Classes

Our beginning swing dance classes are run in monthly series. We teach 3 different curricula, rotating  each month.

  • Series A focuses on the 4, 6, and 8-count patterns of the dance, including tuck turns, pass-bys, and jig walks.
  • Series B focuses on the 8-count Lindy Hop basic as well as primary variations on the form, including swing outs and circles.
  • Series C focuses on the Charleston, as well as variations on that basic form including kick through, hand-to-hand, and tandem.

History, musicality, improvisation, and connection skills are woven into every series we teach.
