By request of several Advanced Lindy Hop dancers: A WCS crash course workshop, just for Advanced Lindy Hop dancers! We’ll start with what you already know, which is a lot! And then focus on the differences. In quick order, you’ll be a genuinely good WCS dancer, ready to come WCS dancing with confidence. And ready to steal cool WCS techniques & moves into your Lindy Hop.
Ken dances WCS and some Lindy Hop, and teaches WCS. Ken sez, “I’m assuming your Lindy Hop is better than mine, and I am grateful that you are willing to join me for this. If I bungle anything I say about Lindy Hop, please jump in and correct me! I look forward to a mutually respectful and joyful workshop with all of you!”
- Because WCS has techniques – and very cool moves – that Lindy doesn’t. And vice versa. Learn them, dance them, steal them!
- Soul music night at the big Lindy events! WCS to the rescue!
- Because WCS & Lindy Hop are surprisingly close cousins. So we can start from where you are, leveraging the similarities & focusing on the differences. Master WCS fast, like magic.
- Because dancing WCS is pretty fun once you get the hang of it.
- And because a few Adv. Lindy Hop dancers asked me to do this. So this 1st time, it’s limited to Adv Lindy dancers only, for tight focus and speedy learning. Thanks for understanding. Please, please – Forward this to all your Adv Lindy Hop friends who might be interested! Thanks!
