Hey Swing Club,
Hi everyone, I’m Khalid, the President of Swing Club at UVA. These are my weekly emails; you’ll find info about this weeks lessons and any events coming up in the next couple weeks.
About the club: We give weekly lessons in Lindy Hop, East Coast, and Charleston. It’s $15 a semester, but the first two lessons YOU attend are free so everyone should come try out our lessons. You don’t need a partner or past experience to dance. Be nice, ask people to dance, and yeah, thats all i’ve got.
Monday – First Lesson of the Semester
It took a bit to figure out room situations for this semester but we will be doing our normal Monday night meeting times. However, this week, our schedule will be…
Monday January 30th (today) – Aquatic and Fitness Center
Intermediate (Multi Purpose Room 1 – Downstairs): 8:15 – 9:15 – Review of Last Semester – If you did the beginner lesson last semester, come to this one and see what you can do. We will be going over Lindy hop again because we know you all forgot it.
Beginner (Multi Purpose Room 2 – Downstairs): 9:30 – 10:30 – Six Count Basics – This is where everyones gotta start at some point in their dancing life! Luke does a good job at teaching people with two left feet how to dance
Social Dance (MP2): 10:30 – 11:15 – This is where you practice what you learned with other people. It’s 100% the most important part of the night!
In future weeks, we will be using the following schedule…
Monday Nights – Aquatic and Fitness Center (AFC) Multi Purpose Room 1
8:15 – 9:15 – Intermediate
9:15 – 10:15 – Beginner
10:15 – Social Dance
University Salsa Fest
Swing dancing doesn’t exclude us from other dancing. Well the Salsa Club is hosting their University Salsa Fest. Nine workshops by professional instructors, followed by a night of dancing to live latin music and a DJ. We love our friends in the Salsa club (thanks for letting us perform at the salsa showcase), so lets get out there and show them what swing dancers are made of!
Our Swing friends in Charlottesville hold lessons every Wednesday. A group of us drive out and take lessons. If your interested in learning more, come ask me about it or check out their website at http://swingcville.org. It’s a new month also, meaning a new lesson series!
