Saturday, 24 Nov, 11.30am - 3.30pm
Workshop - Lindy hop for improvers/intermediates
The Bedford, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham, London SW12 9HD : www.thebedford.co.uk
Consolidate your basics and expand your repertoire! Advance booking required.
You may take the morning session, the afternoon session or both.
Teachers: Martin and Ruth
11.30am - 1.00pm Improve/enhance your Swing Out
First and foremost this will be about improving your confidence with the essential basics of Swing Out, Lindy Turn and Circle. We will add some simple variations but mostly concentrate on really mastering these - and associated - moves. You need to know what they are but might not feel comfortable leading or following them on the social dance floor.
1.00pm - 2.00pm Lunch break
We break for lunch at 1pm. Lunch is not included but most people eat downstairs in the venue or there are plenty of alternatives in the local area.
2.00pm - 3.30pm Lindy hop Charleston variations
Here we will cover lots of fun Lindy hop Charleston steps - all essential knowledge! Again we will spend time really working on technique and style - and how to link moves and mini-routines together.
You've done some 6-count and are reasonably comfortable with that. You've learnt a bit of 8-count (Swing out etc) and some partnered Lindy hop Charleston but struggle to incorporate it - or just want to build your confidence and/or improve your technique.
