Noon to 1pm - Follower Foundation & Flair (Emerging to experienced dancers)
What is the difference between an exceptional follow and an average one? How do you find that extra sparkle within yourself? In this class we will begin the process of learning how to develop you unique follower voice, while building up the skills needed to excel on the social dance floor. ----- Leads ---- we need you in this class. Not only will you provide the foundation needed to execute these concepts, but many of the concepts that make a great follow also apply to greatness in a lead. We will also talk about places within this dance where the roles of the dancers switch, turning the lead in to a follow for a time. Taught by Maureen and Kenny
1:15pm to 2:15pm - Bal-Swing (New to developing dancers)
Developed in the 1930’s in southern California alongside and influenced by dances such as Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, and Fox Trot, Bal-swing was the So-Cal dancers response to big band swing music. It is a perfect dance for any tempo of music, and its glidey movement is perfect for those who want a slightly flashy dance that is easy on the body and quick to learn. Join us to learn the basic rhythms and combinations of this dance. Taught by Maureen and Kenny.
