On public request and by public demand: a combined track following the five basic themes of our highly profiled night-time party dance floor, Midnight Ramble: expect early jazz dances (ragtime, New Orleans, Charleston et cetera), slow drag, rhythm 'n’ blues, be-bop and Latin swing. They all come from the family of jazz and are primarily social couple dances in the old-school tradition. This programme offers a serious overview around the Ramble dances, designed for a mixed level of experiences.
The level for this track is rather broad: while little background in the Ramble dances is need or expected, the majority of the students in this programme will probably be lindy hoppers who have at least several years' worth of lindy experience who are comfortable with the basics of the Lindy Hop. This programme is designed to push you into new territory, and will expand into the outskirts of the roots and branches of several dances related to the Ramble Track.
