Trickeration Workshop

Learn the challenging solo routine!

Saturday March 9th

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
  • “Air-time”; precise combos

This workshop is mixed-level solo dancing, from intermediate up to very 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.

If you don’t have much experience with jazz dance, get ready for a real challenge.

After the workshop, you’ve earned yourself a break, maybe a nice lunch nearby. Then, come back to the studio, and end the afternoon with a little time to practice and hang out together, where you can meet other dancers from our community. We’ll play music, dance, and enjoy a few hours together before going home with a big smile.

Here’s where the workshop will take place:

SwingStation Kurfürsten-Anlage 58

The entrance is on the eastern side of the building, reachable from the Kurfürsten-Anlage itself or from the Kirchstraße. Our studio is on the ground floor, at the end of the hall.

Public Transportation: many busses, streetcars, trains; stops “Hauptbahnhof” or “Stadtwerke”.

Parking: please do not park in the yard, the parking spaces don’t belong to us and you might get a ticket. It’s hard to find parking spots in our area, so you should plan in some extra time. You can try to find street parking in the Kirchstraße or Vangerowstraße, or you might need to go to a nearby Parkhaus (e.g. P1 in the Poststraße) and walk from there.
