ABOUT THE CLASSES:
This is an Intensive weekend working on lindy hop, solo jazz, and choreography with Erin Morris and Ryan Calloway. Known throughout the world for their unique individual styles, ability to create highly musical routines, and highly informative teaching styles.
What is an Intensive weekend, you ask? An Intensive weekend is a great way to quickly improve your dancing, explore new ideas, and build a solid rapport with your colleagues and teachers. With a class size capped at 25 couples, you'll be taking 8 hours of classes with the same colleagues, and only one set of instructors. This allows you to get a large amount of individual attention, to build rapport with instructors who are able to mold the classes to fit the individual dancing styles in the class. This allows you to improve at a much faster pace.
This workshop weekend is geared towards Intermediate+ and Advanced dancers. There are no formal class auditions during the weekend, rather we ask that you self-assess, or contact us for feedback on your dancing before signing up. In order to maintain a high-level of learning in the classes, we ask that dancers meet the following criteria.
DANCER CRITERIA:
- You know the Shim Sham, Tranky Doo, and Big Apple. Or you have learned other solo jazz routines created by historic or current day role models in the swing dance community.
- You can, with good technique, execute a swing out, lindy circle, tuck turn, underarm pass by, and are able to transition in and out of partner charleston (side by side and tandem at a minimum, hacksaws for extra credit), without fudging the footwork, up to 220 bpm.
-You are working to create your own sequences and routines, and looking for a way to meaningfully contribute to the art of lindy hop.
- You regularly travel to out-of-town weekend events to learn and compete
- You're always interested in learning and refining technique, and as such, you love to nerd out on every little detail of the swing out, and other moves from the classic repertoire.
- You spend time watching, analyzing, and copying vintage swing clips.
