Steven Mitchell's Original Series

 

The Steven Mitchell 5 part Lindy Hop Series

Lindy Hop 1: The Basics

• Price: $60
• All 5 Videos: $200

Steven's introduction to Lindy Hop teaches the basic elements that make up the dance. He conveys through his infectious love of this dance form, a very accessible sense of its history and its connection to Swing music. His unique style and approach forms a bridge between the dance as it was created in the 1930s and its identity now. Take this workshop with him (and the others in the series) and you will see why Lindy Hop is now drawing thousands of people back to the dance floor in a way that hasn't happened since the 1940s. Filmed in 1999 in Buenos Aires. Produced by LSD Films (approx. 90 mins.)

Lindy Hop 3: Jazz Movement for Swing Dancers

• Price: $60
• All 5 Videos: $200

This tape is a tour de force on the jazz vernacular of the 20s and 30s which influenced so many partnered dances of the Swing Era, and is still influencing jazz dancers today. Have you tried to Shake 'n' Bake, Fish Tail, or Camel Walk? Ever heard of the Shorty George? the Suzi Q? Here you practically meet them in person. Nobody conveys this material as Steven does, and people travel from all over the world to take this particular class with him at Swing dance events. He has the magical ability to make this vocabulary fun and understandable to all levels and styles of dancers. Filmed in 1999 in Buenos Aires. Produced by LSD Films (approx. 60 mins.)

Lindy Hop 4: Putting it all Together Part I

• Price: $60
• All 5 Videos: $200

Here we get to the in-between stuff! Putting the icing on the cake, or as Steven would say, showing you the "flava" of the dance. You are introduced to more vocabulary and the elements you can add to create your own style, including slides, spins, and footwork for both leaders and followers. See how the jazz material you learned in Lindy Hop 3 can work with your partner out on the social dance floor. Filmed in 1999 in Buenos Aires. Produced by LSD Films (approx. 60 mins.)
