DANCERS IN RESIDENCE

Mit dem “Dancers in Residence”-Programm [DIR#] bietet die IG HOP ein neues Konzept für die Lindy Hop-Szene.
Wir laden spannende Lindy Hop-TänzerInnen und -LehrerInnen für zwei Monate nach Wien ein

# damit sie Wissen, Erfahrungen, Ideen…
# vor allem aber den Spaß am Lindy Hop Tanzen mit der lokalen Szene teilen.
# damit sie wöchentlich in Wien Lindy Hop unterrichten.
# damit sie Raum und Zeit für die eigene tänzerische Arbeit und Entwicklung haben.

Das DIR-Prgramm fördert dabei TänzerInnen mit einem innovativen, individuellen und zeitgemäßen Ansatz zu Lindy Hop.

Our next Dancers In Residence:

FlyerWeb_DIR#4-AnnRyan_front

We are very happy to have these two amazing dancers come to Vienna from October till November 2015 to share their  knowledge and passion of swing dancing. Ryan and Ann are known for their creative and innovative dance vocabulary as well as for their profound and inspiring teaching of Lindy Hop.

Watch these two dancers in action and start getting excited NOW!

Ryan Calloway shines on the dance floor. His enthusiasm, buoyant rhythm and boundless creativity inspires other dancers to fall in love with dancing and find their own creativity as well. With an open and warm style, he welcomes individuals to not only learn the traditions of Vintage Jazz Dance, but to add to it as well. Ryan is also passionate about carrying on the tradition of Hot Jazz music. He is the clarinetist and bandleader of the San Francisco based band, The Hot Baked Goods . Give it a listen!

Ann Mony is an award-winning lindy hop dancer, teacher, and choreographer who blogs about it all on Feets of Jazz . Ann grew her skills as a dance teacher after falling madly in love with swing dancing in 2000. Known for her playful style and the joy that she exudes while dancing, Ann shares her love of the dance in workshops, competitions, performances, and on the social dance floor. Ann was a founding member of the DC Cherry Blossoms, an all-female solo charleston team, and was proud to be a member of various lindy hop teams in Montreal, including the always-inspiring Northern Lights.
If that isn’t enough, you can find more information about Ryan and Ann on their website:

Erin Morris and Nathan Bugh!

Find out more about Erin & Nathan…

Mai 012014
 

Erin Morris

Erin Morris is a nationally-acclaimed jazz artist with an uncanny mix of wild creativity, stunning poise and remarkable stage presence. As founding member and lead-choreographer of Erin Morris & Her Ragdolls, Erin has sparked a local resurgence in the popular chorus girl traditions of the Jazz and Swing eras.

Whether teaching or performing, Erin is one of the most pivotal figures in the Michigan dance scene. Erin honors the tradition of the dances she teaches without losing sight of innovation or personal expression, and her love of solo movement gives her a unique artistry and playful confidence. In addition to dancing, she studies and performs on her jazz tuba with the Easy Street Jazz Band alongside the best Dixieland musicians in Michigan.

As a group, Erin Morris & Her Ragdolls present and promote the relationship between music and dance by performing almost exclusively with live musicians. They are regularly featured performers at NOLA Girl Jam, and they also perform annually on the renowned Michigan Theater stage for the “Ragtime Extravaganza!” show.

Since 1999, Erin has taught for the University of Michigan – Swing Ann Arbor and greatly enjoys investing in her local lindy hop community. She has also taught at national events, like Lindy Diversion in Denver, CO and Hooverville Stomp in Oberlin, OH. With strengths in raw, unique movement, poetic yet simple breakdowns, and an overall conversational teaching-style, it’s easy to see why Erin is always a crowd favorite at workshops.

 

Nathan Bugh

Nathan “Soft Shoe” Bugh has been an international dance instructor and show stopping performer for over a decade, won countless competitions, performed in film, television and theater productions, shines as a member of the famous Killer Dillers and is, above all, a passionate dance teacher.

Nathan has a well documented track history of living and contributing to the Lindy Hop community at large. Nathan’s style and his musical access to jazz movement expresses something vibrant and very unique, revisiting the spirit of the original dancers of the Savoy Ballroom. We think that this aspect of Nathan’s dance understanding has not yet found the spotlight it deserves.

Inviting Nathan Bugh to Vienna for the Dancers In Residence program (DIR#3), represents a kind of exception to our general rule (the DIR-concept is focused on promoting and supporting less well-known, up & coming dancers rather than established and/or famous figures in the dance community as Nathan), but we are sure that you’ll agree he has a lot to offer!

You can find more information and interesting texts about and from Nathan on www.jazzasmovement.com/ or just take an entertaining journey on youtube.

DIR2-Jenni-Chris-ANIMATION-2

Jenny und Christian (DIR#2) sind wahrscheinlich die besten lebenden St. Louis Shag Tänzer. Darüber hinaus gibt es auch im Lindy Hop einige St. Louis spezifische moves und styles. Grund genug um uns zumindest ein Wochenende diesem zu widmen!
Der Zeitplan:

Samstag, 22.2.2014:

11:00-12:30 St. Louis Shag part 1
13:30-15:00 St. Louis Swing
21:30-03:00 Vienna Swing Dj Battle 2013 (Garage X: Petersplatz 1, 1010 Wien)

Sonntag, 23.2.2014:

12:00-13:30 St. Louis Shag part 2
14:30-16:00 St. Louis Shim sham
20:30-02:00 St. Louis Shag Night (Cafe Leopold: Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien)

Der Kurse erfordert keine speziellen Vorkenntnisse, es empfiehlt sich aber eine schnelle Auffassungsgabe und Grundkenntnisse in Swing Tänzen zu haben. Die Kurse finden alle im Studio Eddy Franzen (Jacquingasse 57, 1030 Wien) statt. Das ganze Package(Kurse+Parties) gibt es um EUR 78,-.
Die Teilnehmerzahl ist auf 30 beschränkt, wir möchten daher darum bitten sich nur anzumelden wenn wirklich ein tiefgehendes Interesse am Angebot besteht. Darüber hinaus empfiehlt es ich natürlich schnell mit dem ANMELDEN zu sein!

 

We proudly announce our second edition of the “Dancers in Residence” – program with:

Christian Frommelt & Jenny Shirar

DIR2-Jenni-Chris-KLEIN-ohne

 

“What thrills me about Christian and Jenny is their dedication to local styles in St. Louis. As Lindy becomes more universal and more dominant, it also is becoming homogeneous and destructive to regional styles. By focusing on St. Louis, and taking to original dancers, Christian and Jenny are conserving the detail, the grit, and the meaning of the dance–and they are also great, great teachers!”
Nathan Bugh

With this words we think everything is said. It is our mission with the DIR-program to support Dancers with a special style and unique access to the core of the dance. In this context Christian Frommelt and Jennifer Shirar were often recommended by other professional and international Lindy Hop Instructors. We are glad to have them here for two month to inspire the Viennese and European scene.

They caught our attention for the first time with their showcase at the ILHC 2011, for us one of the most “creative” performances of recent years. but also at the J&Js and other showcases they impress with a very unstressed and casual yet at the same time highly intent and creative dance style.

recent ranks:
1st Place – Slow Dance Couples ESDC 2012
2nd Place – Solo Charleston Camp Jitterbug 2012
1st Place – All-Star Jack & Jill at Lone Star Championships 2011
1st Place – Strictly Blues at Lone Star Championships 2011

Michael “Dargoff” Darigol wants you to do the lindy hop. He has been dancing and performing in the swing dance community since 2003. Dargoff travels far and wide to perform, compete and social dance. With a clear passion and love for the dance he has volunteered his time to promote lindy hop locally, nationally and internationally, and serve as an organizer for multiple events. Since 2007, he has been teaching dance in the Seattle area. His instruction ranges from Lindy Hop and Charleston, to Solo Authentic Jazz and Blues.
Although he has spent a great deal of time and effort training and practicing, it’s regular social dancing that keeps his dancing tuned. While on the social floor, jazz and athleticism exude as Dargoff displays the passion, joy and humor of his unique lindy hop style. http://www.dargoff.com

Brittany Johnson began dancing in Seattle in 2004 and has been hooked ever since, dancing and competing locally, nationally and internationally. she has been teaching in the Seattle area since 2008. she is known for bringing a playful attitude, unique style and athleticism to the social dance floor, the performance stage, and in all of her classes. Brittany offers instruction in Swing Dancing, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Authentic Jazz Movement. even though she has devoted countless hours to practicing and improving, her true passion lies on the social dance floor, where her creativity and joy shine.
