*note: no 7 pm class on January 1*First Stops & Second Stops Routine
First Stops is a great classic group routine that was choreographed by Frankie Manning and performed by Whitey's Lindy Hoppers in competitions and on the social dance floor at the Savoy Ballroom. It's a good routine if you're interested in learning some choreography, but not quite ready for some of the bigger numbers. For the first two weeks (starting on the 8th!), Jean Gaston and Karolina Dróżdż will be teaching the choreography for First Stops. This is a partnered routine, but don't worry about bringing a dance partner! We will be rotating during the class. This class will build on both your solo and partnered dancing, and features Charleston, tandem Charleston, and solo jazz steps. Make sure you can come both weeks, so you can learn the whole piece. After that, we will move on to Second Stops!

|Tuesday in January at 8 pm|
*note: January 1 class is a FREE beginner swing class*Intro to Lindy Hop
Learn the foundations of the 8 count Lindy Hop, the high energy dance from Harlem that swept the nation and then the globe. Starting from the very beginning, breaking down the steps and rhythms in easy to understand ways, Keith and Sparrow will get ya on the dance floor and having fun in no time. No partner required and drop in friendly, though of course you'll learn the most if you start at the beginning of the month and stay till the end!Classes are held every Tuesday from 8-9pm at The BLOCK off biltmore. Each class costs $10, or $8 if you are a Swing Asheville member.
