Wednesdays, 7-8:30pm at The Ukrainian Hall, 154 East 10th Avenue. $19 drop-in / $80 for a 5x Lab card.
The Lab is the arena for play and exploration in your dancing. Once you’ve mastered the material in the Intermediate classes, and you’ve been social dancing long enough to know that there’s more out there to discover, you’re ready for the The Lab. This is where we experiment with techniques, patterns, and topics that don’t fit neatly into any series. This arena is for you to develop and grow! Tell us us what you’d like to explore: we’ll help you do it. Join the facebook group for discussion and topic requests. Past topics include:
- styling variations
- partner Charleston
- solo vintage Jazz
- challenging moves
- fast dancing (or slow dancing… in many ways more challenging!)
- other dance styles (with guest instructors, as appropriate)
- vintage jazz routines (such as The Big Apple and Tranky Doo)
- air steps
- role reversal – leading for follows and following for leads
- slides in your Lindy hop
(Drop in and by request topics for advanced–intermediate lindy hoppers)
Upcoming Lab topics:
August 2 – Caribbean shim sham
Lab topics are always open for discussion … send your requests! Join and comment in the Lab facebook group.
