This week Jeremy Mohney and his Band kicked off our first Flatiron Stomp of February with some seriously swinging tunes. A big thanks to everyone who came out and made the night so awesome.
In the level 1 class this month Krister and Heather are teaching side-by-side Charleston and 8-count Lindy Hop. We had a great crew of new dancers show up and then stick around for the dance. This is the first month that Balboa has been added to the level 2 curriculum. For the first two weeks we will be teaching the Balboa basics, and in the last two weeks we will be teaching Tandem Charleston.
In Level 3 Ceth and Delilah started their "Rockin’ in Rhythm" series. Each week they are spicing up standard Lindy Hop moves with soft shoe movements and rhythms. Here is a video recap of their class.
Finally, in the specialty "Slowin’ it Down" class Ceth and Delilah started a new month-long routine focused on helping students learn to dance better to slower music. If you take all four weeks of this series then you will be eligible to perform the routine at the final Flatiron Stomp on February 23.
Next week we will continue on with our progressive series. We will also have music played by special guest DJ, Brittney. And don’t forget that on February 15th we will be hosting our Balentines Day Balboa Bootcamp. Until next week, keep on dancing.
