How much do you want to improve as a dancer ... and how quickly do you want to get to that level? 02/28/2020 we will find out.
Special guest instructor ...(See below) Anybody who has been to one of my classes has heard me say that I firmly believe the reason those of us in the C&W Dancers, who learned WC Swing in the late 80's & early 90's, learned this dance so quickly and leaped right to the top levels, is because we all learned line dancing first ... when it was big and in every bar & club in the area.
We already knew Triple Steps, Tap Steps, Spins & Turns, "BALANCE", Direction changes, Footwork, Kick-Ball-Change, Sailor Shuffle, and a variety or other often used dance techniques. All we had to do is learn to lead & follow, and in some cases ... anchor steps. The foundation for dancing was already there.
Over the years ... top instructors like Jo Thompson, Michael Kiehm, Robert Royston & others developed line dances specifically designed with West Coast Swing in mind. Enter Johanna Barnes ... Things you might not know: Johanna began line and couples dancing in 1994. She has learned more than a dozen rhythms of dance as well as thousands of line dances; has many popular line dances of her own, and choreography recognized as classics world-wide (socially and used as competition selections).
She has two UCWDC World Championship titles, as well as being awarded hundreds of other top placements in line dance, original line dance choreography, two-step, west coast swing, and 7 other couples dance formats (especially ProAm, ProAm Spotlight, and Jack & Jill). She spent nearly 4 years competing with Robert Royston and another 2 with Gregory (& Lemery) Rollinscott. She's been an instructor, competitor, and social dancer throughout North America, and abroad, including Ireland, Scotland, England, Canada, Wales, and special invitations to Norway, and Finland.
On 02/28/2020, ... 8PM ... Johanna will be teaching a West Coast Swing based line dance at the Polish Home in Windsor Locks, CT. What's great about this is you can practice it at home ... without a partner ... or anybody criticizing or "Teaching" on the dance floor (Meaning unsolicited advice from people who don't know any more than you ... sometimes less).
You will be amazed how quickly your level of expertise will rise. Johanna will also be DJ'ing for as long as she chooses. She has an interesting collection of music from USA and overseas.

Big props last Tuesday to Angelique Early and Billy Montgomery for great classes as always!! And to Tony Hurtado for being a great host!

Also, a tremendous thanks to everyone that came out for the lessons, along with the amazing dance party that I got to DJ for!!
And also the honor of performing with my awesome partner Kristen Shaw, our routine from Philly Swing Classic!! It's truly an honor and one of the best nights ever, that wouldn't be possible without you guys!!
Definitely need to get this song in the rotation!
Want to keep dancing into Hump Day? 🐪 Join us in New Haven for weekly Wednesday west coast swing lessons and social dancing!
