Swing Outs

Wednesdays (8pm-9:30pm EDT)
8:00pm– 8:30pm Fundamentals
8:30pm-9:30pm Footwork & Variations

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

Zack Richard
from Swing Connexion in Montréal, Québec

SOLO JAZZ DANCE CLASS
Friday, July 10th 8:30pm– 9:30pm EDT

All the way from Montréal, learn and practice solo jazz transitions with a multi-champion dancer and renowned instructor Zack Richard!

Founder and director of Swing ConneXion in Montreal, QC, Zack Richard is one of the most versatile dancers on the floor: not only does he excel in swing dances (Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Shag) but he’s always absorbing dance forms old and new (ballroom, tango, salsa… still working on his twerking). A swing instructor for the past 15 years, he’s been all around the globe, spreading the joy of dancing to everyone who will listen and amassing an impressive list of prizes and accolades on the way. His sincere love of Chaplin and silent movies has lead him to conceptualize the show It Don’t Mean A Thing, mixing live music, swing dance and silent comedy for the joy of all, also starring his then-9-year-old daughter Camelia. When he feels like using big boy words, this jack-of-all-trades is also the author of the Jazz Monkey blog.

Special Guest Performance

by Kezia Nell

Friday during the dance

A vixen vocalist whose voice slyly creeps through the air like a sliver of cigarette smoke that coyly searches its way through a New Orleans jazz lounge. Her stage presence is a picture of delicate elegance as the diminutive singer coils around her microphone, delivering searching songs that traverse folk, jazz, country and electro pop.

Blessed with silky tones and sassy poise, svelte chanteuse Kezia Nell originally from New Zealand announced her arrival in America with her first US release “My Miami” under the name Kezia Vs The Lizard, a joint venture with Miami house producer British Lizard.

A common flair for Burlesque inspired performance ensures a visual as well as aural feast. While drawing on this cabaret style she retains her rock in roll sensibilities, interacting with her band and the audience. Her style has been coined ‘Marilyn Monroe meets Blondie.’

A uniquely old soul, Kezia was reared on a diet of 60’s soul and psychedelia, which is reflected in her upcoming debut album. She describes the album as ‘Eclectic” as it moves from sultry soul to rockabilly. The conception of this album was recorded at Redbull Studios, NZ. While Kezia’s voice recalls the powerfully husky sounds of Loretta Lynn and Elkie Brooks it retains a distinct identity of its own.

Her first release, Kezia & The Seven Year Itch EP featured the support of some of Wellington, New Zealands finest musicians, was released nationwide through Peachy Keen Recordings in late 2006. The first single Pretty Baby, an upbeat, sexually-charged foray into electro pop-rock, received radio play nationwide on the NZ bnet stations and was used in arts programme The Gravy.

Having spent two years working on music projects in Asheville, NC, she is now based in Miami FL, where she is putting the finishing touches to her album while writing and recording new material.

Practice yoga with a focus on alleviating body strain from dancing! Teaching yoga since 2013, Irena Taneva will guide you through a practice specifically for dancers to stretch and strengthen those muscles that are overworked!

About your instructor:
Irena is fun and lighthearted, she brings a playful approach, as well as deep understanding of yoga anatomy and philosophy to her students. She strongly believes that yoga is a personal journey in which the more you are able to embrace rather than fight your own limitations and vulnerabilities, the less limits they hold and the more balance and energy you experience. Yoga has brought a profound purpose to her life which she shares with others.

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
