4:00 – 5:00pm
“Creating conversation”
This class will be focusing on what our body mechanics and connection are really telling our partner during the dance. And how to convey the right message at the right time to produce the best results for bringing out the conversation in our dancing.

5:15 – 6:15pm
“Smart Styling”
Not your typical styling class as we will work on new ways to style that will unlock new dimensions to your movement. For leads and follows to push and explore what their bodies can do during a social dance.

6:30 – 7:30pm
“Tricky Transitions”
Taking basics and stacking them to create complex phrased patterns. Build more confidence with leading and following these types of patterns without getting “lost”. Remember great things don’t happen by staying in comfort zones.

West Coast Swing Workshops
with Jerome and Bonnie Subey at
Ballroom Dancesport Milford
SATURDAY October 24TH

Jerome and Bonnie Registration Form

Please click the links below to view videos of Jerome and Bonnie

Open to all … No partner required!

Bonnie and Jerome met on the dance floor 3 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Jerome is originally from Montpelier, France, and Bonnie is from Oklahoma City, OK. They spent some time in Philadelphia, PA, but now travel full-time, teaching, judging, and performing West Coast Swing. Between the two of them, they have over 25 years of partner dance experience. Bonnie and Jerome are both GPDIA certified judges and are constantly looking to further their dance education.

4:00 – 5:00pm Starting from the Beginning: If you’ve never done west coast swing before you can start here! If you’ve done west coast swing for years you may want to take this class to refresh skills or learn skills you may be missing. We’ll discuss basic rhythm, connection, movements, and technique.

5:15 – 6:15pm Clever Connection: Taking the basic connection you’ve learned to another level. This is the core of what makes west coast swing so fun and popular. Great connection makes for great lead and follow improvisation. We’ll show you the body mechanics and technique of connection that often gets glossed over.

6:30 – 7:30pm Floorcraft: Take control of the floor! Whether you’re dancing in a crowded room or trying to shine in competition, you need to know how to use the space you have. We’ll break down how to make that happen and consequentially help you to be a more responsible social dancer (whether you’re a leader or follower).

7:30 – 8:00pm Dinner Break

8:00 – 9:00pm Fancy Footwork: You see us do it, you want to learn it! This is our most requested class. We will show you some examples of “fancy footwork” that we do, but our goal in this class is to give you the tools to create your own footwork. We’ll break down what people are actually talking about when they say footwork and give you some drills you can practice at home by yourself to make footwork come more easily.

Saturday Night Dance 9:00pm – 12:00am $10.00 with any workshop ($15 dance
only)

**8pm workshop and Dance Party $20

Jerome and Bonnie are also available for private lessons. To schedule a lesson please contact Michael at 203-454-9200.
