CIRQUE DU SWING
PERFORMANCE COACHING

10 Saturdays
February 24 to April 28
10:20 to 11PM (during the social dance)

This is the most fun swing dance experience offered; well worth the effort to participate. Look smashing on the dance floor! Must have attended or be enrolled in a 6 week Intermediate Course. If not enrolled in an Intermediate course- payment for the DJ Dance required. Just show up with a partner by 10:15pm to participate. Partner required:) There is very  little instruction provided, mostly just coaching while the social dance is going on.. From the videos below you choose some EASY moves to work on with your partner. Contact retroswingkid@gmail.com to book your coaching assistance before you arrive. Individual creativity is encouraged. Dips and Tricks OK, but aerials NOT OK. Aerials require spotting and more intensive instruction than can be provided during the social dance..
