Playing With Swing Music!
Cindy Gardner & Jeff Camozzi, Instructors
Sat 10/09, 10 am - 1 pm, $24 General, $21 Student

Learn how to add your own creativity to the dance, responding to what you hear in the music. We’ll start with a short “Swing Music Theory” lesson, then work on movement techniques and exercises to incorporate better musicality into the dance. From hitting the breaks to emulating musical riffs, you'll learn how to listen to music more critically and dance the style of the music! (For Lindy Hop &/or East Coast Swing)

Musicality Mini-Series
Jeff & Liz Camozzi, Instructors
3 Saturdays: 10/16, 10/23 & 10/30
10 - 11 am, $9 General, $7 Student

Jeff and Liz's “fun first” method of swing dancing combines traditional figures and sequences with a large emphasis on personal style. Using their fantastically fun, creative exercises, each workshop will use different methods to help you learn how to express your own sense of energy and enjoyment in the music. Each workshop may be taken independently -- or take all three for maximum benefit to your personal style in your dancing!

Jeff & Liz believe that the path to dance enlightenment does not lie in how perfectly one triple-steps, but how joyfully one expresses themselves. Ask them for a dance or smile - or both!

Package the workshops and save some bucks!
Jeff & Liz's 3 Workshops: $24 General, $18 Students
All 4 Workshops: $45 General, $36 Students

Hi All!

Come out this Saturday to help kick-off our Musicality Mini-Series! This three week series will focus on various methods find your creativity and express your joy of Lindy Hop in a musical way. Our classes will cover the following:

Building your Toolbox - 10/16

This class is all about the basics of musical movement. We'll work on simple movements that will help you express the music in your own way. This includes some outside-of-the box ideas - come prepared to play!

Making a Musical Partnership - 10/23

How do we take a creative idea and share it with our partner? How can we extend or shorten our movements together to match the musical style? This class is about learning techniques to compliment our partner's musicality with our own.

Hitting The Breaks! - 10/30

How do you hit the breaks? What about slides? When does the music suggest slow and smooth vs high energy and bouncy? This class will focus on using the common Jazz / Blues musical structures to assist in our creative movement.



Classes are at the Social Dance Studio (www.socialdancestudio.com)
10 - 11 am, $9 General, $7 Student

See you there!
