    PRE-DANCE WORKSHOPS

    Slow Dancing SWING WORKSHOP (All Levels)


    When the tempo gets slow, it can be difficult to use your swing steps and moves.  This class will teach alternative steps, as well as strategies for pacing the standards, and it will give you a chance to practice leading and following.  Students should already be familiar with triple-steps and basic, six-count swing moves.
    Instructor: Nathan Bugh & Gaby Cook

    Fast Dancing SPECIALTY WORKSHOP (Intermediate Level)
    When the tempo gets hot, learn how to play it cool — Nathan and Gaby share their tricks for cutting a rug.  Improve your efficiency, and make faster tempos easy, by understanding footwork choices, move choices, and the flow of momentum.  Relax and enjoy fast songs.  Students should already be comfortable with 6-count and 8-count swing moves, and charleston basics.
    Instructor: Nathan Bugh & Gaby Cook

More on Ron -

Imagine how the jump-swing bands of the '30s and '40s would sound filtered through the sensibilities of a generation raised on rock and roll. Take a healthy dose of Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans funk, and downhome harmonica stomps; mix with the classics from the era of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole, and Fats Waller; stir in an ever-growing portion of strong original material, and you come up with Ron Sunshine and his Orchestra. Audience members of all ages are getting hip to this timely tip.....putting a new twist on the old standards, serving up some fresh ones, and having, in general, too much fun. So come on down and have a whirl on the dance floor, sing along with the cats, or just relax and enjoy. Read more on Ron Sunshine



DANCE CONTEST Year's End 2014

Saturday, December 13, 2014

  • Swing Remix Dance Spectacular
  • Jan Marie & The Mean Reds Plus Special Guest Dan Levinson
  • DJ VaVa Voon & DANCE CONTEST with over $1,000 in CASH and PRIZES
The JCC in Manhattan 334 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY

Jan Marie
All the way from BOSTON, MA, Jan Marie & The Mean Reds join us for the First Time on Saturday December 13th, and joining them will be Virtuoso Clarinetist/Saxophonist Dan Levinson

On The Mean Reds -

The Mean Reds sound is unique, and combines Jan Marie’s Billie Holiday-esque lag-vocal technique with a growling trumpet and oscillates between tinkling ivories and pounding keys on a Hammond B3 organ. Mixing genres with plentiful ease is their specialty, and their grooves run so deep they can get even the most left-footed of characters tapping their toes on the dancefloor. But don’t take our word for it–see us play out live or play our videos – we’re sure you’ll understand what all the fuss is about... website: ojanmarie.com/meanreds

On Dan Levinson -

The Mississippi Rag calls Dan Levinson the in-demand reedman. A specialist in traditional jazz and swing, Dan is indeed one of the most prolific musicians on the scene today, equally at home as both a leader and sideman….
Though based in New York City, Dans busy schedule often takes him across the country and around the world. He has performed in Brazil with the Bunk Project, a band organized by Woody Allen and banjoist Eddy Davis, in Italy with the Manhattan Rhythm Kings, in Scotland with David Ostwalds Louis Armstrong Centennial Band….
