Oct 7: Really drawing close now! Our Performance Ball! Will you be struttin' your stuff?https://t.co/5ngZOKWnFm https://t.co/OuTpMXHP3z
Swing Patrol’s newest venue features Lindy Hop and TWO levels of Collegiate Shag. This is our first weekly Collegiate Shag venue, which has us all very excited!
6:30pm: Level 1 Lindy Hop
Drop in any week, all welcome! We’ll get you started on all the key elements of the swing dance family, including Charleston, 6-beat and 8-beat, as well as figuring out how dancing with a partner works. This class is perfect for anyone who hasn’t danced swing before, or is just looking to work on their basic technique. We start from scratch each week, but guarantee that you’ll be able to dance to a whole song by the end of the class! No need to worry about partners as we’ll be rotating throughout the class – just bring all your friends for a fun, social night with great music.
7:30pm: Level 1 Collegiate Shag
Drop in any week, all welcome! This class is all about learning the fundamentals of the very fun Collegiate Shag. The dance is known for its hopping basic step and high energy footwork that separates it from other forms of swing and other dances that use the ‘Shag’ name, such as Carolina Shag or St. Louis Shag. No need to worry about partners as we’ll be rotating throughout the class. For anyone and everyone, you can do this one straight after the Lindy Hop class to double your dance skills.
