If you love the dancing in old movies, can't keep from tapping your toes to vintage jazz music, or have longed to dance in a group of like-minded chorus girl souls, then this series is for you!
Vintage Rhythm and the Rhythm Belles are hosting a 5-week class series starting April 23, 2023 where students will learn an original chorus girl choreography. No prior experience is necessary!
For this round of the Chorus Girl Academy, students will learn a routine in the style of the 1930's large stage numbers, full of classic jazz moves and stylings. Students will also have the opportunity to perform this routine at the end of the series at the weekly Lindy at the Leo swing dance on June 6th. Performing isn't required but it sure is fun and we highly encourage it! CLASS SCHEDULE (AND LOCATION):
