This course is ideal for those who want to dance but don’t know where to begin. Leader and Follower are both suitable for this course. Let’s throw yourself into the vibe and start dancing with Ramona!
A world-renowned Lindy Hop and Jazz dancer, and is considered a modern-day great. Her career has spanned more than 25 years and taken her to every continent on the globe. Ramona learned from and was class assistant for, Lindy Hop pioneer and ambassador, Frankie Manning. Ramona’s passion, joy, and delight has never wavered. Her classes are both fun, deep, stimulating, and informed. She loves swing music, and you will know about it!
8/12 ( Thu.) 7 pm – 8 pm (GMT+8)
Dancers will learn simple exercises to strengthen technique and build confidence. After going over the basics, we’ll explore variations and how to use them in the moment. In the end, it’s all about the music, and we’ll be honouring the groove of the steps through the sound of the music!
8/19 ( Thu.) 7 pm – 8 pm (GMT+8)
It’s a Classic Combination of Time Steps with a Break.
This class will give us a taste of Tap Dance vocabulary. Ramona will start the class with a warm up consisting of elements that will be called upon later. There will be plenty of things to take with you for your own practice. We’ll finish the class with a short combination to dance it out together.
8/26 ( Thu.) 7 pm – 8 pm (GMT+8)
This week we’ll take the tempo down and really look at the life and quality of our triple steps. We’ll investigate how the body moves in order to produce a swingin’ syncopation. Dancers will practice comparing and contrasting, being clear about what they intend to do. Once again, to finish the class, we’ll put it together in a little combination to some great music.
9/2 ( Thu.) 7 pm – 8 pm (GMT+8)
Let’s review what we’ve covered, and use it to express and honour the music we love. Ramona will have a routine for you that uses some of the content we’ve covered so far. She’ll connect movements in order to remember the big picture. Dance is a language, and we’ll all get a sense of what we can say.
It’s a class for learning with or without a partner.
