8pm-9pm: Lessons

Join us for the month of April on improving your turns and spins with Beth Hartzel! This progressive series (meaning you must attend the first class) will focus on technique to lead and follow them clearly, beautifully, and elegantly. For the first week, the focus will be turns and spins as well as compression and leverage drills. Week 2-4 will be tentatively perfecting tuck turns, pop turns, linear versus rotation runs and rock steps. Review and improve on your turns and spins with Aprils series with Beth Hartzel!

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST ATTEND WEEK 1 TO ATTEND ANY OTHER CLASS IN THE SERIES!

Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice lesson with Christian all about partnered Charleston. Novice lessons are good for people who are new to dancing, or who just want to work on the basics!

8pm Upstairs: Since it’s the 5th Tuesday of the month we’re having a Town Hall Meeting. We will be talking about how LaB is organized, what’s going to happen with Tuesday LaB and answering any other questions you have about LaB! Come give us feedback! Learn how to get more involved!

9pm -12am: Social dancing on the main floor with Bitters & Rye playing live! For more details and/or to see who’s gonna be there, checkout the Facebook event.

This week Tuesday LaB costs $10 (normally it’s $7, but we’ve got a live band playing so we raised the price for this week). 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!

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

Tuesday LaB – March 24th

**For now we are still going to be at the Ethical Society Building for Tuesday LaB. When that changes, we will post here on the website, and on Facebook. Stay tuned!**

Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice Lindy lesson with Brian. This week it will be about 8-count Lindy. 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 month the series is: “Mosaic Dancing” with Ashley — This series is all about breaking the things we thought we needed, and putting them back together in new and beautiful ways we had only dreamed of before! Prepare to question the things you took for granted about dance, and to push past your boundaries and habits into a world of creativity and new ideas. This series will be on topics equally applicable to lindy and blues, so come prepared for anything and then some!

9pm -12am: Social dancing on the main floor with Chris 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!

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