[Swing Club ] Most Important Lesson of the Year

Hey Swing Club,

Oh nose, it’s exam time (the reason why I’m sending this email on Monday morning instead of the regular sunday night). But even with exams, I can make a little room for some swing dance!

Anyways, what’s happening this week in Swing?

Monday Weekly Lessons
All lessons will be in the AFC MP1 (Downstairs)

Intermediate – 8:15-9:15 – Intermediate turns
Eh, not too much to explain for this one

Beginner – 9:15-10:15 – Introduction to Lindy Hop
This is hands down the most important lesson of the entire semester. Lindy hop is the core of swing dance and is what most of the intermediate class works on. And the best part, if you missed any of the past three weeks, this is a perfect place to start fresh.

Social Dance – 10:15-??:??
Break is next week so we wont have a chance to dance. So make this week count!

Remember, your first two lessons are free. But if you know you wanna join the club, bring $15 (or $25 for the whole year) and give the money to our treasurer Abhisheik.

Jammin on the James
There’s a big dance event coming up in three weeks in Richmond (weekend of October 15th). If you want to improve rapidly, I would highly recommend this. We have rides and housing available and once you tell us you are coming and buy your ticket, we can request funding from UVA and get you reimbursed for a large chuck of the cost.

More info on dates, times, lessons, etc can be found at http://www.jamminonthejames.com

Swing Cville
Our Swing friends in Charlottesville hold lessons every Wednesday. A group of us drive out and take lessons. If your interested in learning more after our interest meeting, come ask me about it or check out their website at http://swingcville.org

We have a carpool list, the sign up should be self explanatory.

[Swing Club ] More Lessons this Week

Hey Swing Club,

I think I danced too much yesterday. But I’m glad a lot of you came and stayed for most of the night. Also the VCU and JMU Swing clubs came as well so we gotta make sure to go to their dances as well!

Anyways, what’s happening this week in Swing?

Monday Weekly Lessons
All lessons will be in the AFC MP1 (Downstairs)

Intermediate – 8:15-9:15 – Swivels
The most important part of dancing is to look good. Okay, maybe not the most important part but it’s definitely up there.

Beginner – 9:15-10:15 – 6 Count Swing Part III: Even MORE turns
We should have warned follows; if you don’t like spinning, this might not be the type of dance for you.

Social Dance – 10:15-??:??
You’ve all learned more than enough to have some fun on the dance floor.

Remember, your first two lessons are free. But if you know you wanna join the club, bring $15 (or $25 for the whole year) and give the money to our treasurer Abhisheik.

[Swing Club ] Start of Weekly Lessons

Hey Swing Club,
We had a lot of people come to the interest meeting; I’ve never seen that room more packed. Props to Luke and Kelly for being able to teach that many people.

Anyways, what’s happening this week in Swing?

Monday Weekly Lessons
All lessons will be in the AFC MP1 (Downstairs)

Intermediate – 8:15-9:15 – Review of Beginner Series/Should I be in the intermediate class?
If you took the beginner series last year or think you are good enough to jump right into intermediate, come to this lesson. This’ll be a good way to gauge your abilities!

Beginner – 9:15-10:15 – Intro to 6 Count Swing
We will be covering what we learned in the interest meeting, but with much more detail and structure. You also get to meet one of our main instructors, Emily!

Social Dance – 10:15-??:??
Social Dance is a time to practice what you’ve learned in the lessons. The intermediate dancers are also there and are a great source of knowledge and practice if you want to get good quick. We have the room booked till 11:15 but we usually leave after like 30 mins and chill at crossroads or go to cookout.

Remember, your first two lessons are free. But if you know you wanna join the club, bring $15 (or $25 for the whole year) and give the money to our treasurer Abhisheik.

Fall Dance
I’ll come up with a better name for the dance next week. Until then, write Fall Dance in your calendar for Saturday September 17th. The Swing Club will be hosting a Free Swing dance in the ohill forum. By then, you’ll have 2 weeks of lessons under your belt and will be able to impress all your non-dancing friends.
