September 2017 Intro to Lindy Hop & Choreography 101 with SwingColumbus

Join SwingColumbus for their September monthly lesson series! These 4-week lesson series are held THURSDAYS in September 2017. No partner required! We will rotate during the lesson so everyone can practice.

SwingColumbus strongly encourages their students to attend all lessons, as there will be no make-up classes or refunds for classes missed.

You must attend the first class to join the entire series.

Intro to Lindy Hop Series: 6:45 – 7:45 PM
This class is designed for dancers who have taken less than 4 Lindy Hop classes, or have never taken a class with SwingColumbus. Lindy Hop is the vintage swing dance of the 1940’s, and now is your chance to learn it from scratch. Viktor You will start with the fundamentals and learn everything you need to know to start lindy hopping! No experience necessary and no partner necessary! You will learn several of the basic moves, the Swingout, the Lindy circle, with some variations in the later weeks.

Many people take the Beginning Lindy Hop session several times, to build confidence with the 8-count basics.

Choreography 101 Series: 8:00 – 9:00 PM
Want to share your love of dance with more than one person at a time? Interested in being able to plan and practice a dance sequence to showcase your style? Team SwingColumbus captain Gail Clendenin will guide you through this introduction to creating your own choreography.

Depending on each dancers’ background and interest, you might:
– Choreograph a series of moves from other lessons or videos to help you remember your repertoire,
– Plan a short sequence for a jam circle, or
– Create a one-minute “60 Seconds of Fame” routine to perform at Rocktober.

This is a performance class, rather than a social dancing class, and class time will be available for students to work on their individual solo or group performances. Students are encouraged to have a pre-selected partner or group they plan to take the class with, if not working on a solo routine.

This class is designed for dancers who have taken at least a few classes with SwingColumbus.
