Specializing in vintage dances such as the Charleston, the Lindy Hop, and East Coast Swing, Eugene Swing’s gurus of getting down share their choreographed insight with aspiring high steppers. During each group swing workshop, instructors group students according to skill level and let the class determine which techniques they would like to improve in order to transform timid tenderfeet into hardy hoofers. Swing scholars break down complicated dance patterns into simple, fundamental movements that set pupils on a path to a more limber, acrobatic, and zoot-suited existence. Swing workshops are offered on the second Sunday of each month, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and fearless rug cutters can also show off their abilities at monthly events or talent night at the local DMV.
During private lessons, students learn melodious movements unhindered by the slow progress of un-surefooted classmates. Instructors tailor each one-on-one lesson to the specific needs of each student, rapidly progressing from dancing basics to more complicated moves such as spinning a partner or dipping them while solving a Rubik's Cube.
