Swingin' Denver says
Swingin' Denver is holding auditions to add new members to its swing performance team, The Ladies & Gentlemen! Auditions will be held Saturday, August 27 from 12:15-2:15pm (you must arrive early and attend the full two hours) at the Hannah Kahn Studio. Please read the below carefully if you are interested!

About TL&G: This team meets weekly on Monday nights to train, learn choreography and improve dance technique. On average, we also meet 1-2 times/month on weekends to train and learn aerials. We perform regularly at festivals, private parties and corporate events, teach in small and large group settings, and promote swing dancing in and around Denver.

Auditioning dancers will be expected to demonstrate their knowledge of basic aerials like the Frog Jump, Tossout and Lindy Flip. Dancers will also learn and perform a short partnered choreography that day. Dancers must also prepare a short (:30-:45) *original* choreography by themselves (solo) or with a partner (partnered dancing, partners must contribute equally to choreo) to one of the following three songs:

1. I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate by Muggsy Spanier
2. Swingmatism by Jay McShann
3. Get Rhythm In Your Feet by Mora's Modern Rhythmists

We are looking for highly motivated, intermediate-advanced dancers of strong character that want to dedicate time and effort to invest in their dancing and, as a result, the growing swing dancing community. We are looking for people that want to perform, teach, and promote the dance to the general public.

We will let everyone know audition results the following week. TL&G meets Monday evenings at Hannah Kahn from 7:30-9:30pm. Currrent coaches are Kenny and Jessica Nelson. There are dues ($10/week, paid monthly) which go toward the rehearsal space, teachers, private group sessions with renowned instructors, advertising, costumes, and more.
