HUSTLE SERIES with TONY and LINDA

    Linda Leverock and I, Tony Farrand, will be teaching two 4-week series of East Coast Swing and Hustle, for 4 consecutive Wednesdays, starting on Wednesday, Sept 4th.  The classes will be at the Karate Academy (formerly Rexers) at 105 Washington Avenue in Endicott. The first class, East Coast Swing, will start at 7:00.  This will aim to help people who have taken the Tuesday night beginner class and want to add more patterns and technique from there. While the class is aimed at this group, you do  not have to have taken the Tuesday night classes, but you should be comfortable with the basic 6-count rhythm and inside and outside turns. We will try to leave some time in the class for dancing to the music.

    The Hustle series is a Beginner series and the classes will start at 8:00. We will start with basic rhythm, and send out (Out the door), and return (In the door), and progress from there as far as the class can go in the four weeks. We will try to help you smooth out the dance so it will be more comfortable , and more fun to dance.  Like the early class, we will try to leave time for dancing, during, or at the end of class.

    All the details, including a registration form are on the attached flyer.  Note that there is a discount for early registration, on or before Tuesday, August 27th. and a discount also if you are taking both series.  There is  also a drop in rate of $10 for a single class ($15 for both classes on the same night).  Please e-mail or call me at 785-5228 if you have any questions.

STSDS WORKSHOPS and DANCE

Southern Tier Swing Dance Society Presents:

Paul & Marta Canfield
West Coast Swing Workshops and Dance

Saturday March 30, 2019

American Legion Post 82, 1305 Riverview Dr., Endicott NY 13760

BIO: Paul and Marta Canfield have each been dancing for over 20 years with roots in gymnastics, East Coast Swing and Salsa. Paul and Marta drew each other in a WCS competition in Syracuse,  but didn’t meet again until a few years later at a National WCS competition in Buffalo where they became dance partners. They were married in 2008 and left the dance world to raise their 2 sons. In 2016 they started teaching beginner WCS with only 8 people in their first class. Now, they both compete in the Advanced level at WSDC approved events as well as teach workshops at these events.  They are the directors for Upstate NY JT Swing Team, with local students performing the routines locally, regionally and nationally. Their mission is to teach WCS and make it accessible for new dancers as well as foster a group of students who want to perform and compete on the National WCS circuit.  They are committed to helping their local WCS community grow and creating an inclusive and safe environment for dancers.  canfielddancearts@gmail.com                   facebook.com/canfielddancearts/

Note: The Binghamton dance community loves welcoming new dancers and offers many opportunities to get started with your WCS. However, these workshops are designed for dancers who have some experience with the dance. In order to allow more seasoned dancers to get the most out of these workshops, please attend only if you’ve already taken beginner WCS swing lessons and are comfortable with 6 and 8-count patterns. We appreciate your consideration!
