August: Comfortable Swing

You’ve got the steps. You’ve got the moves. You know how to swing out and do turns and have fun on the dance floor. But oh man, it feels like a ton of WORK!

In this class, we’ll teach techniques and exercises to help you get comfortable in the dance. In week one, we’ll explore connection with your partner and figure out how we can make the dance feel effortless for your partner, no matter their skill level. In week two, we’ll talk about breaking out of patterns so you don’t feel constrained to exact footwork and can recover flawlessly from any surprise. Week three is all about the need for speed! We’ll turn up the tempo and talk about techniques to help you feel more comfortable even at faster speeds. Finally, week four we’ll put it all together! Faster speeds, improvisation and variation, all while making your partner feel flawless.
