Swing 3 & 4

Grab Bag Nov18


Expand your toolkit of fun concepts and dynamic movements to take your dancing to the next level.

See new movements. Wrestle with new concepts. Transform your dancing. Welcome to the Grab Bag Dance Revolution with Ryan and Warren.

Swing 3: You have the BUG. You social dance regularly, have attended weekly classes for around two years and have a good appreciation of the fundamental stuff. You are now able to incorporate musicality into your dancing and not just do steps. Your repertoire of moves is no longer your priority - the physics of lead and follow is. You are ready to work on the nitty-gritty. Swing 3 isn’t WHAT to do or HOW to do it – it’s WHY.

By now you’ll be practicing Jazz steps in the mirror and are able to remember and confidently perform routines such as the Tranky Doo, Mama’s Stew and Shim Sham.

Swing 4: You’ll have been dancing at least 4 years and you’ll be just as happy spending an hour working on your Rock Step as you are Leading or Following at super fast tempos or lingeringly slow tempos. You’ll also have a good understanding of rhythm in dance, including a variety of syncopated footwork variations and be experienced in solo Jazz.

Swing 4 dancers are expected to know classic routines such as the Tranky Doo and The Big Apple Contest and happily show ’em off whenever the opportunity arises!
