LaBaret!
Community Talent Showcase
Description: The LaBaret is a critical piece in what makes LaBLove special. As an event that celebrates the coming-about of LaB as an organization promoting and teaching Lindy and Blues in Philadelphia, we have a large number of people in our community and they all have talents inside and outside of their dancing abilities. This is a time for us to showcase those skills and talents to our community and know that we’re all human and have interests outside of dancing. Come see what this year has to offer and fill out the LaBaret Sign-Up Form if you’re interested in showcasing something!

Our Instructors!
Title: Teaching LaB (Blues)
Description: At LaBLove this year we’ll be having two rooms with this activity, one with blues and one with swing to allow for the same / similar music, for about an hour at the end of the day of classes. We’ll have 3-4 instructor groups (either pairs or solo teachers) teaching 15 minute classes on a specific topic, something like side-by-side Charleston or perhaps Struttin’ Blues, and then there will be a short break for students to practice what they’ve learned and the instructor groups can meet with our staff of experienced teachers for some feedback on how to improve their class or better engage students in learning. We’ll then provide an opportunity for students to switch, rotate, or stay with the same instructor group and we’ll repeat until our time is up! Check out the Teaching LaB Page for more details.

This time doesn’t have any plan, but in the past we’ve talked about some of the things in LaB’s history, and what we look to in the future!
