Level 1 – Absolute beginners class | 2.30pm – 3.30pm
These classes are for new dancers and there is no experience required. We go over the basics every week and then throw in some new moves to get you dancing in no time. This class is drop-in, so you don’t need to book in advance and you don’t need to bring a partner.
Level 1.5 – Improvers class | 3.30pm – 4.30pm
This class focuses on a whole array of things, and will vary each week. We will work on technique and tips to get your dancing feeling really good. To do this class you will sometimes need to have a basic grasp of 6-beat Lindy Hop, 8-beat Lindy hop, Side-by-side Charleston and Tandem Charleston, but most weeks are also geared towards beginners in both classes, so listen out in level 1 for more info. If you need a quick refresher just ask before the class. We will also go into other styles that come under the umbrella name of ‘Swing’, including Blues, Balboa, and Solo jazz.
Level 2 – Classic Routines class | 4.45pm – 5.45pm
For the next few months our Level 2 class is working on classic routines- mostly involving solo jazz and charleston, with the occassional partnered routine also in the line up.
