SWING DANCE LESSONS

Enjoy American Swing of the Golden Era with Jasmine Worrell. Swing is a fun social partner dance set to swing jazz, blues, and rock and roll music. Having evolved from Lindy Hop in the 1940s, it’s based on six-count figures that are simplified forms of Lindy Hop patterns. In practice on the social dance floor, the six-count steps of the East Coast Swing can be mixed with the eight-count steps of Lindy Hop and Charleston, and is therefore a perfect place to start or continue growing your swing.

GROUP LESSONS

Whether you are new to swing dancing or have months or even years of experience, join Jasmine’s 4 week swing dance series, launching October, 2021. Due to the holiday season, the final group lessons of 2021 will skip the week of Thanksgiving, as well as the weeks of December 20 and 27, 2021. In the new year, class will resume the week of January 3, 2022. No experience or partner is necessary. Classes are progressive, therefore every week within that series, we build upon the moves taught in the previous class. Sign yourself up and maybe a friend if you wish, although you never need to bring a partner or friend in order to join! I will supply a dance partner for you should you sign up without one. We promise to offer a great time! Email if you have questions about your level. All participants must be vaccinated to join. Email, text or call to register if you wish to pay offline (to avoid PayPal/Eventbrite fees).

“In my 20 years of dancing, Jasmine is the best instructor I have ever danced with! She is immensely talented and able to teach multiple skill levels at the same time! She can be flexible with her schedule when needed and she is willing to teach in home, or an alternate location! She listens to what her students want and immediately addresses those wants. She is very skilled at addressing the different challenges that surface for people when they are learning to dance. I am so grateful to have her as an instructor.” — Carissa

“Jasmine is a wonderful, beautiful dancer who happens to also be a great instructor. She knows many dances and understands how to make the instructions clear, help beginners, improve advanced dancers. She’ll make you feel relaxed and all the learning will be fun, fun, fun. There is nothing she doesn’t know about dance.” — Camille

“Jasmine is that rare combination of spectacular artistic talent AND the ability to teach her art to us mere mortals. I’ve taken beginning swing, intermediate swing, and lindy hop lessons from her, and I’ve learned a lot while having fun! She shows you how to do the steps, makes sure you really get it before moving on, and laughs along with the learners. I highly recommend any class with her!” — Peter
