August 2013 Curriculum: Charleston!! (By Request)


Brief Overview

Class Dates: August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29

Welcome to the month of August 2013. It’s Charleston time again, this time with emphasis on Tandem and Shadow Charleston (by request) (as we didn’t get to in our March 2013 Charleston month!)

Here is an overview of what’s going on:

Leon James and Willa Mae Ricker Tandem Charleston

Here are the details:

For Lindy 1 the first two weeks are “start from scratch” as well as including a lot of fundamentals so a wide variety of levels will benefit. The latter-week variation (weeks 3 and 4) we will teach Tandem/Shadow Charleston

For Lindy 2 we will do an entire month of 30′s Charleston. We’ll start the first two weeks with all Tandem/Shadow Charleston including some fancy exits and entries. From there we’ll go on to more Tandem/Same-Side Charleston but opening it up to a face-to-face. Then back to more Tandem Charleston!
