This swing style takes notes from jazz, tap, breakaway and the Charleston. This lighthearted and high energy dance soared in popularity in the ‘30s and ‘40s and still inspires to this day.

Learn the classic Charleston dance! The rhythm was popularized in mainstream dance music in the United States by a 1923 tune called "The Charleston" by composer James P. Johnson which originated in the Broadway show Runnin' Wild.  When the dance hit Harlem, it evolved faster kicking steps and tap elements leading the Charleston to become one of the most popular hits of the roaring ‘20s.

Members - $25.00 / Non-Members - $30.00

Beginner students are invited to expand their drawing skills with a live model and instruction from Paul Beelitz. We’ll warm up with gesture drawings, explore contour drawing, and straight line drawing as we work from more basic linear figure poses. We’ll learn about negative space and how it can help with proportion, too. Other exercises will help us develop mass, balance, and a proportionally accurate figure. Continuing and advanced students are welcome to participate in the class or work independently on figure study. You're welcome to bring any of your own supplies. Please note that the model will be nude.

We will review basic composition with an eye to how to highlight food color and texture. After discussion, the remainder of the workshop will be in the kitchen. We will work together to make a simple fresh dish. There will be photography breaks along the way and plenty of taste-testing! We will take turns organizing good layouts and setups and discuss the lighting techniques for certain types of photos. We will also discuss how this type of photography can be illustrative for things like blog post recipes or cookbooks. Bring your DSLR camera or high quality camera phone. (Those with camera phones will not be able to take long exposure water shots.)
