In this series, we will work on 6 count footwork with triple steps. 6 count footwork is an integral part of Lindy Hop (the original form of swing dancing). It involves shuffling your feet, moving and turning to the swinging rhythm of big band music. We will meet every Monday for 4 weeks from 7:00 - 8:00pm starting March 26. Drop-ins are welcome for the 1st and 2nd week of the series.
We will rotate partners frequently during the lesson so you will instantly make lots of new friends!! You will have a chance to mingle and dance with each other and try out all the new moves to authentic 30's and 40's jazz music. Although drop ins are welcome, we highly recommend to attend all 4 classes to learn various steps of swing dancing so that you will be comfortable on the social dance floor. Besides, there is a big discount by signing up for the whole month so please take advantage of it!
Classes are taught by Akemi Kinukawa and Lewi Gilamichael, very experienced and friendly instructors of Swing Dance Astoria (www.Facebook.com/swingdanceastoria).
Space is limited and only advance purchase will guarantee your spot! Looking forward to dancing with you!
