7PM-8PM: "Waltz Musicality 101" with Timmie and Talia

Musicality is the key to having epic, unforgettable dances, yet it's also often misunderstood and underutilized. Just what does it mean to "be musical" anyways? In this class we'll demystify musicality, breaking it down into concrete, practical elements that you can use in your dances regardless of your skill level. And of course, we'll also get to practice dancing to a whole lot of awesome waltz music along the way!

Prerequisites: Be comfortable with basic cross-step and rotary waltz.

8PM-9PM: "Intermediate Lindy Hop Musicality" with Caroline and Lewis

Lindy hop songs have a huge range of tempo and dynamics. We will be teaching a few fun variations with an emphasis on shaping the dance to fit the music. We’ll emphasize swingout styling, recognizing hits in the music, and nailing those hits with plenty of flash and dash.

Prerequisites: You should be able to execute a swingout comfortably.

I tried to write a song for flashygoodness, but somehow, nothing I tried really expressed what I wanted it to.  Maybe it's because I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to express in the first place?  Or maybe, I'm just really bad at expressing certain things, ...
