While all are welcome in every Swing It Seattle class, Queer Swing classes are specifically focused on creating a Safe & Queer Positive Space. Here you’ll learn in the “ELEF” style meaning “Everyone Leads, Everyone Follows.” Class Taught by Adam Brozowski & Bradley Barrios Description: Develop basic dance skills you need to become an awesome social partner dancer. Even better, you will learn in an ELEF class giving you the superpower to lead and follow from day one! **\*What is ELEF, and why learn this way?** *Partner dance is steeped in gender roles and power dynamics; ELEF stands for "Everybody Leads, Everybody Follows." This means you will learn to both Lead and Follow Lindy Hop staring from day one of your new dance life! Aside from giving you a partner dance superpower, and being a ton of fun, we believe this way of learning to dance helps break down these archaic power dynamics making way for a new collaborative modern dance partnership where both partners ultimately understand how to listen AND respond through the language of the music. Intrigued?! Join us!!*
