Location: The Longwood Ballroom
The Shim Sham is a jazz era dance routine originally done by Vaudeville performers in the early 1900’s. While there are many variations of the Shim Sham around today, the version popular amongst swing dancers and Lindy Hoppers is a solo group dance (dare we say “line”?) that incorporates various jazz steps. In this three week class, Anna and Shelley will teach you the whole dance from time steps, to cross-overs and Tacky Annies. The focus will be on the Frankie Manning version as it’s the most common seen on the dance floor. You’ll get a chance to practice it as a group step-by-step until you have it down pat. You’ll even learn a few areas where you can improv or do variations.
This is a solo/group jazz dance, so no partner is needed and beginners are welcome. No previous dance experience is needed.
Price & Registration: Advance registration is now closed. You may still register for the class by showing up and paying the Day-of rate ($40) by either cash or check (no credit or debit cards can be accepted).Â For questions, please call 407-766-9849 or email lessons@FlyinFootwork.com.
Quotes and Comments
“The group lessons are an awesome way to get to practice new moves with a lot of other dancers while still under Rob and Dawn's watchful eyes. Plus, then you know a lot of other people at your same ability level when you go to the Saturday night dances and can practice your moves with them there too! For me, the combination of private lessons and group lessons has been perfect. They are the best days of my week!”
