Swingin’ Good Time

21 Sep

Swingin Sign

Lesson

A good time was had by all at the swing dance last night with Swingin’ Around Town hosted by Blossom Yoga.  The night started with an hour long lesson that reviewed the basic jitterbug, tuck turns, a tandem Charleston, and a dip. The class was taught by Charles and Jennie Fournier.

Dance

The dance started off with a half hour of DJ’d music, followed by live songs played by the new local band, Angel Adam’s Preservation Society.  Experienced dancers showed off their moves, while beginners had a great chance to practice what they’d learned at the lesson.  A raffle was held for a gift certificates to the Copper Kettle and free entry for one couple to the next Swingin’ Around Town event.

More to Come

The next lesson and dance are scheduled for Friday, October 4, 2013.  More information will be posted as it becomes available.  If you don’t want to wait that long to start dancing, it’s not too late to sign up for the Lindy Hop series that starts this evening!

Swingin’ Around Town Update

19 Sep

Charleston Lesson

Remember to come to the Swingin’ Around Town lesson and dance tomorrow, at 7:00!  Tomorrow’s pre-dance lesson will be a 1920’s Swing dance style called the Charleston.  For this special session, the lesson time will be extended to an hour instead of the normal half hour.

For an example of some great Charleston moves, check out the video below.

Live Band

Instead of tomorrow’s dance being DJ’d as previously thought, a new band called The Angel Adams Preservation Society will be playing.  The dance begins at 8:00 and the band is scheduled to start at 8:30.  Since there is a live band, there will be an extra $2 charge for admission to the dance.
