Nights

Swing Outs

Wednesdays starting September 9th
8:30pm-9:30pm EDT
Fast Lindy

4 x World Champion and pros Yuval Hod and Gypsy Juls teach a 4-week progressive series of swing out variations and footwork.

💃🕺Whether you have a partner or quarantining solo, learn and practice swing outs using the LinDNA diagram and concept!

❓What's LinDNA, you ask? There is a basic structure in swing that Yuval has visualized for you into a diagram on the floor. So grab some masking/painters tape (if you have), and create your personal coach at home! This will help for both singles and couples in the class.

*Prerequisite: In this intermediate level class, you should be comfortable with basic 6/8 count moves, and have a basic understanding an 8 count swing out.

Special Guest Instructor

Nathalie Gomes Adams
from New Orleans, LA

DANCE CLASS: A PARADE ROUTINE
Friday, August 7th 8:30pm– 9:30pm EDT

Four time World Swing Dance Champion Nathalie Gomes Adams is known for her fearless gravity-defying aerials and award-winning choreographies. She has taught, performed and judged around the world, as well as opened schools in NYC and NoLa. When she's not flying high in the air, Nathalie stays grounded with her dance troupe Les Rebelles.

In this dance class, we'll start with a short warm up that includes vocabulary specific to the dance we are working on, and then we work on the choreography. So you actually learn a style of dance, technique and not just choreography.

Growing up in Reading, Pennsylvania, singing in choirs and accompanying on piano, Rachel Ohnsman moved to Miami in 2014, studying classical voice and vocal jazz at the University of Miami Frost School of Music. In 2016, she was a finalist in the theatre division of the Classical Singer vocal competition. In 2017, Rachel presented at TEDxUMiami with her talk, “Breaking Genres.” In 2018, she released her debut album, Lovers, which she wrote, arranged, and co-produced. Rachel is currently producing two concept albums, Moon Songs and Nuclear Family, which are engaged in a friendly Kickstarter competition to raise funds.

Rachel has toured the United States, Europe, and Japan as a solo act and in professional ensembles, at venues such as Carnegie Hall (NYC), Stephensdom (Vienna), and All of Me Club (Tokyo). On the stage, Rachel originated the role of Mary in Awkward: A Song Cycle, and recently played Natalie in Next to Normal (CaneStage). In addition, Rachel has music directed several musical theatre productions with amateur and professional casts, including Violet, 13 the Musical, and Cats, as well as a sold out weekend of Miguel Luciano’s cabaret. She was recently selected as the Music Apprentice for Transcendence Theatre Company in Sonoma, CA.

General Things to

  • Auto-Muted Audio

    Your audio will be automatically muted when you join the meeting, and your video on. Please keep these settings so that the main screen remains on the teachers. If you have a question, don't forget to unmute!

  • Auto-on Video

    Once you allow Zoom to access your camera, the meetings are set to automatically have your camera turned on. This is so we can see you, practice together, and break moves down a little more where we see there is a general difficulty or a question (just like REAL class!).

  • Have a Question?

    Write your questions and comments in the group chat!

  • Music during class

    Check the class section for a Spotify link to a special playlist for each day! This way if internet is lagging, you can always turn us down and play the music at home.

During these hard times, we must do what we can to protect the local dance community and postpone large gatherings until we can ensure your safety. The reality is COVID-19 could easily spread throughout our dance community. If we do what we can now (i.e. consistent hand washing, social distancing, limiting exposure to large crowds) community spread can be reduced dramatically.

Stay tuned on social and check your inboxes for future plans, as we will collaborate with the rest of the community and continue to create dance opportunities during this difficult time.

If anyone falls ill please call the COVID-19 Call Center available 24/7
+1 (866) 779-6121 or email COVID-19@flhealth.gov
