Every Friday for thirty weeks, I will write about a topic from the list of the
“30 Week Lindy Hop Challenge“.
This week, I'm talking about:
Week #9: Favorite class taken – Not a dance class, though
It was in 2005 at Waterkant Jam, a Lindy Hop festival in Hamburg Germany.
Lennart Westerlund, yes THE Lennart, was teaching a musicality class with live band.
He was talking about the structure of jazz and the band was playing what he was talking about.
I would say, to have a live band in class was at that time quite unique.
But that's only half of the story.
If you know Lennart, then you know that he does things always a little bit differently.
So, he was talking about the AABA structure. Therefore he lined up three apples and another fruit as a visual example. Then he started to eat pieces of two apples to illustrate, that not all of the ‘A's in the AABA structure are exactly the same.
It was hilarious!
Could one show you that in a more memorable way?
