2:00 – 3:00 – Class 1 “Captain, My Captain”
This class we will work on being intentional and purposeful with moving around on the floor and how to direct your follow to go where you want her to go. We will work on directional moves (tuck-turns, swing-outs) as well as moving from one spot on the floor to a different spot farther away

3:00 – 4:00 – Class 2 “Watchtower”
This class we will work on being aware of your surroundings and being able to dance with your partner while also keeping an eye out for what the other couples around you are doing. How to find an open spot and line up a space for a swing-out. We will also work on how to stop your partner from following a disastrous trajectory…for both leads and follows.

4:00 – 5:00 – Class 3 “It’s no bigger than a womp rat…”
This class we will force you to dance in a small space…with other people! We’ll work on dancing smaller; how to bump into people rather than stepping on them; how to alternate and share an empty space with other couples; and how to move that empty space around.

$8/person/class General Admission
