Last night we got off to a swingin' start to the New Year! The evening started with packed out classes and ended with some killer music from Jeremy Mohney and his band at the dance. Missed out on the fun? Next week is the last chance to join our Level 1 series in January. If your New Years resolution is to learn to dance (or to start dancing again), this is the perfect opportunity to jump in head first.
"One reason I go is cause dancing makes me smile. Listening and moving to live music is a joyful experience and who doesn't need more of those." – Vicky Youcha
Next week we will be reviewing the basic steps in Level 1 and then add in some fun new moves. In Level 1.5 we will continue to work on the Frankie phrase, but now start to incorporate turns as well as some cool close position movements. Finally, in Level 2 we will build on our Savoy Ballroom material with promenades–one of Frankie Manning's favorite moves. Anthony will be our DJ for the night. See you next Monday!
Below are some pictures and video from the evening.
