8-count footwork, but puts less focus on the swingout. Prerequisites: This is a more intermediate level class, so you must be very comfortable in 8-count footwork and able to perform a swing out from open, from closed, and a Lindy circle.
