In this new class, both leaders and followers will be guided through a new way to think about their Lindy Hop - with a focus on expressing your personal interpretation of the music. We’ll explore outside of practiced combos and variations, and instead work on improvising our own rhythms and shapes in harmony with the music. As we focus on our connection to the music, we’ll develop better personal movement and groove, and override our dancing habits to make more authentic choices in each moment we’re on the dance floor.
