To Do: Lindy Hop Dance Workshop

Because it's National Dance Day and you must celebrate!

This Saturday, July 28th, is National Dance Day and, of course, Philly is celebrating. Philly’s Lindy and Blues dance organization is hosting the July Lindy Hop Crash Course Workshop in Center City. During the high-energy class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of how to shake your tail feather in a Lindy Hop-esque way. Meaning: you’ll leave knowing six-count footwork and turns, swing outs from closed and open, and the Lindy circle.

The workshop is geared toward total beginners, or those dancers who need a quick brush up.  And if you’re flying solo, don’t worry; partners aren’t required for this class. If you have a great time, stick around and show off your new skills at the social dance, which will follow the workshop. For a full schedule of the day, wardrobe suggestions and to register, click here.

$40/$25 for students, Saturday, July 28 from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., The Ethical Society Building, 1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia.
