Event description
3-Week Smooth Style Lindy Hop Workshop for dancers who "play seriously."

About this Event

Our jitterbuggin' 1950's style swing dance workshop is back for those of us who love both swing dancing AND rockabilly music!

This special and exclusive workshop series features the style of swing dancing featured in 1950's teen-rock musicals such as "Don't Knock The Rock!", "Shake, Rattle, and Rock!", and "The Girl Can't Help It." (Look up those movies on YouTube, to see what we we're teaching.)

"Smooth Style Lindy," originally a Big Band era dance style, was adapted during the Rock n' Roll era for use in film to spectacular results and it's those adaptations that we teach in our workshop series.

Bay Area dancer and performer Mike Quebec will put his 25 plus years of teaching experience of this rarely-seen-in-the-Bay-Area dance style at your service! (Check out his dance videos, also on You Tube, specifically at channel Esperanza Quebec, as well as on Instagram and on Facebook under "Michael Quebec.")

If you want to look flashy and fancy while dancing to fun, rockin' tunes, then this is the workshop for you!

* Class sizes will be limited, to ensure quality of instruction. Discounts are for early registrations, couples, and returning students, who have previously taken our workshops. As we gradually, develop dancers who are skilled in this style, eventually, we will be hosting regular weekend vintage dance events for traditional Rockabilly style swing dancing in the Tri-City area.

* This workshop is NOT for the casual dancer, but for serious-minded swing dance students and vintage lifestyle enthusiasts. For casual, "easy-to-do" swing dance classes, please check out our Tuesday East Coast Swing classes "Swing Dancing For Beginners" at: https://fremontk12.asapconnected.com.
