  • Mission #2: Provide a wealth of "a-ha" takeaways for you for your dancing!

  • Mission #3: A rollicking entertaining good time while being active and learning in an immersed workshop setting!

  • Mission #4: As a more immediate goal: better technique, some dynamic moves, and a peek into our minds about how we social dance!

The Material

(subject to change)

  • Class #1: Lindy To The Max (2pm to 2:50pm)
    To The Max, as in let's get to those endpoints, be it swingout technique or spin technique, linear or rotational. A great foundation for the budding Lindy Hopper

  • Class #2: Choose Your Own Adventure (3pm to 3:50pm)
    One of our favorite workshop classes is BACK! Those linear and spin exercises in Class 1 will come in handy as we teach you a set of dynamic moves from the same lead-in with multiple exits. You'll learn lead/follow, improve your technique, and learn some killer dynamic moves!

  • Class #3: Get Into The Groove (4:00pm to 4:50pm)
    Sure, you've been doing a great job learning fundamentals in classes. But it still looks a bit different than what you see on the dance floor. We designed this class to help bridge that ggap! We will teach you a "mini choreography" based on our own social dancing! Besides learning some nifty moves and styling, you will gain insight into how we engage in social dancing and how we interpret music.
