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 a 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!
11-13 Basic steps, leading and following, basic moves in open position and in closed position, breaks.
