The day…

This workshop is aimed at Improvers to Intermediate dancers, wishing to develop and take their dancing to the next level. The day will be split into 3 sections:

Section 1 (1.15hrs)
Techniques for Tricky Swing Out Variations

Learn the skills required to add 8 count variations to your Lindy Turns, Circles etc.

Section 2 (1.15hrs)
Dips & Tricks (Intermediates) OR Authentic Jazz

In this section, you’ll learn some fun tricks, that are suitable for cabarets, jams or the social dance floor, when not busy. Intermediates or above only. There may also be an alternative Authentic Jazz class running, in the studio next door, for those that do not wish to do Dips n Tricks.

Section 3 (1.15hrs)
1930’s Charleston Variations

Gain, some really nice, cool and fun Charleston variations, that you can use on the social dance floor, to all tempos, from slow to crazy fast.

The teachers

We will have at least 5-6 teachers on the day, TBC.

General info

Whilst you can book with a partner to gain a reduced entry, this is not essential as everyone will have the opportunity to rotate throughout the day.

The night…

JiveSwing will host a night of social dancing until midnight, where you can show off all your new moves, to the tunes from our live band, (all the way from Italy!) the Billy Bros. Jumpin’ Orchestra!
