This class gets a mix of brand new dancers as well as continuing students. There are several different sessions at this level, each with new content, which can be taken in any order. Students are recommended to stay at this level long enough both to cover many of the important elements of Lindy Hop as well as to feel very comfortable with what’s taught before moving to the next level. The aim is to work on developing a solid foundation of dance skills while building a repertoire of moves for social dancing. Discount after 2 full sessions. No experience required.

Included will be rebounds in swing outs, a horse and cart into a medley of moves, and a classic Charleston with a twisty ending. Previous Lindy Hop experience is required, including knowledge of 8 count basics. (For intermediate and up.)
Admission: Covers 6 weeks of lessons.
