Dance Experience

Atlanta Varsity Showdown

10/30/15 – 11/01/15

Volunteered at the registration desk Friday night

Beginner classes attended as a lead:

  • “Adding on to the swingout” with Michael G. and Jaya
  • “Building Your Basics (Lindy Hop)” with Michael B. and Dee
  • “Partnered Charleston” with Michael and Jaya

Intermediate classes attended as a follow:

  • “Solo movement” with Falty. This was a rhythm class. He used a metronome and had us dancing on various beats, emphasizing the 1, 2, 3, or 4 of a measure and moving to eighth, quarter, half, or whole notes.
  • “Getting Rhythm: How both partners can independently emphasize rhythm in all the spaces of a dance” with Jenny as a follow.
  • “Solo-mazing” with Falty
  • Intermediate “Bal-Swing inspired” with Dan and Jenny.

Teacher Training classes:

  • Michael B. and Dee. Dee talked about some similarities between teaching elementary school students and dance students. Focus a class on dance shapes vs footwork vs energy. Then they had us analyze a move and try to figure it out in groups of 6.
  • Michael G. and Jaya. They talked about influencing people by being enthusiastic about it.
