Lindy 3: Slow Lindy

at Church of Our Saviour in Brookline
Tuesdays 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM — May 15, May 22, May 29, June 5, June 12, June 19
more info

Make your slow Lindy delicious and gooey. When the music slows down but is still swingin', we have more time to fill the space with interesting body movement. We'll work on the body mechanics that you need to make your slow swingouts and other Lindy vocabulary look and feel great when the BPMs are low.

Lindy 3 classes are intended for students who have completed (and are confident in) all elements of the Lindy 2 curriculum (which includes at least one month of Fundamentals). The topic for these classes changes every month at the discretion of the instructors. 

More about our secial guest instructors Ruth and Mike! Ruth and Mike love teaching dance. They work exceptionally well as a teaching partnership and are internationally renowned for their dynamic energy, precise explanations, entertainment value, and ability to make very detailed dance technique fun to learn. They are among the most sought-after instructors in the Blues dance world, and they have a growing reputation in the Lindy Hop scene.

They both love carrot juice, smoky Scotch whisky, and philosophical discussions but differ on the use of the oxford comma. They have been known to fishtail in grocery stores and swing out in the aisles of moving trains. Students rave about their dynamic energy, precise explanations, entertainment value, and ability to make very detailed dance technique fun to learn.

Ever watch social dancers and wonder "What is that crazy move and how did they lead/follow it?" Sometimes it's a move from our vault of Lindy Hop repertoire . . . and sometimes it'ts just a result of playing around with lead/follow connection and seeing what happens! This class will break us out of our comfort zone of "step step triple step, step step triple step," and into a land of asking, responding, momentum, rate, rotation, timing, and more!

Lindy 3 classes are intented for students who have completed (and are confident in) all elements of the Lindy 2 curriculum (which includes at least one month of Fundamentals). The topic for these classes changes every month at the discretion of the instructors. This classcan count towards completion of the Lindy 3 "Moving Beyond Moves" requirement.
