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.

8:00-9:00pm Lindy Hop/Jazz Routine, Part 2 (6 weeks)
We’ve learned the routine and are moving to the next stage. The focus will be on performance, teamwork, formation and details, lots of details! This session requires attending with a partner. There will be opportunities to perform after the session is completed and that is what we’ll be aiming for. Performing requires practicing! Be prepared to practice as needed on your own time and in group rehearsals. It will take some commitment, and be challenging, but mostly it will be FUN!
