SATURDAY

10.00-12.30: Foundations of Jazz – solo (2h30min)
From walking to flashy moves, this class will show you how to build up a jazz step through improvisation. By the end of this class, you’ll be comfortable playing with several classic jazz steps by using isolations, rhythms, and accents. The class ideas are simple to understand, and will be as challenging as you make them.
 
12.30-13.30: Lunch break (60 min)
 
13.30-16.00: Replacing Rhythms – Partnered Lindy Hop (2h30min)
In this class, we’ll train our rhythm first as an individual dancer, and then we’ll see how it works within the partnership. The class will get more challenging as it progresses and participants can choose what to focus on, so they work where they are comfortable.
 
SUNDAY
 
11.00-13.30: Foundations of Charleston – solo (2h30min)
All things that kick!! Let’s make every kick count. This class will start with a warm up, then you will learn a routine to practice the six different kicks we use in Charleston, and then we’ll add some speed. This class will be 4 parts energetic, 2 parts technical, and 4 parts fun!!
 
13.30-14.30: Lunch break (60 min)
 
14.30-17.00: Phrasing – Partnered Lindy Hop (2h30min)
Whether you’re competing, going into a gym, or creating a social dance, the music is the roadmap. In this class, we will focus on phrasing our ideas, creating phrase enders, and finding inspiration from other.
