Join this class for an introduction to this energetic style of dance. Whether you call it Jitterbug or East Coast Swing, you will gain a solid foundation of applying the basic step with its traditional rock step.
You will also gain confidence to dance in closed and open body positions, and dance using all three hand positions.
Moves featured in this course include: the send out, bring back, crossed-arm turn, he goes, she goes, cuddle, overhead arm slide, around the horn, belt loop, barrel roll, hammerlock, kick steps, open up, couple rotate and the dip.
Emphasis will be on single-step timing, however, a variety of speeds of music will be used to allow students to expand their skills to dance the double and triple-step swing styles.
