3pm to 5:30pm, Saturday March 2.
Teachers: Simon & Carlynn.
Come do some of the best and most fun stuff in partner dance! At least that’s what we think.
Learn some air steps, lifts, tricks and drops suitable for Lindy Hop and other partner dances.
There will be no overlap with the moves taught in our Saturday January 5 workshop.
This is an all levels workshop, but you must be athletic and bring your own dance partner. In addition, the lead must able to easily carry the follower around.
Note this student comment from a 2011 Swing Toronto air steps workshop taught by Simon & Cheryl: “They weren’t kidding about the athletic part.”
You need to bring your own dance partner for the workshop because there is no partner rotation in workshops of this kind, unlike all other workshops and classes Swing Toronto presents.
Leads please bring shoes that have good traction especially under your heels (such as running shoes and shoes with rubber heels).
Followers please bring shoes that are good for landing from a jump (shoes that provide traction and absorption such as running shoes).
Followers, knee pads are suggested (but not required) for one of the tricks we may do. They will not be needed once you have it, but may be helpful while learning.
Do of course bring clothes that are comfortable and allow freedom of movement, and that you don’t mind being upside down in.
If you wish you can come in a group of three, as long as the three include one very sporting and fit leader or follower who is happy to do double duty working and dancing with the other two.
