Teachers Nick Baeten and Nikoleta Kallipoliti

Description

During this Mini Workshop, we will explore dancing to different styles of blues music, with a focus on solo dancing within the connection to a partner.

Nikoleta and Nick moved around COVID times to Stockholm. Since then they have been teaching together at Chicago Swing dance Studio, Herrang Dance Camp and oh right, last year’s edition of CPH:LX!!!

They love conceptual classes on simplicity of movement. And so they approach each and every class with the mindset… what do we actually do and why? 

They are passionate about Lindy Hop and Blues dancing… and showing off 😉

Level Open level
Description The evolution of Lindy Hops became partner dances such as Hand Dancing and Steppin in the 60s. What also emerged in the 60s were a lot of different solo dances either on lines or in front of each other. The big difference was, you did not hold hands any more.
Per Rock will guide you through different dances from the late 50s to the mid 60s such as: The Stroll, Twist, Jerk, Wahtusi, Hully Gully, Mashed Potato, Soul Train and others. It is going to be a blast, and you can use all these dances to all kinds of music.
