    Mama's Stew

    Free for all pass holders

    Guest instructor Thomas and Aurore from Hong Kong would like to share with us a classic solo routine Mama's Stew Friday before the dance. This is a solo choreography that was originally used by Whitey's Lindy Hoppers to warm up before practicing their routines. Named so as Mama Lu and The Parkets famously performed it together. This is a great choreo to learn both for use in practice and on the social dance floor. Especially when the DJ decides to put on a fast one at a dance, for example Friday night of CSF ;)

     

    周五晚舞会前,香港的嘉宾教师Thomas和Aurore想与大家分享一段经典单人编舞Mama's Stew。它原本是Whitey's Lindy Hoppers用来热身的单人编舞,后来由于Mama Lu and The Parkets的表演十分经典而被命名为Mama's Stew,这个编舞很适合用来练习或者在舞池上跳,特别是当DJ放快歌的时候, 比如CSF周五晚 ;)

    It can simply be dancing Balboa slowly, but what's more is how to make the slow movement flow smoothly in the slower tempo.

    (Shag basics will be covered in class, but consider attending the trail class on Saturday first to be more comfortable with the steps so we have more time to get into the more fun area)

     

    Collegiate Shag

    作为一个比较活跃的舞蹈,比较适于跟快一些的Swing音乐来跳。看上去很活泼、有弹跳性而同时又比较镇定,可以专注于脚法及不同节奏的混合。
