What's even more fun than swing dancing in a couple?  Community swing dances!  Shim-sham is the classic swing line dance from the 1930's that is done at almost every swing dance in Boulder (and Denver too), and you've been wanting to learn it!  Swing Rueda is a circle dance based on standard Lindy-Hop moves where we change partners around the circle.  It is the latest thing to catch on in the swing world!

 

  • 2:00 – 3:10 – Shim-Sham!  No experience necessary, both Saturdays we will teach the whole dance.
  • 3:15– 3:40 – Lindy Swing Out warm-up.  A must if you want to take the Rueda class and your Swing Out is rusty.  Highly recommended.
  • 3:45 – 4:55 - Beginning Swing Rueda – on the 13th we will cover the basics of Reuda, the swing-out, break, reverse, da me, and a few other basic moves.  You should have some Lindy-Hop or swing dance experience to make the most of this class.  This class is progressive; the second class on the 20th will build on the first.
  • 5:00 – 5:30 – open dancing.  We’ll call a Rueda and a shim-sham.
