Int/Adv Lindy Hop Workshop

with James Bianco & Natalia Eristavi

12:00pm, Saturday, June 10, 2017



Many Swing dancers struggle to Lindy Hop to music that nears or exceeds 200 beats per minute. The dancing gets messy, the dancers get winded, limbs flail, you get smacked in the face, the sweat flies into your-you get the idea. 

This raises the question, how do you dance fast with your partner while also avoiding the above outcomes? Well, there is a simple adage that sums it up: 

To dance fast, you have to dance fast! 

But how do you dance fast? Let us help you!* Natalia and James will demonstrate ideas that will help to improve both your individual movement and your partnered connection at higher tempos. (Yes, contrary to recent Orange County Swing dance history, you CAN Lindy to very fast music!) 

We’ll see you there, so make sure you wear deodorant and bring extra shirts, because we are going to sweat! 

*We’ll start by dancing fast!

No partner needed!


Class Schedule (12:00 PM - 4:00 PM)

  • 12:15 PM  Fast Lindy Routine: Natalia and James will teach a brief routine with some classic choreography to get the heart rate up.
