Learn the Big Apple: 15 Feb

The Big Apple is one of THE classic solo routines. Check out the clip below of Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers performing it in 1939. It’s high energy, fast, and AWESOME so be ready for a challenge. We’ll be learning it on Saturday 15 February, in two parts*: in Part 1 of the workshop, we’ll learn a simplified, “bare bones” version of the routine. In Part 2 of the workshop, we’ll learn the “flourishes” that make it real fun! Get this in your back pocket to pull it out at one of the Mother City Hop parties in March!

* This method of learning the Big Apple is inspired by Meghan Gilmore of Cats Corner (Montreal).
