In this special topic workshop, we’ll be using simple swing patterns and movements to dig deep into fundamental connection building and partnering in the closed position. These level of granularity will be applicable across Balboa, Shag, Lindy, or most any other social dance.

In this special-topic workshop, we will break down turns and turn types to the lowest levels of form, shape and frame. From graceful turns down a line, to quick turns executed entirely from frame connections, this turn fundamentals workshop should help dancers learn more about how different groups of turns work.

Both of these two workshops are based on techniques/concepts we have worked on for over a decade. They way we dance in closed, and our turn are an integral part of our partnership and style.
