SATURDAY 20/05/23 => Blues beginner and intermediate tracks @ Sterinerschool Leuven Wijgmaal
SUNDAY 21/05/2023 => Lindy Hop intermediate and advanced tracks @ Appeltuinschool Leuven
At this level, there is no need for any blues dancing experience but it won’t hurt if you’ve had a few workshops under your belt. If you’ve already had several months of teasers or participated in previous jamborees, this beginner’s group is meant for you.
You will be able to consolidate whatever basics you have, and our teachers will help you enrich your vocabulary and explore the many genres, rhythms and tempos.
At this level, you would have had a steady harvest of blues dance classes and would have taken part in several dance workshops and festivals. You are also a blues music afficionado.
The basics are well integrated and your vocabulary is rich, which you demonstrate on social occasions. You have already developed your skills as either lead or follow and you have grasped how important is each partner’s role in blues dancing.
The intermediate level will take your skills up to the next and you will enlarge your vocabulary and refine the basic movements. Our teachers will help you perceive the musicality of blues music in its variations of style.
You’ve mastered the basic charleston, triple steps, groove walks, kick steps on basic patterns like send-out, tuck-turn, change places, circle, and know the difference between dancing in a 6 and an 8 count. You are hungry for more.
Your life is a mix of parties, classes and workshops. You are a confident leader and follower and you can improvise to fast music. Your own dance style and personality shine through which makes the difference for a more personal musicality and mood expression.
You master the different skills needed in Lindy Hop in either slow or fast tempos.
