Super Swing Tuesdays @Brix Video Recap Aug 18

After a wonderful vacation I have finally been able to catch up and get these wonderful videos for you all to review. I apologize that I was extremely tired in this video as I had just gotten off the plane and just made it back in time for class. I hope you enjoy. The first video is a rough syllabus of basic patterns in West Coast Swing. There are lots of interpretations of how many core basics there are. These are my set patterns. In the demonstration I did not choreograph to phrase to the music. The goal was simply to go through as many of the basics as possible. The second video you will see a demonstration of musicality and styling as influenced and inspired by some of my favorite peer champion dancers. Enjoy!

Super Swing Tuesdays With Guest Instructor Kristen Shaw August 11th

I was on vacation in California and my wonderful students Kristen Shaw and Andrew Hayden did an amazing job holding the fort down at Brix for our weekly dance. Holding with my themes and theory, they taught a wonderful lesson on turn location for the beginners, and consistent movement for the intermediate and advanced class. Stay tuned for more videos to come. But definitely join us in Jersey for our dance at Brix.
