This is a six-week lindy hop class series giving students the opportunity to learn and perform an uptempo choreography! Students may elect to perform this routine at Five Points Stomp – Meet The Scene Ball on Saturday, November 4th, 2017.
Students must be proficient in lindy hop; partner charleston technique and vocabulary; knowing or being comfortable with the idea of doing easy lifts/drops; comfortable swinging out to 170bpm or faster; and know or taken a workshop in the Tranky Doo, Big Apple, Al & Leon’s Shim Sham or Doin’ the Jive . It helps if you have taken at least 2-3 Swing 3 sessions, been on one of your local scene swing teams or have been pre-approved by one of the instructors, Kenny Nelson or Delilah Williams.
No partner is needed to sign up and students will rotate partners during class. This series will be capped to keep the lead to follow ratio even and allow for personal attention. For the (optional) performance, students may choose a partner or one will be arranged by the instructors.
The session runs every Thursday from September 21st through October 26th from 8:15-9:30pm at The Savoy. There may be an additional rehearsal before the Meet the Scene Ball. The registration fee of $85 includes admission to the gala (whether you are performing or not), all classes, and any extra rehearsals scheduled by your teachers.
Choreography and instruction will be by Delilah Williams and Kenny Nelson with Swingin’ Denver.
