July is going to be a busy month at Boulder Swing! We will be starting a new series of classes on Monday nights, and we have a special guest instructor for our Tuesday night Balboa Concepts session. Be sure to come join us for our monthly social hangout at the Farmers Market on July 9th and our live band Jeremy Mohney, on July 11th.
Monday nights at Kake's Studios
We do not have class on July 4th. Our Monday night series will start on July 11th and run for three weeks.
We start a new Level 1 Swing series this month on July 11th from 8-9 PM. If you are new to swing dancing, this is where you should start.
If you've completed a month of Level 1, then you're ready to start our Level 1.5 from 7-8 PM. This month we'll be focusing on moves from closed position, and will end the month teaching a popular line dance: The Shim Sham.
Level 2 will be from 8-9 PM, and this month is our Savoy curriculum, which covers commonly used 8-count moves, made famous at the Savoy ballroom in the 30s and 40s.
Also, on Monday, we're moving our Level 2.5 series to the 7-8 time slot. This is for dancers who want a more advanced curriculum and have made it through our level 2 series. This month we'll be teaching moves that built upon what we learned in level 2.
Live music with Jeremy Mohney
After class, from 9 PM-10:30 PM we'll have our regular weekly dance. Staying for the social dance is a great way to try out moves you learn from lessons, as well as get to know your classmates, and it's free if you take a class. On July 11th Jeremy Mohney and his band are playing for us, so stick around for some great live music!
Tuesday nights at the Integral Center
We're pleased to announce Laura Keat and Heather Ballew will be teaching our Balboa Concepts class this month. Laura is one of the top Balboa instructors in the world, and has an incredible depth of knowledge of the dance. We are fortunate that she will be stopping by in the month of July. This is a unique chance to take classes from a rare talent. The class will run from 8 PM-9 PM. This is an intermediate level class, so you must have taken our beginning Balboa class or equivalent bootcamp to join.
Monthly Social Event
It can be hard to get to know people at a dance or in class. We try to orgainize monthly get togethers so people can hang out and learn more about each other. On Saturday, July 9th we are headed back to the Boulder Farmer's Market. We'll dance and hang out under the big bandshell, starting at 11am and then grab some lunch at the market near by and have a picnic. And don't forget to bring water! Even though we're in the shade it get's hot in outside in our Colorado weather.
