Sunday’s Location:  4736 40th Ave SW Seattle, WA 98116

Instructor: Claire Carey
Workshop Descriptions: 4:00:

West Coast is known for it’s creativity and connection, but sometimes it can get a little dicey when we come up with ideas on the fly! We’re going to take a look at why those miscommunication happen, find new ways to give follows a clear voice while making sure leads can hear it, and use different exits and entrances to our favorite moves to make awesome new moments. If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been stuck having the same dances every night, this will help shake things loose

5:00:Ever felt like those super slow, groovy songs don’t feel like swing anymore?  In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to make your timing feel crisp and creative even when things get positively glacial.  We’ll use timing-malleable moves to find ways to dance  to both half and whole time, and find new styling opportunities we might not have yet considered in those juicy in between moments!  70 beats per minute will feel like a breeze.  Late night, here we come…
There are many facets to musicality in West Coast Swing.
