Item Description

Put on those dancing shoes, get those jazz hands ready, and enjoy a one-hour private swing dance lesson with national lindy hop competitor and instructor (and Discovery Museum Board member) Jarod Bloom.

Hip AND cool, swing dancing is a favorite among social dancers of all ages. It's not difficult to spot swing dancers...look for the couple having the most fun. Swing dance is characterized by lots of swinging, flipping and throwing of dancers. Because it is a non-progressive dance style (because it is mostly performed in one spot), it is a popular dance for a crowded dance floor. Swing is a quick, fast-paced dance. Couples hold hands as opposed to placing hands on the shoulders or around the waist, as ballroom dancers do.

Swing dancing takes a little practice, but once you learn the steps, you may never want to stop!

Item Special Note

Certificate expires 3 months from the close of the auction (August 15, 2020), unless otherwise mutually agreed upon by the winning bidder and Jarod due to extenuating circumstances. Location of lesson to be agreed upon between instructor and winner, must be reasonably convenient to Acton, MA.
