Have you ever wanted to learn to Lindy Hop but don’t have time to commit to a weekly class? This is your chance! Our next weekend “crash course” workshop is 3 hours on Sunday Oct 28th, 12:00pm-3:00pm. Come learn from experienced teachers who are also social dancers in the Lindy Hop scene.
We will cover six count basic (East Coast Swing), basic eight count (Lindy Hop), and Charleston Basic. Moves include swing out, Lindy circle, swing out from closed, and side by side Charleston. At the end of this class, you will be able to attend a social dance and dance to music.
Instructors Mike Legett and Dan Rosenthal recently moved to Boston. And we welcome them to our scene and we’re really lucky to have them teach Swing Boot Camp this month. Here they are performing a Lindy & authentic Jazz demo:
Mike (the Girl) (as she’s affectionately known) is a passionate aficionado of jazz and blues dances, known all over the world for her friendliness, teaching skills, beautiful following, and expressive dancing. She brings both vibrant energy and technical precision to the classroom, and strives to make every social dance the best experience possible.
Dan is a dynamo of energy, attempting to do all the things, all the time. He strives to excel at all forms of solo and partnered vernacular Jazz dance, from Lindy Hop to Blues, even dabbling in West Coast Swing. Dan loves being the center of attention, whether he’s performing, competing, or just being a goon. As much as he loves the stage, Dan’s foremost goal is to be the best social dancer and teacher he can be. As a teacher he focuses on strengthening connection and aesthetic, helping dancers feel as good to dance with as they look.
