Listening and Dancing to the Music with Rusty Frank

PRICE: $20 ADVANCE REGISTRATION; $25 AT THE DOOR

Saturday, May 27, 1:20-2:20pm

The old saying "Dancing is music made visible" is what makes Lindy Hop special. We as swing dancers make our dancing reflect the music. But how do we do it? How do we interpret the music right at the moment we are dancing? In this class you’ll get some “inside” ideas that will really get your more connected to the music while you’re dancing, even if you’ve never heard the song before. This class, open to all levels, is taught by Swing Dance Hall of Fame member Rusty Frank.
