Taster description:
Variations and styling your dance with Kyle and Stina
This taster will be about creating fun variations and styling in your dance. We will do variations in moves like starburst, close embrace, lollies and swiwels.
We will focus a lot in what working as a team is and having a conversation on the dancefloor. How it is to not plan your dancing but instead listening and creating together. This is a taster for both roles and we will adapt the class after the people in it. All levels are very much welcome.

What is Fast Friday?

Fast Fridays are monthly combination of LFT (Ledarledd fri träning or Free Training with teachers) from 18:00-20:00 and SAW (Swing After Work - social dance) from 20:00 until late. The LFT will have faster tempo oriented tasters, and music catering to all the various styles of faster dancing. The social dancing will of course have slower tempos for everyone to chill out with, just less than your typical social lindy hop dance. So everyone has a chance to catch their breath and be ready for the next faster swinging tune!

Music and tasters will be a wide variety of music catering to rhythms found in Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Lindy Hop, Charleston and many more. Instructors at the LFT will be ready to assist anyone practicing their faster dancing in any of the dances.

Kyle will bring beer, and hopes some people will help him drink it, as last time he got too drunk.
