Targeted to our youngest Lindy Hoppers, 5-7 years old, these session will focus on solo movement exploring space, rhythm, musicality and group movement. Older children attending the full day or 3 day program are encouraged to come to this session to warmup, build their skills and develop social and emotional empathy.
Session 2: 10.30-12.30
10.30am-12.30pm – 8-13yrs (encouraged to come for both sessions)
Participants will be introduced to vernacular jazz movement and music, exploring the culture, music and context of Swing Dancing and Lindy Hop. Session will be tailored to the students present, with the possibility of partner work, solo dancing, choreography and creativity depending on the group, in addition to extension of the topics covered in the morning sessions.
There will be a 10 minute break during both sessions. Please ensure your child/ren bring snacks and a drink bottle.
Participants will need to wear flat, comfortable shoes (preferably sand shoes or sneakers), and bringing spare t-shirts are encouraged if participating in the whole day.
