Glenn Crytzer brings some of your favorite tunes from your favorite jazz bands for your dancing pleasure both Friday and Saturday evenings!
The Amazing History of Swing!
Know Your Roots: Understanding the Origins and Evolutions of this “Swing Thing”
Have you ever wondered where Shag got is name?, Why Lindy Hop has triples even though Shorty George didn’t do them?, Or why it’s called a coaster step? Together we’ll trace the roots from ragtime to Jazz, 20’s Collegiate, Swing, Rock’n Roll/Bop, into West Coast before it was even called West Coast, to Disco and Hustle and beyond. Using rare video, print, and audio recordings paired with live demos you’ll gain a whole new level of understanding of swing’s rich and diverse history.
Join us Saturday evening for a two hour ‘History of Swing Dancing’ with Forrest Outman.
