Big Apple Workshop, Wednesdays July 30th, August 6th and 13th, 7:15pm
Are you interested in learning different Jazz steps? If so, the Big Apple Workshop will teach you tons!! The Big Apple is an advanced stroll without any repetition, so expect a challenge, however you’ve got to start sometime, as this is the grand-daddy of all the strolls in the Lindy Hop community. Breaking it up into three one-hour classes, on Wednesdays, July 30th, August 6th, and August 13th, 7:15pm, for one hour, it’s hoped we’ll get through all the material. Click HERE for more details.
