Miller Performing Arts: Swing Dance Crash Course

"Swing swing swing, everybody start to swing. When the music goes around, everybody goes to town. Just relax and take is slow." Have you ever heard this timeless tune by Benny Goodman? Turn up the music and let’s dance! Swing Dance or Lindy Hop is a style of dance that originated in the Harlem ballrooms of NY during 1930's. Slow and sassy or fast and raw, it is all about music, rhythm, groove and having a fun time!   Take part in this workshop with Hong Kong Swings’ award-winning teachers Thomas Latter and Aurore Alauze and learn the basics of swing dance, including 8 count patterns, routine work and improvisation. As swing is a social dance, be prepared to switch partners throughout the night!

X’tra Special Arts Project – Teacher Workshop

Using art as a bridge to connect participants spiritually through a shared emotional experience – this is the aim of the X'tra Special Arts Project. Since 2011, YAF's popular X'tra Special Arts Project has offered workshops to stimulate creativity among students with special needs, and their teachers. The project has benefited more than 1,000 participants, helping students to express their feelings and enhance their self-esteem through art. The X'tra Special Arts Teacher Workshop provides a platform where teachers of special needs students share their experiences and learn the skills of shadow puppet and weaving to enhance teaching approaches in special needs classrooms. Special needs schools or related organisations interested in these workshops should email for details.
