I finally learned the name of the dance group we taught Lindy Hop to. Tres Generaciones which means Three Generations.
This February we spent three nights teaching them Charleston, some lifts and an entire dance routine for their recital this weekend.
They did a great job, especially since people were absent some nights, some lifts just didn’t work, and Trevor and I changed the choreography halfway through. And it took a lot of practice learning to clap on the even beats….hahaha. or should I write….jajaja
This group usually does more traditional Puerto Rican dances but the theme for this year’s show is “Time Machine” so the needed something from the 1930s/40s. yay!
I wish we had another night with them to really polish it up, but oh well.
I love the Charleston dance that you showed the kids. It was fabulous. Where were the classes given? I am sorry that I had not heard of it before. That is my husbands hometown and we would’ve gone.
The classes we taught were in San German in the big room behind Tapas Cafe. We were invited to teach them through the Tres Generaciones organizers. I’m not sure what the enrollment/entrance is to get into that group. We taught the Lindy Hop to the same dance group last fall. 🙂

That Charleston was great! I’m going to be traveling to Puerto Rico. Do you know of a place on the Island that I could take a lesson or social dance?
There’s no social swing dance anywhere in Puerto Rico :(. If you’ll be on the west coast there are salsa options
That’s so surprising 🙁 but thank you
Hopefully that will change someday!
