APRIL CLASSES

LINDY HOP Swing Out Like a Pro – April 2013 – A four week progressive Lindy Hop series taught by Liz and Chris.  Classes will be on Wednesdays April 3rd, 10th , 17th and 24th from 7-8.  The ballroom open at 6:45 for warm-up and will stay open for 15 minutes after the lesson ends for practice.  The classes will be at Absolute Dance Studio, 3900 Shelbyville Rd #16, Louisville, KY.

Swing Out Like a Pro Whether you’ve been dancing for a year or haven’t even danced your first step, Swing Out Like A Pro has what you need. Everything begins and ends with a solid foundation, and with the groundwork that we’ll lay in this class you can get your dancing off to an incredible start or you can take your dancing to the next level. We’ll start by rebuilding the basic pattern of Lindy Hop, the swing out. By shifting the focus from footwork to rhythm and connection, you’ll be able to dance longer and with a wider variety of partners. Once we’ve redone your basics, we’ll walk you through beginning patterns to make sure beginners pick up their steps comfortably and advanced dancers apply their technique consistently.Personal attention and feedback are key to development and improvement.  In order for teachers to have the opportunity to dance with and provide meaningful feedback to each student, this series will be limited to just 12 students.Cost:
LSDS Members $40 (all 4 lessons)*
