HOW IT WORKS

 

  • No need for a dance partner – just come along!
  • We usually rotate partners throughout the class as we have seen that this is the best way to learn to dance in a social setting.
  • It is also a really fun way to learn and a great way of meeting new people and making friends.
  • We pride ourselves on the welcoming environment of our classes.

WHICH LEVEL AM I?

This class is for complete beginners. Whether you have never danced Lindy Hop, or anything else for that matter, this class will equip you with the basics. You can expect to learn 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop, 20s and 30s Charleston basics, and a few fun variations. You can drop in any time, as every week we teach the basics. Students typically stay in the Beginner classes for anything from 2 - 4 months. All of our classes have a level 1.
This class is for dancers who have some experience of 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop and Charleston and are comfortable in the Beginner class. If you would like to go beyond the basics, learn some new steps, and sharpen technique, this is the class for you.
This class is for intermediate dancers who would like to take it up a notch and learn some more challenging steps and variations. You will also learn about musicality and rhythm and refine your lead/ follow technique.
This is a more advanced class for dancers who have been swing dancing for a minimum of about 2-3 years and are regularly on the social dance floor. You will be looking to hone your technique and improve the quality of your dancing, as well as learning some amazing new steps and variations. You will have a strong grasp of the basics and be prepared to spend a lot of time working on areas such as momentum, pulse, led/follow connection, rhythm and musicality. If you are unsure if you are ready, please do approach our lovely teachers for guidance.
