Lab sessions are paused until further notice.
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 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: Choreography; Frankie's favourite moves; follows' focus; vintage blues and slow dancing; fast dancing; flashy figures; fancy footwork; Poise, Posture, and Pirouettes; Charleston variations; musicality in social dancing and Charleston; out-of-town guest instructors; solo jazz steps and routines (e.g., Tranky Do, the Stew); solo jazz in partner dancing; jams, competitions, and spotlights; role reversals and lead/follow swapping; swivels and styling; connection; moves development; lifts & jumps; swing-out clinics; moves creation; back-to-essentials, closed & close embrace Lindy hop (fast, not slow), Caribbean shim sham... and more!
