LINDY BY THE SEA'S SWING REPERTOIRE
STARTING OCTOBER 22, 2019!
With the "JEEP JOCKEY JUMP" ROUTINE
We are so excited, and we hope you will be, too!
WHAT IS IT?
Announcing, for the first time in Los Angeles, a troupe, a company of dancers of all Lindy Hop levels who wish to learn the Lindy Hop swing dance repertoire, and perform!
WHAT WILL IT INCLUDE?
Each 4-week series*, you'll learn one of the classic Lindy Hop routines, known throughout the world.
And each week, we'll practice the one's we've already done.
- Jeep Jockey Jump
- The Big Apple
- The Lindy Chorus
- The California Routine
- The Shim Sham
- The Tranky Doo
- The Jitterbug Stroll
- Big John Special
*Sometimes the routines will take two series to learn, as they are more involved.
WHAT WILL BE THE FIRST ROUTINE?
"Jeep Jockey Jump"!
This is a great routine to start our troupe. It's an upbeat dance filled Swingouts, Charleston, and Switches. You'll learn the routine in two weeks, and then "fancy-up" the Swingouts and Charleston with some awesome variations (Harlem Swingouts & Savoy Kicks).
By the way, This routine was created back in 1998 by Rusty Frank & Sylvia Skylar, when they had a professional job and needed a routine within a few days! It's been performed around the world, ever since.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS TROUPE & YOUR CAMP HOLLYWOOD TEAM?
In the Troupe you'll be learning entire historic routines quickly and then practicing them every week as we build the repertoire. No standing around as Rusty & Ron experiment. You'll be dancing your feet off!
Unlike our Camp Hollywood team routines, where we create a brand new performance routine over a five-month period with loads of formation changes, that is done just a few times and then lost to the world...except on video. Both Team and Troupe are super fun, just very different pacing. (For those who have been on one of our Camp Hollywood teams, imagine the last four weeks of practices!)
WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE TROUPE MEET?
Tuesday nights from 8:00pm-9:00pm at our regular Lindy By The Sea location, 406 E. Grand Avenue.
WHERE WILL THE TROUPE PERFORM?
Good question! Of course, we'll perform regularly at Rusty's, and we'll look for other opportunities at senior homes, veteran facilities, community events, etc.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone can join who knows their Lindy Hop Basics (Swingouts, Sugar Pushes, Lindy Charleston, etc.).
DO I NEED A PARTNER?
Nope. (Isn't that nice?!)
WHO ARE THE COACHES?
Rusty Frank & Ron Campbell
HOW MUCH IS IT?
It will be priced like our regular classes and can be bundled (yes, you would get a discount if you were doing more than one class a night).
IF I JOIN THE CLASS, DO I HAVE TO BE PART OF THE TROUPE?
DO I HAVE TO PERFORM?
No, you don't have to officially be part of the troupe if you just want to learn the routines, and you don't have to perform. It can just be something you do for yourself and take like any of our 4-week series.
