 On Saturday, October 11, 2014, Jerome and Bonnie Subey will be teaching West Coast Swing Private Lessons and Workshops in Norwalk, CT. Jerome and Bonnie are one of the top West Coast Swing All-Star couples in the region. They are known for their funky, hip-hop style dancing and their amazing Mohawk hair. They are also one of the top, consistent competitors in their division, bringing an edgy feel and look to their dance. They met and married on the dance floor and continue to excite audiences every time they dance together and with other partners.

These workshops will explore what makes West Coast Swing interesting and unique. Jerome and Bonnie will teach their nuances of connection and partnering, guide you to more creative leading and following, then inspire you with their special edgy "Mohawk" moves workshop, to show you how all their technique and moves can be applied if you treat your dance like a game.  It's going to be a fun day with a very creative couple.

Of course, both Jerome and Bonnie are available for private lessons before the workshops for those who would like to maximize these artists' first venture in Connecticut.

Communication is crucial in daily life, and no less so in partner dance.  In this class we will discuss 3 major ways we communicate in dance, how they impact the dance experience, and how to communicate more effectively.  Included in this course are fundamental connection concepts which, if you have already learned, are important to frequently review, and if you haven't, will improve your dance immensely.

* You must know the basic rhythm and footwork of WCSwing to attend this class and be able to sustain a basic level social dance.

6:00pm - Creating Space for Creative Dancing

Level: Adv Beg

Finding time and space to express yourself while you're dancing can be very challenging, especially when you're trying to remember the movements, traverse the subtleties of connection and still stay on the beat.  We will show you a simple push break variation that will give you better connection sooner and allow you space to play.  If you don't think you're a creative type, don't worry, we'll show you a footwork variation or two so you can play in class and beyond!

8:30pm - The WCS Games

Jerome-Bonnie-heads-togetherMore About Jerome and Bonnie Subey

Bonnie and Jerome met on the dance floor, and from their first contact, the passion was apparent. Even though they come from different countries (with different languages!) and different dance backgrounds, their dance styles complete one another, giving Jerome and Bonnie a specific style entirely their own. Their complementarity as a couple brings out the passion they have for dancing, teaching, and always wanting to improve.

Jerome Subey

Jerome has been dancing since he was 3 years old, starting with ballet for two years. Then he did Hip Hop for over 10 years. At 19 he started his first couples dance, Rock'n'Roll, followed by Boogie and Lindy Hop, before going to West Coast Swing in 2008. In order to provide quality lessons he trained to teach WCS Duodanse in France. Then he spent one year in Montreal to continue educating himself with professional American dancers and to compete. By the end of only 1 year of competition he went from Novice to All-star level and received two PDIA teaching diplomas.

Bonnie Subey

Bonnie started West Coast Swing dancing at 14 and hasn't looked back. Prior to that, she did a little gymnastics and some bellydance, which gave her a unique foundation for West Coast. Since falling in love with West Coast Swing, Bonnie has dabbled in Salsa, Blues, Lindy, Balboa, Hip Hop, Bachata, and what little Modern she learned in an intro college class, as well as trying to follow anything anyone tried to throw at her. Bonnie's versatility, musicality and strength make her a formidable dancer, but her patience, understanding and experience make her an excellent teacher.
