It is the start of a new year, and there are some exciting things brewing at Boulder Swing. This month we are kicking off our new Monday night dance, Flatiron Stomp. To help us swing into 2015 we have Jeremy Mohney and his band. These are some extraordinarily talented local musicians that we are fortunate to have.
Our community is friendly and welcoming. If you are just starting out, stick around for the dance after classes. Swing dancing is a great way to make new friends, learn new skills, and stay healthy. If you have any questions our instructors are always ready to help, and we also have special dance ambassadors who serve as hosts for the evenings.
This month we will be having our dances at downtown Boulder Kakes Studios. There are two rooms, which means we have some fun things planned for the dances. Each week we will have Lindy Hop in the main room and feature either Balboa or mini privates in the second room. Check the calendar for more information.
We also have a stellar line up of classes this month. Heather and Krister will be teaching our Level 1 and Level 2 Lindy Hop. Level 1 Lindy Hop is for those just starting out and will have you up and dancing on the social dance floor in no time. In Level 2 Lindy Hop we will be refining our movements and improving the quality of our dancing while learning some great new moves.
We also have two special guest instructors, Ceth Stifel and Delilah Williams, in January. They have some awesome material planned for our Level 3 Lindy Hop class, and will be doing a special Swing Rueda series open to our Level 2 and Level 3 students. Swing Rueda is a group dance done in a circle with a person who calls moves for everyone to do. There are a number of moves and patterns to learn. This is a progressive series with each week building on the previous. Below is a video of Swing Rueda.
Ceth and Delilah are both championship level dancers who regularly teach, perform, and compete. They are also just nice people who connect well with their students.
We can't wait to see you out dancing. On behalf of everyone at Boulder Swing we wish you an amazing 2015!
