SwingLuxDay Workshop December 14th
Swing into Christmas
Classes at Altrimenti, 5 Avenue Marie-Therese, L-2132 Luxembourg
Lets send out 2019 in style with a SwingLuxDay workshop and a special Christmas swing party! Your local teachers have prepared some exciting topics for you:
Balboa styling for followers – Natalija
This is a solo dancing class for followers that feel comfortable with their Balboa basics and are ready to add some spice to their Balboa! Already know some footwork variations, but would like to get more ideas and inspiration? Then this course is exactly for you! During the course we will practice follower footwork variations and syncopations in your shuffles, lollies, toss-out and other basic pure balboa and bal-swing steps and moves. You will get an idea of how to practice on your own, which is one of the key steps in developing your technique, musicality and creativity as well as to incorporate that in your couple dance. Only follower styling will be covered in this class.
Hollywood inspired swing moves – Ilias & Calliope
This is a couple dancing class for dancers that are comfortable with 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop rhythms. From the late ‘20s until the early ‘60s various Swing dances appeared in many Hollywood movies and were performed by both dancers and actors. One of the most well known examples is the movie Hellzapoppin’(1941) with Norma Miller and Frankie Manning performing among other lindy hop legends.
We decided to dig up some less famous clips and find out which moves where fashionable around each era. During the workshop we will show you some not so famous moves and patterns used in these clips, as well as some well known moves that were danced with different styling and we will explore how we can incorporate all these into our dancing. It is recommeded to have at least 2 semesters of swing dancing experience, to participate in this class.
Introduction to Tap – Ieva
This is a solo dancing class where you will learn how to create sounds and rhythms with your feet. You will learn some basic tap steps, rhythms and their combinations. No previous tap experience is required. We will dance without tap shoes but bringing shoes with a hard leather or similar sole which can make a sound is highly recommended for a more fun experience.
