Trickeration Routine, 25th of July

The Trickeration is one of the classic solo jazz routines. Norma Miller choreographed it and used it for years as an audition routine. People who mastered it in 2 hours, were allowed to join her troupe.  It is tricky, but fun.. so take on this challenge with Danny!

Level: Some solo jazz experience comes in handy, otherwise be prepared for a challenge.

Rhythms! 1st of August

Swing-jazz is an extremely rhythmical style of music. That means there’s a world of rhythmical opportunities to play around with when dancing Lindy-hop. Collin is a dancer ánd a drummer, the perfect person to teach you the awareness and the tools to make your own rhythms, so you’ll become a human drum machine on the social dance floor!

Level: As soon as you’re comfortable with a change place (aka: pass by), you’re good to go! It will be a challenge for all levels.

A Beginning and an End, 22nd of August

Do you sometimes find yourself awkwardly bouncing next to your partner to start a dance? What about these songs that seem to keep milking that last chord while you’re already done dancing and stand there smiling at your partner for half a minute?
Using the concept of ‘less = more’ we will work on making you dance the whole song, from the first beat to the very end. And show you how restriction brings creativity into your dancing and with that, lots of fun!

Level: 2 months to ∞ years of dancing

Level: At least half a year of Lindy-Hop experience required, but there will also be challenges for those with years of experience!
