Coming in December at Boulder Swing Dance

We have a ton of great classes for you this month! Our progressive series will pick back up starting January 9th, but for the first two weeks of December, we have four specialty classes to choose from each night, and two GREAT social dances afterward. 

Monday Night at Kake's

December's always a crazy month for Boulder Swing. With people in and out of town, we've decided to forgo our regular month-long curriculum in lieu of drop-in specialty classes. Unlike our series classes, you must pay for EACH class you take, rather than one punch per night. BUT, that's because we have some really fantastic instructors coming, and also have asked our resident teachers to come up with some unique material to teach. Our Specialty classes are open to anyone Level 1 or higher. 

DECEMBER 5th

7:00-8:00

Intro to 20's Charleston with Sarah and Anthony
Get ready for the swingin' holidays with this class that will take you back to the partner dances done in the prohibition era. Embrace your inner flapper and emerge super dapper in this intro to 20's Charleston class.

Tango for Lindy Hoppers with Jessica Cutler
Using inspiration from Tango, learn to slow dance like a champ. If you have ever struggled with how to dance to slower, more blues based, songs then this class will help you become a maestro of movement, precision, and flair! Roses optional.

8:00-9:00

20's Charleston Flash Moves with Sarah and Anthony
Learn some flashy 20s Charleston moves that will have you ripping up the floor! Sarah has promised to teach one of her favorite moves, the Squirrel.

Dips & Tricks with Heather and Freeman
Don't be a drip, learn to dip! In this class you will learn some fancy tricks and dips that will have you impressing others and wielding influence all over the dance floor.

9:00-10:30

Live music with Jeremy Mohney and his Band

DECEMBER 12th

7:00-8:00

Collegiate Shag with Laura Keat 

Intro to Boogie Woogie with Matt and Skye
Step back into the dance halls of post-war Europe, and get swept away by this enchanting and rich six count swing dance.

8:00-9:00

Routine: Holiday Hop with Krister
A fun holiday themed routine similar to our Halloween Monster Mash. We will be performing this later in the evening at the Festivus party.

Routine: Doin' the Jive with Heather
A fun, intermediate, solo jazz routine that is reminiscent of the Shim Sham. This will also be performed later in the evening at our Festivus party.

9:00-10:30

Our Third Annual Festivus party and social dance!
We ask that you don your ugliest Christmas outfit, come ready to air your grievances via interpretive dance, and prepare for feats of strength (AKA a "talent" contest) which has included aerials, bagpipes and more in previous years so come ready to show off!

No SKEYE Brewing this month

Stay tuned for more information about our beginner series in Longmont starting January 2017.

Social Events

Every month we host social events for dancers to have a chance to get to know each other. Last month we celebrated Thanksgiving together, and this month we're embracing the season!

December 10th On Saturday we're heading to Downtown Boulder at 11 AM for some ice skating in the Teahouse Plaza. $9 covers admission and skate rentals, but mention Boulder Swing Dance in case we successfully arranged a discount.
