Guest Teachers – Double UK Lindy Hop Champions: Graeme and Ann
Graeme & Ann live in Bath and learnt to Lindy Hop in the 1990’s at the start of the Swing revival. Among their teachers were the Jiving Lindy Hoppers and the late, great Frankie Manning. They have achieved national success and are twice U.K. Lindy Hop Champions. They have done a lot of T.V., video and film work including; BBC’s ‘Turn Back Time -The High Street’ – London Weekend’s ‘Barrymore Show’ – the title sequence for ‘Josie’ on Channel 5 – featured Lindy dancers in BBC’s ‘String of Pearls’~ a history of swing music – even a comedy dance routine with the late Rod Hull and Emu.
They were the choreographers for an animated jitterbug sequence in Aardman Animation’s major film release, “CHICKEN RUN”
Graeme and Ann work full time teaching and performing all over the country with their dance group ‘Hoppin’ Mad’ and currently run classes in Bristol and Bath. They have taught and performed in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Sydney, Denmark, Ireland and New Zealand. They have also taken part in the Miami Art Deco Festival and Derry Jazz Festivals.
This Aerials Workshop will suit anyone who has thought about doing a few simple Aerials (lifts) but didn’t know where to start! These Aerials will be based on Lindy Hop lead-ins and you will be shown how to incorporate a few simple Aerials into your social swing dancing
