Trickeration
Norma Miller's Solo Routine

Day & Time: Wednesday, 19:00 – 20:00

Dates: 10.08.2022 – 24.08.2022

The Trickeration is an amazing jazz routine.  It has such strong and inspiring rhythms, such a great flow and groove, when you dance it you feel like you’re really swinging.  It also has some real challenging moments, it can be hard to get “just right”, so it’s a great routine to use for training.

The Trickeration is also rooted in the history of the dance; an old Harlem chorus line routine, shared with modern lindy hoppers by the late great Norma Miller and passed on by those who learned from her, carrying it forward lets us be a part of the lineage of swing dance and its culture.

Come join the other worldwide fans of the Trickeration - make your dancing more cool, more rhythmical, more swinging, more tricky!

Of course you’ll learn the routine itself, we’ll guide you step-by-step through all the moves and sequences you need to be able to dance the Trickeration with confidence.  But you’ll get much more than just a routine out of this course! You’ll also train important concepts that will improve your dancing overall:

  • Basic rhythm, groove and posture
  • Swinging rhythm; Ball-changes, Half-breaks
  • Changing the groove to fit your movement
  • precise combos

This course is mixed-level solo dancing, from beginner-intermediate all the way up - anyone can benefit from this course, including the most experienced dancers.  We will build up each movement “from scratch” with no assumptions about which moves you know, but the learning pace will be fairly quick and the techniques and sequences are not easy.
