Mikey & Sara – Workshop Weekend

From the US, the internationally renowned dancer Mikey Pedroza is coming to town, bringing his lovely partner Sara Götz from high up the Swiss Alps. Come and join us on the 2nd and 3rd of December for a weekend full of Lindy Hop and Jazz, to give you some new inspiration and fresh ideas!

When: 2 & 3 December 2017

Where: Multiple locations in Utrecht

Registration opens: 23 August 2017, 19:00 on this page

Level descriptions

BLUE
At least 3 months of experience up to a year. The level indicates that you have understood the fundamentals and are able to execute them. You can be in this level if you will be in the Utrecht level 1B or 1C at time of the workshop.

YELLOW
This is where the majority of hobby- and general social dancers belong. You are familiar with both rhythms and patterns as well as the technique that comes with it. In this level, we will both try to improve on the execution of fairly basic material, but also provide slightly more challenging material. You can be in this level if you will be in the Utrecht level 2 at time of the workshop. So, you have roughly been dancing for 1-2 years.

RED
This level is for experienced dancers. We believe that students showing up at this level are confident, technically knowledgeable and fairly fluent in the rhythmical language around Lindy Hop. The material in circulation on this level will be challenging from all aspects: rhythmically, technically and tempo wise. Comparable to Utrecht level 3 and above.

GREEN
This is an invitational level. Students are selected on the principles used in Lindyshock: a peer reviewed process by fellow dancers. If you are selected, you will receive an e-mail. If you are completely new to the scene/coming from abroad and think you belong in this level, please pm the organisers. There will be no open tickets sold.

SOLO JAZZ
There will be two jazz classes at two different levels. On Saturday for students with little experience in jazz, on Sunday for students that know all basic jazz moves and are familiar with the basic jazz routines like Shim Sham and Tranky Doo.
