May 4th Swing Workshop: Connection and Communication

We’re back with the next installment of our workshop swing series!
Dance is a language. To master the art you must master not only talking, but effective listening. Communication is more than just your vocabulary. For this one day workshop we’ll dive into what it takes to be a good partner dancer in your Swing and Lindy.


For this special lindy workshop we’re bringing a guest instructor all the way from Minnesota! Teaching with local instructor Aaron will be the illustrious Erica French! Erica has been dancing, performing and choreographing for 4 years. She is currently one of the lead organizers for Army of Follows, a unity project to bring Follows together from around the nation to unite and encourage them. She’s also really, really, really good at dancing and wins competitions.


Ready to jump from Zero to Hero? From Padawan to Jedi (or Sith…)?


  • We’ll work on a variety of fun and creative moves and shapes in swing to add to your vocabulary, including fun turns and swingout ideas
  • We’ll share some of the things that make dances on an advance level so rich and rewarding
  • You’ll develop better body awareness and control through a wide range of techniques with yourself and with a partner
  • Become more effective in your role as a lead or follow through drills and developing your skills
Having a basic understanding of pull throughs, sugar pushes, and swingouts will help you tremendously in this workshop as they are shapes we will be exploring from this new perspective.
