June 2, 9, 16,23, 30 at 7:30 pmReady, Set, LINDY! Beginning Lindy Hop

Learn one of the most common footwork patterns in Lindy Hop and several different moves that it can be applied to! Whether you have never taken a dance class in your life, whether you’ve taken a 6-count or Charleston series already, whether you’ve taken 8-count before but would like to continue brushing up on your technique… you will get something out of this class. No partner is necessary as we will rotate in class! $10 per class or $40 for all 5 weeks if you pay in full the first night of the series.

June 2, 9, 16,23, 30 at 7:30 pm, downstairs Road to Blue Ridge Bal: Putting It All Together In this third step on the road to Blue Ridge Bal, we are going to take everything we learned in the first two months (and more!) and teach a short choreographed routine to "Sweet Georgia Brown." Ideally, learning this routine will help to solidify the skills we have learned thus far, and build confidence in both leads and follows! Participants should have attended at least 50% of the last two months of classes OR be familiar with the following: basic, paddles, scoots, lollies, tossouts, swivel breaks, and out-and-ins. Once participants learn the choreography, there will be an opportunity to perform it at the Thursday night dance before Blue Ridge Bal and at the Sunday afternoon flashmob during the event! Students will need to choose a partner if they wish to perform, and attend at least 3 out of the 5 classes. This is not a drop in class. If you are interested in attending, but will miss more than one class through the month, please PM Franklin or Melissa.
