March 2013 Curriculum


Brief Overview

Class Dates: March 7, 14, 21, 28

Welcome to our third month! March will be Charleston month for both Lindy 1 and Lindy 2. Here is an overview of what’s going on:

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 side-by-side dancing including Charleston!

For Lindy 2 we will do an entire month on 30′s Charleston. We will teach Charleston in a variety of ways such as transitions in-and-out, mini-choreography, as well as our “patterns” classes where we will teach a similar lead with multiple endings and then have the leads “chews” their Charleston. Ah ha ha ha ha. Get it? “Choose” … “Chews” ? Ah ha ha ha
