Come learn to Lindy with the best of them Monday night
The latest movie adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” ramped up a resurgence of interest in the fashion and lifestyle of the Roaring Twenties. Two years later, flapper girl costumes and Gatsby-themed proms continue to flaunt their fringe.
If you want to take your appreciation for the Jazz Age deeper than “Downton Abbey” reruns and last year’s Halloween costume, why not learn the Lindy Hop?
Etienne van Wyk and Lindsey Miller offer beginner and intermediate swing dance lessons every Monday evening at ClearSpring Yoga studio. For $7 ($5 with a student ID), you will get 45 minutes of instruction and an hour and a half of unguided social dance time.
Ladies, think twice before you strap on those Mary Janes. The studio has laminate flooring, so it is requested that you break out your old Converses instead. Don’t worry—the overpriced flapper dress hanging in the back of your closet will look great with the cherry red Keds you found on sale at Target last week.
Just don’t forget the knotted pearls.
Beginners should arrive at 7:45 p.m., but if you’ve attended one too many upscale wedding to call yourself a swing novice, intermediate lessons commence at 7 p.m. on the dot.
