Workshop Descriptions

Intermediate

The Intermediate track is geared towards dancers with enough class-setting and social dance experience that:

  •     mixing 6-count and 8-count is not a challenge.
  •     mid-tempo to moderately fast-tempo songs are comfortable and exciting to dance to.
  •     when things go a little awry on the social floor, you adapt, keep dancing, and don’t have to stop and restart.
  •     styling variations/recovering from “mistakes” are a part of every dance.
Brittany & Dargoff’s workshops

Partnered Jazz Moves – Individual styling and jazz moves into our partner dancing still keeping the flow of the moves.

Musicality – The music is what makes us dance! We’ll listen to the music from several perspectives and make our bodies and music become one!

 

 

Advanced

The Advanced track is geared towards dancers who are avid and experienced Lindy Hoppers with vast and varied social dance experience in multiple scenes in multiple geographic locations. They are comfortable dancing to any tempo music, as well as a variety of styles of Jazz, have at least a little experience in other types of social dance (e.g., Tango, Balboa, Latin dances), are completely unconcerned with what “count” a move is, are keenly in tune to the musicality of their movement and patterns, and recognize that “styling” is what is happening when they enter the social floor and dance.

Britanny & Dargoff’s workshops

BrittGoff Originals: We love lindy hop.  Here we’ll show you some moves we may have invented(but in reality, somebody at the Savoy probably did these decades ago.

Creativity: Break out of that dance funk or just expand your horizons by forgetting your inhibitions.  In this class, every idea is a good idea.

Tricky Moves: Title says it all. If you’re going to do something tricky, make sure it’s perfect.

Rhythm class – This is what it’s all about, we’ll play around with rhythms incorporating them into our dancing.

Moves You Didn’t Know You Knew – Here we’ll use what you already know to create new dynamic moves and patterns.
