Big Apple Course 5th November

The Big Apple is an awesome Solo Jazz choreography by Frankie Manning! It is done world wide and all the best dancers know it.

It’s notoriously fast and difficult to remember – BUT- we’ve got the perfect solution to remember it. We’ll take it in chunks and have plenty of time to practice at home, and lots of practice each week.

So whether the Big Apple is entirely new to you or you’ve learnt bits of it here and there this six week course will solidify it in your memory.

Every Thursday
5th November – 10th December
8.30 – 9.30pm
@the Dance Studio Leeds
Whole Course: £30
Do not have to attend whole course (see individual prices below)
Email: swingdanceleeds@gmail.com to book

Tranky Doo Short Course 22nd October

Knee SlapThe Tranky Doo is a classic jazz routine from the 1930’s. A step up from the Shim Sham but not as tricky as the Big Apple – this fun and energetic jazz routine is just right!

Thursdays 22nd + 29th October
8.30 – 9.30pm
£10  @ the dance studio leeds
No partner required
Some jazz step knowledge is preferable but not necessary.

There will be plenty of opportunities to dance this routine as it is stereotypically done to the Dipsy Doodle which is often played at some point at any large camp as well as a lot of social dances. This course will break down each step but will move quickly onto the next.

Book in advance by emailing swingdanceleeds@gmail.com

Here’s a nice video of the Tranky Doo if you want to see what’s in store!
