Beginning Lindy Hop
Our new material was very traditional, the Around the World with Points, a classic Frankie Manning movement! We're used to stretching away on the 1 & 2, so this takes some practice to learn how to lead & follow. Great work tonight!
Intermediate Lindy Hop
We worked on a Swing Out with an interesting pop-turn in the middle. Leaders, if you want to recreate this one on the dance floor, make sure that you're leading toward your right shoulder with the pop-turn (and not across your body). You'll also both switch sides once more. We used the momentum of this movement's follow through to initiate a four-count turn.
Then we worked on what we called the "S-turn fake-out". It's a continuous move that turns your 10-count S-turn into a massive 16-count monster (and cool transition into hand-to-hand Charleston!)
Our DJ's Lark Mervine & Anthony Carusiello made sure that we had a great night of dancing!
Be sure to check out all the info on our up-coming workshop with Stefan & Bethany... it's going to be awesome, and the deadline for saving $ is coming up soon!
