Norma Miller's Solo Routine
Day & Time: Monday, 20:15 – 21:15
Dates: 14.08.2023 – 21.08.2023
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:
