Registration will be held in the Tapestry Lobby before classes begin.

Charleston Freedom Sunday, 1200-1320
Harness the simple structure of Charleston and learn to fill it full of individuality and character! We'll work on loosening up your basics, finding space for styling and adding new footwork to this classic dance.

Lindy Hop Volume Sunday, 1330-1440
In this class, learn to vary the intensity of your Lindy Hop. By keeping swing-outs and connection loose or tightening them up, you'll become a dancer with more tone and volume!

Snack Break Sunday, 1440-1530
Snack Break

Tandemy Goodness Sunday, 1530-1640
Here's where we take this often misunderstood dance and turn up the heat! Adam has made it his goal as of late to get everyone's Tandem Charleston lookin' hot... and not even the devil, with a handful of wet kittens, can stand in his way... In this class, we'll fine tune basics and blow off socks with great new moves and ideas.

Dancing with Myself Sunday, 1650-1800
Solo movement is sooooo important to becoming a better partner dancer. This class will focus on how to simply hang with the music instead of just inserting choreography from solo jazz routines. Learn how to build a movement from a simple chug and really sell it with confidence. This class is a MUST for solo charleston/blues junkies.

Twin Cities Hot Club Sunday Night, 2030-2300
Adam will be attending part of the TC Hot Club performance at the Times Bar and Cafe
