In this workshop you will learn one of the coolest rock ‘n swing dances called Boogie Woogie. Boogie Woogie is a great show dance due to its fast tempo and showy figures but it is also often practiced in social dance floors with slower tempo and great atmosphere. This workshop is an open level so anyone with or without swing dance (or any dance) background can join. We start with basics and during the two days we proceed to slightly more advanced level. However the tempo will remain relatively slow so that everyone can participate and concentrate on learning the technique. You will get sweaty though, it’s Boogie. Please bring with you a water bottle and indoor shoes!
NOTE! If you went to last year’s Boogie Woogie workshop you will notice that we rehearse some in the beginning before moving on to new stuff.
Social Boogie Woogie (the focus of this workshop) you can find shortly for example from here.
