Swingin' into Spring Lindy Hop Workshop

Swingin’ into Spring Lindy Hop Workshop

Jump into a Lindy Hop workshop featuring fantastic visiting instructors and a live band night! The TRUSU Swing Dance Club is pleased to present the Swingin’ into Spring workshop with help from Lindy in the Loops and with the generous support of the TRU Student Union. This event is open to both students and the wider Kamloops community.

Our wonderful visiting instructors are Read Fenton (Edmonton) and Laura Kwun (Vancouver). Benny & the Good Men (Vancouver) will be playing live music at the social dance!

Pick your track – each one is a single day so you can hop with enthusiasm and energy – and come on Saturday night either way because there’s nothing quite like a live band night!

Workshop classes:
Saturday, March 30th: aimed at new or fairly new dancers, you’ll learn or improve on the basics of Lindy Hop steps and patterns, work on musicality and expression, and get a good dose of fun and silliness, too! (Desert Gardens)

Sunday, March 31st: aimed at more experienced Lindy Hop dancers, you’ll spend some time on the fundamentals and move into variations and styling, musicality and expression, and maybe some performance as well! (Akimbo Dance Studios)

Both tracks will be focused on partner dancing Lindy Hop, but may include solo elements.

Live band night:
Saturday, March 30th: a social dance featuring Benny & the Good Men, this is sure to be a good time. This dance is open to you whether you are attending a workshop day or only the dance, and is a great time to try out your skills, experience amazing music, meet new friends, and have fun. (Desert Gardens)

Workshop attendees get to wrap it all up with a fun potluck dinner on Sunday evening =)
