JazzMAD invites you to a 3-hour intensive workshop to learn Sharon Davis’s following technique and philosophy from the ground up.
What is this class about?
This is a 3-hour workshop for Lindy Hop followers only, which Sharon hopes will be empowering and inspiring! In these three hours, Sharon will walk you through her following philosophy (Followsophy!) which will lay out a pathway for becoming your best possible dancing self. With technical drills and exercises you will assess your mechanical dance skills, and leave with a practical checklist of things to work on. We will work with partners in class, but no leading ability is necessary. We’ll learn how to set mechanical skills on autopilot to free up your mind for the sweet stuff. Find out Sharon’s priorities when it comes to rhythm, musicality, connection and style. And learn how to kick insecurities and anxieties out of your dancing, to start dancing in the moment and expressing your unique self. Male followers are very welcome! This workshop is suitable for any Lindy Hop follower who is confident with their fundamentals.
What should I wear/bring?
Be comfortable! Wear comfortable clothes that don’t restrict your movement, and bring a sweater. Wear whatever shoes you typically Lindy Hop in – flats or heels are both welcome. Our floor is quite slippery. This is a three-hour workshop so bring a bottle of water and snacks if needed. There will be handouts – bring a pen if you want to take notes.
Can I pay at the door? Do I have to pre-book?
You can reserve your place by pre-booking here using credit/debit card, OR you can pay cash at the door (if spaces are available). Just bring correct change and give it to the teacher at the start of class.
When you arrive: Press the buzzer to be let in. If you are early, wait in the lounge area on the ground floor. When it is time for class, head up to the top floor studio. There are toilets/changing rooms on the top floor.
