This will be our final meeting of Fall Quarter 2013!
It's been a fantastic year for TLC. In addition to continuing to offer our classes for free every week, we hosted two workshops and three completely free live-band dances. Given that we only started back in the spring quarter of 2011, I think we've made remarkable strides in our vision to make the lindy hop community of Santa Barbara bigger and better.
To everyone who has been supportive and encouraging, TLC thanks you whole-heartedly!
I hope that everyone can join us this week. First we'll be teaching an all-levels solo jazz routine known as the Shim Sham. While there are a few variations out there, we'll be teaching the one that was choreographed by Frankie Manning because it's the most popular in the global community. It's a line dance that you'll be able to take with you anywhere, almost like a language. Robbie and I, for example, danced it on the Great Wall of China with several Beijing swing dancers.
After the Shim Sham, we'll play with vernacular jazz in our partner dancing and give you some ways to think about making your dancing more fun and musical. I can't promise that you'll be dancing like Dawn Hampton right after, but you'll be on your way to that level of awesome.
