Swing Outs

Wednesdays
7:00pmโ€“ 8:00pm EDT

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

๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บWhether you have a partner or quarantining solo, learn and practice swing outs using the LinDNA diagram and concept!

โ“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.

Nancy loves the community, spirit and magic of swing dance. Nancy has the remarkable ability to create space where students can risks, be daring in their movement and dance with abandon! Since moving to London, England in 2013, Nancy has taught more than 20,000 people to dance in the UK.

Most recently, Nancy appeared on the BBC in her role as Creative Director for English Heritage's 'Dance for VE Day' programme - where over 120,000 people took part and has choreographed work for Sadler's Wells, the Southbank Centre and performed at Royal Albert Hall.

Yoga for Dancers

with Irena Taneva @irenatanevayoga

Saturdays

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 dancersย 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?

    Use the "Raise Your Hand" feature, or write your question 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
