Emanuel Community Center has a new tenant, and they’re opening their doors with a vintage bang. The Living History Dance School will be hosting its grand opening workshop on Sunday, June 5th, beginning at 2 pm. Sunday’s swing workshop will be a Blues Crash Course for all levels of dancers– including those who have never danced before.
“What makes swing dancing so special is that anyone can do it,” says co-founder Mike (the Girl) Legett. “You can be in college or retired. You don’t need a partner; you don’t even need rhythm. If you’re willing to have a good time, that’s what we’ll do.”
Recent transplants to Cincinnati, co-founders Mike Legett and Dan Rosenthal have taught all over the country and won many awards. But what drives them, they say, is social dancing. They want to bring back the charm of partner dancing, while keeping their classes fresh with modern energy. Living History Dance School’s mission is to bring the joy of swing-era dance and music to an audience that might otherwise never be exposed to it. In July they’ll be teaching Charleston, the iconic dance from the roaring 20′s.
