Thu Jan 31 - Fri Feb 01, 2019
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Lesson 9:00 p.m. to 10(?) Open Practice (We can go till later as long as students are still dancing!) $32 for four week months/$40 for five week months or if doing drop ins daily, as opposed to registering for the month, $10 per drop-in.
Starting in January 2019, we’ll be hosting NEW Smooth Style Lindy Hop lessons at Slim Fitness in Newark (5437 Central Avenue, Suite #3), with Open Social Dance Practice afterwards!
To kick off our new series for 2019, participants who bring TWO guests to our first lesson on January 3, 2019, TO JOIN FOR THE MONTH, get HALF OFF MONTHLY DUES! (We want to make our scene grow for the Fremont and surrounding areas.)
Our approach to our classes will be with the following assumptions:
1. Students want QUALITY dance instruction at AFFORDABLE rates.
2. Students want to ENJOY themselves in an ENERGETIC and FRIENDLY environment while learning.
3. Students want the opportunity to SOCIALIZE in a SAFE and COMFORTABLE environment.
4. For specifically the Fremont, Newark, and Union City Area, students want an enjoyable swing dance activity that is LOCAL and CONVENIENT.
It is with those four approaches that we will conduct our Lindy Hop classes at Slim Fitness.
The classes and open dance will be open to ALL AGES (so teens, who previously had a difficult time finding a swing dance venue that was open to them, will definitely be welcome here.)
Our classes are unique for the San Francisco Bay Area, in that our swing dance style is the Dean Collins or “Smooth Style” Lindy Hop, which is rarely taught in Northern California, yet easily adaptable when danced with other dancers trained in the more prevalent (for the Bay Area) “Savoy” Lindy Hop or in modern West Coast Swing.
And, our style is used in conjunction with energetic and fast-paced traditional rockabilly and jump blues music styles.
To foster a sense of community, many of our participants (and our instructor) will be bringing food as part of an OPTIONAL potluck for the open social dance practice (NOTE, the potluck is NOT mandatory. Participants can join the classes and the social dancing even if they do not participate in the potluck. It’s just another fun aspect for students who wish to share and participate.)
* As we make the classes grow, we will be opening up more nights, as well as hosting live music events and specialty vintage dance workshops.
The buttons for online registration at www.rockinswing.com/events, for both monthly registration or per-lesson drop-in fees, are available for students to pay online. However, as they are done through Pay Pal, there is an additional 2.9% and 30 cents added to the respective fees when using the Pay Pal buttons. To avoid the service fees, payments for classes sent through Facebook messenger to Michael Quebec will also be accepted (Facebook messenger does NOT charge for payments made using their “send money” feature.)
Payment can also be made at the door, in person, but we request that all fees done at the door be in exact change.
