Swingstreet Summer Class: Accents & musicality

Have you ever looked at lindy hoppers and wondered how they get those ‘cool accents’ in their dancing, to follow the music? Well, it’s by practicing it! We all favour a certain ‘action’ when we make accents. What happens when you challenge yourself to new things? Can you follow? Can you adapt? Can you use it in social dancing?

We will listen to songs, and commit to certain musicality moments, then interpret with our bodies (accents, steps, stomps, arms, upper/lower body) to connect what we hear, with what we show.

We will do things solo as well as in lead/follow.
Your brain will be trying to ‘make it work’, so be ready to control your body.

It would be great if you can bring a partner so we have a nice balance in leaders and followers.
