October Swing Dance Classes

October Classes with Justin and Becky

October class are just a couple days away!  Becky and I have decided to split this month into two themes!

First up on 10/1 and 10/8:

"You Can't Go Wrong With the Classics!"

These first two weeks will be spent on learning classic moves that are universally recognized in any swing scene in the world.  Of course we'll be taking a little liberty and adding some of our own twists.  If you've recently taken one of our Beginning Lindy Hop series these classes will introduce you to new material that will fit right in where your classes left off.

Next on 10/15 and 10/22:

"Slow Swing and Lindy"

By popular demand, we'll be spending these two weeks working on slower tempos; we'll show you how to make these tempos exciting and energetic.  Since "slow" is a relative term, we'll be working within a good size range of tempos to even the classes out.

Fifth Monday:  Each month that has a 5th Monday BCH will bring something new and different to the table.  Keep an eye out for details for this coming Fifth Monday on 10/29!

September Dance Classes: Charleston and a Video Project

September's Brew City Hops classes with Tory and Henry will focus on Charleston!  Each lesson will start with some solo Charleston work to get our bodies warmed up and our feet in the right places.  We'll work on a different form of partnered Charleston each week, and finish the night by learning some choreography for our upcoming video project. 

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's new album came out today, September 4, and they've asked for submissions of videos of swing dancing to one of their new tracks.  You can download "She's Always Right" by visiting BBVD's website, you can check out BCH's last video project below, and you can be a part of the Brew City Hops submission to BBVD this month!

If you'd like to work on your Charleston but would prefer not to show off your mad skills on YouTube, that's ok by us.  All the skills we cover in class are meant for the social floor (but also look rockin' awesome).  If you'd like to be on the "behind the scenes" video crew (instead of or in addition to dancing on camera), we'd love help in that department as well.
