1) 7-8pm: "East Coast Swing #2":

Starting from scratch, we'll quickly review the basics of 6-count East Coast Swing, plus add a little flair with fun syncopations and solo steps. After that, we'll dive deeper in techniques that will not only help you to develop great connection and natural movement, but have you dancing with confidence and ease after only the first hour. For those who attended the July swing workshop, this will be all new material, so you should definitely come (and bring your friends!)

2) 8:15-9:15pm: "Swinging The Blues" - Mix it Up, Make it New!

In the second hour, learn the art of improvisation and the use of alternate rhythms with this fun East Coast Swing (ECS)-based approach to dance that integrates elements of swing, blues, and foxtrot to create something new and wonderful. In this workshop you'll not only learn a whole host of fun, original steps and combinations, but also a greater appreciation for those elements of partnering, framework, and connection that make the dance that much sweeter! Again, for those who attended the July workshop, this will be all new material -- not to be missed!

You must take Workshop #1 to participate in Workshop #2

All welcome - No partner needed.
