Swing Dance Workshops and Masquerade Dance

On Saturday January 31st we are getting the new year off to a swingin’ start with a day of workshops and our first Galway Swing Masquerade Dance. The workshops and masquerade dance will be in The Galway Rowing Club, Woodquay.

Workshops

1pm – Aerials

Our first workshop of 2015 will be one of our ever popular Aerials workshop to put some air time in your dancing.
Aerials don’t require any gymnastic or dance experience and everyone is welcome. You will need to come with a partner to this class but they do not need to be a dancer just someone you trust!

3pm – The Charleston Stroll

Solo routines are a fun and easy way to improve your dancing. They are danced at Swing dance events the world over and always go down a storm when we teach them. Solo strolls are taught from scratch and no previous experience or knowledge is required.
The Charleston stroll is a great stroll if you are new to solo dancing. It is packed with fun jazz moves that will expand your repertoire of moves and get you laughing (trust us!)
This workshop is suitable for all levels.


Costs: Aerials €15 Charleston Stroll €10 or €20 for both.

Masquerade Dance

9.30pm – The Galway Rowing Club – €10
On Saturday night we will have our first masquerade dance.
Catch up with your dancing friends, meet swing dancers from different classes and of course get out on the dance floor to your favourite Lindy Hop tunes – Wear a mask, paint one on or get creative – it is up to you.

February Swing Dance Workshop Day

Our workshop days are returning on Saturday February 22nd in The Galway Rowing Club, Woodquay with aerials and collegiate shag. These days are focused on helping you add a little something extra to your dancing repertoire. This month we have a very exciting line-up of high flying aerials and a vintage shag dancing workshop with Sarah Crawford and Eamonn O’Sullivan.

Collegiate Shag – The Basic Steps 1pm

Collegiate Shag is known as a fast dance of fun, fancy footwork. It’s a great dance to have in your repertoire for spicing up fast songs with extra-crazy moves. Even the most basic Shag steps are a lot of fun to do and watch, and many people find it easier to dance Shag to fast music than Lindy Hop.  This class will focus on teaching you the basics of shag dancing and a few fun moves that you can bring into your practice.

Aerials at 11am – €15pp / partner required

Shag Dance Workshop at 1pm – €10pp Or save money get both classes for €20pp
