Charleston, Jazz & Blues Dance Workshop with Denise Steele
Charleston, Jazz & Blues Dance Workshops
with Denise Steele
Saturday, MARCH 26:
2 - 3:30 pm ROARING 20's CHARLESTON & VERNACULAR JAZZ DANCE
Break out the Flapper Dresses and Top Hats! The 20's and 30's gave birth to the Charleston and Lindy Hop which have deeply influenced Hip Hop and Social dances today. These dances have used many vernacular Jazz steps popular in the 20's such as Squat Charleston, Shorty George, Susie Q, and Truckin. We will learn a fun routine implementing a variety of authentic Charleston & Vernacular Jazz steps, emphasizing the correct styling and technique for solo and partner dancing.
3:45 - 5 pm SWING BLUES
Denise has been pioneering this 20's style of Blues dance since 1995, teaching locally and internationally. Her mix of Blues, Tango, Swing and Latin elements make for a very lyrical and different style of Blues. We will learn basics, and exciting new steps for a perfect way to end a Saturday afternoon of dance! This style is not bump and grind, it is a fun, comfortable style appropriate for most ages.
