BEES’ KNEES DANCE ROCK N’ ROLL CLUB

Shake, Rattle and Roll with Bees’ Knees Dance rock ‘n’ roll classes!

Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis – these are just some of the greats of 1950s rock’n’roll, and their music provides the backdrop to our Sunday night classes.
.
Popular music changed after World War II and inspired a new way to move, based in part on Lindy Hop, but with its own styling and moves. Rock’n’roll dancing followed the music and branched into boogie woogie and rockabilly jive.  Both styles of dance are bouncy and fun, sure to make your heart smile.

JOIN THE BKD ROCK N’ ROLL CLUB

Beginner classes start every month.  We spend one month on boogie woogie basics and one month on rockabilly jive basics; it doesn’t matter which one you learn first.  Some people repeat the beginner curriculum for extra practice before moving to our 1.5 level to add polish and pizzazz.
.
Both styles are partnered social dances.  We rotate partners in class, which actually makes it easier to learn and allows you to meet more people.

SOCIAL DANCING

Classes are fun, but the real joy comes when you’re out social dancing to one of your favourite bands.  We always encourage our students to come join us on the dance floor at the many local events we enjoy in Toronto.  You can keep on top of these events in our Facebook group.
