Do you have equivalent experience of at least one semester’s worth of Swing I? Have you mastered the basic rhythms of Lindy Hop? Can you do tuck-turns, pass-bys, lindy circles, and swing outs in your sleep? Are you ready add complexity and variations to your basics, and begin developing your personal dance style? You’re ready for Swing II! Message us or ask the instructors if you’re unsure 🙂
Swing II: Rhythm & Flow
This month we will work towards the goal of being musical and lyrical in our dancing!.
Rhythm! From syncopation of the triple steps, to the phrase structures, we will not only understand the music but also learn techniques to express them. Flow! We will also work to build the awareness of flow. Flashy moves/movements are great, but best do them only when they serve the flow. We will learn to identify the moments when the moves are well played and when not.
***Prerequisites: Must know basic 8- and 6-count Lindy Hop movement to be successful in this class. Students should have experience equivalent to at *least* one semester of Swing I. Many students take Swing I multiple times before joining Swing II. If you’re not sure whether you’re ready for this particular Swing II series, ask the instructors!
