Swing Sundays 2010 Beginning and Intermediate Swing Classes

Sundays beginning January 3rd
4:30PM-5:30PM Beginning Lindy Hop/East Coast Swing

Learn the basics—8 count and 6 count timing, sugar push and passes, swingout and circle, turns and tuck turn, and Charleston. In this unique class, initially you'll learn the "feel" of the patterns first before the footwork, so even if you have decent grasp of the patterns and their footwork, this would be a great class if you want to improve your "feel" and connection.
$18 drop-in, $68 4 weeks

5:30PM-6:00PM Free practice
Stay after class or come early. I'll be there to work with you, answer answer questions, and give you feedback.

Intermediate Lindy Hop
In this class you'll learn to lead and follow the essential 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop patterns including various turns, swingout and Charleston variations.
$68 for 4 Weeks or $18 per class.

**Note that there will be no classes on January 17th**

Happy New Year,

Last Friday Night Swing in Current Location!

As you may have read in last Sunday's New York Times, this Friday will be your last chance to experience Friday Night Swing at its 1500 16th Street space. Please join us in a rollicking farewell to the venue that has been our stomping grounds since March 2008. We won't be crying — we'll be dancing! And probably eating! But not at the same time!

Beginning on Friday, January 8, 2010, FNS will move to its new location at 1830 17th Street, just one block away. This is the main site of Cheryl Burke Dance, and we've got the Mezzanine all to ourselves. If you know what's good for you, you'll swing by every Friday night! Stay tuned for details.

In the meantime, check out the schedule (on the right-hand side) for details on what's happening this Friday night. We hope to see you there!

Happy Holidays,
Autumn LaVarta
