Last Saturday Claire performed a 20s Flapper Charleston show at the Flor de Noche (Tango event) one year anniversary. It was a great party and the show brought high energy to the event.
The great thing about 20s Flapper Charleston is that makes you feel funny and brings you the very good mood.
Here we would like to share the show with you!
It was a great pleasure to be at the European Swing Dance Championship (ESDC) 2015 in London. Why? Not just only to have the chance to see so many wonderful dancers being together, but also the inspiration you can get by watching the competitions, by dancing at the party, by taking workshop on this weekend.
So many people put their love and talent together. You can image how much work there is behind each performance and improvisation.
If you are interested in watching more competition videos of ESDC, you can check on Youtube. One of the best dancer couples, Patrick & Natasha, put all the videos on Youtube.
Huge thanks to Sharon Davis, who makes this event happening every year and spread the most amazing energy and inspiration to the whole Swing Community.
Here is our routine at Classic Showcase. This is our first routine ever and of course we will keep working on dance better. See you next year at ESDC! Cheers :D
PS: For our friends living in Germany, you will need to check our video via Vimeo and here is the link : https://vimeo.com/147596745
We had two incredible days teaching in Luxembourg. Not only because the community here loves Swing dancing as much as we do, but also the appreciation to the detail and technique. Both Eran and I were inspired by the energy and will of the group and felt so happy after the class.
Especially Martina, the one makes the whole project having Eran and me in Luxembourg happen, is a wonderful dancer with beautiful mind. We are so glad to be around her, a very lovely lady always with smile and makes us feel home.
We did little recap of our classes.
Thanks Girls! You did a great job. Even it was not easy and we really went a lot into the detail, but this is a fantastic start to work on your posture, solo movement and connection.
As usual here is a sum up for you and hope you keep practicing!
