Classes

2 hours of Balboa
1 hour of Authentic Jazz
1 Special Class on "The Science of Lindy Hop"

TWO TRACKS: Intermediate+ and Advanced

Level Descriptions:

Intermediate+:
You have fallen in love with swing dancing, and are now completely hooked. You don't worry about things like 6-count and 8-count, but just dance to the music. You have started to add in some new rhythms and shapes to your dancing, have dabbled in some solo jazz, and are ready to take on new technique challenges. You social dance regularly, and attend workshops, classes, and events out of town whenever you can. 

Advanced:
You are more comfortable on the dance floor than off it. You love working on the subtle techniques and rhythms of Lindy Hop and solo jazz and are looking for a challenge. At a social dance you are the one starting a solo jam in the corner or swinging out to the fast version of Jumpin’ at the Woodside. You likely teach on a regular basis, perform with a dance team, and may have won a competition or two.

JULIE KIRALY:
Julie met Lindy Hop in her first year of University at the UofA Club's Fair, and was instantly hooked. Dedicating her life to dancing, she has spent the last 15+ years travelling across the globe to study Jazz Roots dances and meet new Lindy Hoppers, attending dance camps in North America and Europe. Julie teaches, competes, performs, and travels as much as she can. She loves inspiring her passion for dancing in others, and creating wacky moves and routines with her equally wacky dance friends. In her spare time Julie likes to eat chocolate, watch GoT, and hang out with her kitties.
