Tuesday LaB – September 23rd

Happy Tuesday dancing! Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice Lindy lesson with Dan Repsch! Novice lessons are drop-in friendly, so they are a great place to start if you’re new to the dance. The first half hour of the social dance will have mostly Lindy music so you can practice what you learned right away (but we hope you stay for the whole dance, and also come back next week).

8pm Upstairs: This September we’ve got a Level-Up Lindy class with Brian and Hannah. Whether you’re a novice dancer who’s ready to move to beginner classes, or you’re a beginner who’s ready to reexamine your fundamentals, this class will help you level up your Lindy Hop to the next level. In this 4-week series, we’ll introduce, practice, and explore the technique and vocabulary essential to any Lindy Hop dancer. This series is focused on both novice and beginner dancers; for novices, we’ll build the basics of your dance past the novice lesson level, and for beginners, we’ll challenge you to revisit and rethink those basics at a deeper level. This is a progressive series; you must attend both weeks 1&2 to come to the rest of the series (or with instructor permission).

9pm -12am: Social Dancing on the main floor! Dan Repsch and Dylan are DJing.

Tuesday LaB nights cost $7 to attend (that includes both the dance and the lesson). No partner is required. We do not allow anyone to join lessons more than 15 minutes after their scheduled start time, so make sure to arrive on time!

***Get excited because next week (September 30th) we are having a LaB Fall Formal! Which means some people will dress up extra fancy, and there is going to be a live band (Chelsea Reed and the Fairweather Five!). Admission will be $10.***

Tuesday LaB dances and classes are held in the Ethical Society building on Rittenhouse Square (1906 S Rittenhouse Square). Hope to see you there!
