You love watching Fred and Ginger movies. You always wanted to learn to dance, but didn’t know what type of classes to start with. You love exercising in fun and interesting ways. You like meeting new people and dabbling in new hobbies. You love performing and are looking for a new outlet. You always dreamed of being a Rockette (and maybe still do). You love swing music. You are f…emale or male. You own a pair of low heels. As long as you come with a sense of humor and interest in learning, we welcome you to class!
We ask that all students bring a pair of sturdy, short black heels to wear for class and performance. If you have injuries barring you from wearing heels, please contact us. We recommend Bloch Broadway character shoe or something similar.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
In the class, we will teach you an original choreography, which is directly influenced and inspired by female dance “choruses” of the 1920s-1940s. By the end of class, you will learn an entire routine (approximately three minutes) with an opportunity to refine the piece so that students interested in performing will be ready to show off high-kicks to an audience of vintage-dance enthusiasts.
We are excited to offer you the following for your class enrollment fee:
• Five 1.5-hour class session – a total of 7.5 hours of professional instruction from two internationally-recognized teachers
• Access to choreography re-cap videos, so that you can remember the details when you practice on your own
• An opportunity to perform at a local swing dance/dance event, in front of supportive audience of vintage jazz dance enthusiasts (optional)
• Pre-Registration: $125 (Student with active ID: $100)
• At the Door Registration: $150 (Student with active ID: $125)
Part of the fun of being a chorus girl is wearing fun costumes! Students interested in performing are responsible for procuring at their own cost:
• a black leotard (specific details to be provided)
• “danceable” short black heels
• nylons or dance tights
As your Dancing Dolls teachers, we (Robin Nunnally and Casey Schneider) bring you a combined 33 years of experience with jazz era dances and over two decades of teaching and performing in Seattle, the Pacific Northwest, and throughout the U.S. and Canada. We are co-founders and managers of the beloved chorus girl dance company, Sister Kate, which performed regularly in Seattle for seven years. With our knowledge and love for dances of the golden era of the 20th century and our equal love for teaching and performance, we will share this experience and passion with you! We look forward to meeting you!
