Swing Boot Camp with Mike & Abby

Category: dances

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 Sept 16th, Noon-3:00pm. Come learn from experienced teachers who are also social dancers in the Lindy Hop scene. Np partner required.

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.

Mike has been dancing since the Swing Boom of the early 2000s. He is also a founding member of Boston Swing Central, where he has served as music director, president and marketing director. He enjoys working with “new” dancers. And also sharing the epiphanies of dance that he has discovered. He has attended many camps, exchanges and National competitions in his tenure as Lindy Hopper. His motto is “Better living through dancing.”

Abby started Lindy Hopping in 2007, and she immediately fell in love with it. In addition to Lindy Hop, Abby has studied Charleston, Balboa, Blues, and other authentic forms of early Jazz Dance. She has competed on a national level, both solo and partnered, placing first in the intermediate Jack & Jill at Beantown Camp this year. Abby’s philosophy on teaching is to make the learning process fun and energetic, not fearing mistakes or looking silly, with an emphasis on musicality.
