Last night was a doozy. We had some of the best Swing Outs I’ve ever seen at Lindy 1 level followed by a MASSIVE Shim Sham class. It was all about the Jazz last night and Perth came out in force!With Ruth ill it was down to me and Fuchsia to take the Lindy 1s through their paces. We started with a refresher of Mini Dip (nice segue into the coming Shim Sham class) and then into some Swing Out work, specifically the different exits for the girls. I’ll say this right now…wow. What an amazing improvement in one class. I was so impressed with the level of Swing Outs and in such a short amount of time. Well done, Gang!
Next up was a giant Shim Sham class. It was wonderful to see so many people eager to learn the classic routine. Passed on for something like 80 years this dance is still going strong around the world. Both Basic and Traditional (hard) versions were on offer but it looked like everyone was in for keepin’ it “real” or traditional as the case may be. Great stuff!
