136 Morrisville Square Way
Morrisville, NC 27560

Please choose above if you are planning to take ONE, TWO, THREE, or FOUR classes with us (contact us if you want to do all 5)
REMEMBER - we must have at least 6 people pre-registered so please share our schedule with other dancers to be sure the class you want takes place!!!
 

 
     APRIL SCHEDULE:

             MONDAYS  (APR 1, 8, 15, 22)***
                 6:30 - INT+ Swing** - 6 & 8-count figures, Charleston, Lindy, Jazz, and more focusing on Partner Dancing vs Pattern Dancing

                 7:30 - INT Balboa* - recommended for those that have completed 2-3 of our BEG Balboa series.  We explore building on
                                                      foundation figures and adding more complex moves, styling, and student suggestions.

 

                 ---> (due to low pre-registration #s, the 8:30pm Solo Jazz Routines class will be held at 7:30pm) <---

                 8:30 - SOLO JAZZ ROUTINES - there are many "Classic" Vernacular Jazz Routines that have stood the test of time and done in
                                                                     communities across the globe.  Joel has been in communities where all of these great dances listed
                                                                     are done socially with many joining in the fun.  The goal of these classes is to get through as many
                                                                     routines as possible with a primary focus on the quality of movement for each individual step and
                                                                     how to incorporate this into your social dancing. 

 

                                                                     APRIL FOCUS:  The Shim Shams & Break Steps

             WEDNESDAYS  (APR 3, 10, 17, 24)***

                 8:30 - BEG Lindy Hop - we recommend taking this class 3 times before moving to INT+ Swing.  Learn the basic footwork and
                                                           figures of LINDY HOP.  If you are going to call yourself a "Swing Dancer" then you need to learn this
                                                           dance which optimizes the Swing Era. It is an 8 count dance that is taught with a pulse, moving down into
                                                           the floor. It can be danced to various tempos with an African based posture and feel.  Lindy Hop is usually
                                                           danced to the music of the 1930s & 1940s or to any music that "swings".
 

                 *** if we do not get enough pre-registrations {at least 6} then we will offer:
