About the class:

Back for 3 more weeks by popular demand! 🎉

Work on your solo dancing with mini choreo combos. Each week will feature a different song and some moving and grooving inspired by it.  Hint: improving your solo movement pays real dividends in your partnered dancing!

This class is aimed at students with a "conversational" solo jazz vocabulary, but anyone who'd like to challenge themselves is welcome to join in!

About your instructor:

Cate Rauschenberger started ballroom dancing in Georgia in 2006, but it wasn't until 2014 that the music, community, and capacity for expression of lindy hop stole her heart. 

She is passionate about the multi-directional aspect of communication in partner dancing-- the conversation between musicians and dancers through the music, between a couple and anyone observing them, and between the lead and follow themselves. 

She loves and strives for balanced connections, playful improvisation, and musically-inspired movement in her dancing. As a teacher, she enjoys breaking things down, building them back up, and seeing those joyful, dance "aha!" moments.
