Feb 10: Fancy Footwork Workshop
If you are looking for a few more ways to style your dancing with your own fancy feet join us in learning some variations you can add to common swing dance patterns. We may also develop our own signature moves so you can rock “The [Insert your name here]” on the social floor the next time you are out dancing! We will explore footwork options for both leaders and followers and discuss the challenges unique to each role.
Instructor: Margot Smith
Feb 27: Beginner Tap Workshop
Learn a few tap steps to add to your solo or partner dancing repetoire. In this one hour introductory workshop we will show you the basic steps that make up tap dancing and a few cool sequences to show off your fresh new steps. No tap shoes or experience required. If you have a learned basic tap before, this will be a great opportunity to work on the quality of your taps. There will be time after the workshop to continue practicing your new sounds. Give it a go!
