Elective classes

Slides In Shag

Out of shag styling ideas? In this class you will enrich your basic steps with slides in different rhythmic patterns, that you can both lead or use independently from each other. Also, you will learn some new moves and their eye-catching variations.

Level: Intermediate and higher.

Let’s Play with the Dynamics

There is a point in your dancing education when learning a new shape won’t really help you become a better dancer. Sometimes what you need is a general idea applicable to all of your dancing.

We will take some popular moves and shapes and we will change their dynamics to make them more energetic while still being smooth, leadable and fun.

We will start easy: working independently on the shapes and footwork, letting them evolve to finally mix them all together and see how exciting the result is!

After the class you will have an idea (a useful tool) how to work with the dynamics of your dance. Hopefully you will use it to create something unexpected and yet unknown in the shag world.

Level: Intermediate-advanced and advanced dancers.

LA Style Lindy Hop

Smooth Lindy (also known as Hollywood Style) is a style variation of the Lindy Hop invented by Dean Collins, who danced at the Savoy Ballroom as a teenager. He moved out West and brought his own style of Lindy to Los Angeles. He taught many dancers and actors that were depicted in many of the movies in Hollywood.

Level:
You have been dancing a while and you are pretty good on the social floor. You might have zero, a little, or a lot of exposure and experience with LA Style Lindy but you aren’t that good and you want to get better. This track will nail down what it is to be an LA Style dancer. Things you should know and things you should be good at.

How to steal one’s partner while keeping the dance energy flow? How to change partners in an interesting way to impress audience during the show or just to have fun with friends during the party? Join this class to bring more fun to your dancing and boost the creativity of your routines!

Level: Intermediate and up
