July 2015 Level 3 Class Series – The Big Apple (Solo Jazz)
Wed Jul 8 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
REGISTER AT THE DOOR

Class details

Role type: Solo
Price: see pricing section below
Teachers: Amanda Marchand, Kevin Weng

The Big Apple was a national phenomenon that blended the circle formations of African-influence with the trendy jazz figures and rhythms of the time. Popular moves were called in a manner similar to square-dancing and each dance was new and the figures particular to the region. However, most lindy hoppers today will only recognize Whitey's Lindy Hoppers who displayed this dance as a choreographed routine in the film, Keep Punching (1939). This routine is long and complex, requiring a wide breadth of jazz vocabulary and rhythm, but most importantly, it's incredibly energetic and fun! Come challenge yourself to learn this famous choreo in only five weeks!

PRE-REQUISITES: At least nine consecutive months of Level 1 and Level 2 including one full year of social dance, or discuss your eligibility with instructors.  Under-qualified students will be asked to transfer to Level 2 in order to strengthen their fundamentals.
