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!
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.
Here it is. I’m wearing my award from Swing Fling the past weekend. We went over a lot of information and had fun trying some new stuff. We really packed both classes and had fun playing with variations including the beginning class. Hope you all can join us next time at Brix.
Another wonderful Tuesday at Brix with Guest Instructor and DJ Kristen Shaw!
I was traveling for work and Kristen and my wife Bridget held down the fort and taught a wonderful set of classes. The beautiful duo had a blast with the local crowd. Everyone also seemed to enjoy the new drink specials at the bar! Stay tuned for more video recaps every week. But come join us in Belleville when you have a free Tuesday evening.
