|This Friday 10/21 at Hollywood Ballroom
Over 200 dancers make this DC's Largest Weekly West Coast Swing Party. The diversity offers a great experience for dancers of all skill and experience levels. This month's beginner group has been great fun. Lot's of progress made and 2 more weeks to go! If you're new to this scene or have been dancing for decades this is a party you can look forward to EVERY week.
BEGINNER CLASS SERIES Introduction to 8 count whips and review of the 6 count basics. Experienced dancers are encouraged to arrive early to meet new dancers. It's great practice for all levels
OCTOBER INTERMEDIATE SERIES! with Jody & Abby Moscaritolo
Collaborative connection and flow will focus on quality body movement and smooth transitioning from one movement to another. This directly translates into the partnership of the dance, opening new possibilities of communication between partners. Communicating through movement will help in collaborating throughout a dance, allowing for more opportunities to become creative within the partnership and with the music.
Abby has an extensive dance background spanning over 20 years. West Coast Swing has been her passion of focus for the past eight years, and her teaching spotlights quality of movement, partnering, and having fun.
Jody has been teaching ballroom and partner dancing since 2005. His teaching niche in WCS focuses largely on advanced collaborative connection and momentum technique, applying music theory to "big picture" musicality and improvised choreography, and smooth transitional energy and movement. Jody's philosophy about West Coast Swing is that it's the most fun when both partners get to "play" and contribute to the creativity and he infuses that philosophy into his teaching!
A fantastic line up of guest instructors has been confirmed to present intermediate level class series on future Fridays!
