OCTOBER CLASS DESCRIPTIONS -

Smith Street Swing TUESDAYS @ The Copacabana:

Classes with Lexi Joel

6:30 - Beginning Lindy Hop -  Beginning Lindy Hop returns to Tuesdays @ 6:30!  The 5 week October block of the Vintage Partner Dance Series will cover the one, the only...LINDY HOP!  Learn the dance that evolved out of the swing jazz era ballroom dance floors of Harlem, NYC.  When people speak of "swing dancing" this is what they're really talkin' about!  It's the footwork and feeling you've been waiting for! Check out this video to see what we mean (featuring Ramona Staffeld!)

Learn the 8 count Lindy Hop rhythm for the first time, or go for a refresh round to aid your muscle memory.  Spaces are limited as we will need room to SWING OUT WIDE.  

Remember...preregistration puts you the raffle to win a FREE Private Lesson with the teachers!
Limited space for this 5 week Block - $50  

Sign Up Here!

7:45 - Dips & Tricks, Slips & Slides!  - Great for beginners and intermediate dancers :)

Add some flare if you dare!  Great for dancers of all levels, (yes, even you on your first time ever) we will examine some stylish dips, tricks, slips and slides for the month of October using only a basic East Coast Swing Rhythm.  No knowledge of Lindy Hop Required!

8:45 - Intermediate Lindy Hop Drop-in - This month we will cover connection technique to make your Lindy lovely, with the exception of week 1 focusing on finishing the routine we've been working on. Everyone stick around until the end to take a sneak peak at the Smith Street Rascals!  Yah!

Registrations open for Vintage Partner Dance Series December block!

We're terribly excited at how our very first group of vintage partner dancers are progressing!  You guys are killing it!

We have now opened registrations for the December block with Kenny Nelson and Lexi Keeton which is only 3 weeks long (and only $30) due to us being closed on December 27th.  

The dates are December 6, 13 & 20.  You can register here now!

For the current November group, remember that you can sign up for this too!  Whilst we will be teaching the dance from scratch, the material will be different so you'll definitely still build on your mad skills and be entertained.

Thanks for being part of Smith Street Swing!
