8:15pm Progressive Lindy Hop Classes – Week 2
February 10 @ 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm
An event every month that begins at 8:15 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until November 30, 2020
Lindy is a fast, exciting dance that goes to classic swing and big band music like Frank Sinatra, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Ella Fitzgerald.
If you dance East Coast Swing, Lindy will give your dancing a whole new world of possibilities! Lindy can easily be danced in combination with your East Coast steps to give you more variety, character, and style! Jump, Jive, & Wail!
The Dance Shack offers two levels for this fun, exciting dance that’s growing rapidly in Jacksonville! Stick around after class for some open dancing and practice!
Beginner (Level 1) – Each week will build on the previous week, introducing new moves and skills along the way. In this level, you should focus on timing and developing your basic lead/follow skills.
Intermediate (Level 2) – You should be comfortable with using 6 and 8-count patterns in time with the music. This level will rotate through various categories of moves each month from the ever-popular Charleston to swingout variations, mixing 6 and 8 count, and variations on the steps covered in Level 1. You will begin to focus on the quality of your movement as well. You should be familiar with all of these before moving to the next level.
In these progressive workshops you’ll build on what you learned each week throughout the month, so please try to attend all classes!
Each class is only $10 each for Shackers ($15 for Non-Members). No partner or experience is needed, so come out and have some fun!
