Jazz Attack- 11/20

Here’s what’s going on a the University City Arts League at 4226 Spruce St. for only $7:

8pm-9pm: Lessons

This month Ghidiu & Caroline will be teaching us some lindy hop moves that move. At the same time there will be a drop-in novice lesson with Dylan and Michelle.

9pm-11pm: Dancing

To the tunes of Tony and Dylan.

Tuesday LaB – November 18th

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

8pm Main Floor: A novice Blues lesson taught by Allison. 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 Blues 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: Brian is teaching a Beginner+ series for November called “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Lindy Hop Variations, But Were Afraid to Ask”. In this month-long series, Brian takes us on a journey into the exciting world of Lindy Hop variations. Footwork variations, rhythm variations, shape variations, macro variations — you name it, we’ll do it. Variations are a great way to add some color and texture to your own dancing, since many of them can be done independently of a partner. We’ll talk about how to create the space for variations to happen (yours or your partner’s), and give you a ton of examples of variations to use in that space. We’ll cover some other related topics, in particular the exciting topic of receptive leading/active following, and open the door for follows to contribute to the dance in exciting and unexpected ways.  You must be comfortable with a swing out to take this class!

9pm -12am: Social Dancing on the main floor! Breanna and Matt Rapp 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!

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