How It Works

Class ProgressOur class structure allows for a beginner with little or no experience to start off with a Level 1A class and continuously progress to a higher level, eventually reaching our advanced level of classes. Generally, each class is four weeks long, and is scheduled so that students can move smoothly into the next class in the progression.

We recommend that new students start from the beginning, even if you've learned six count (or "East Coast") swing elsewhere.  The reason for this is that our two Level 1 classes are not strictly six-count. They offer much more, incorporating styling and patterns normally found in Lindy Hop classes.  In other words, we get you primed to be Lindy Hoppers from the very beginning!

As you move through the path of your classes, you will get all the essential experience and moves you need to get out on the dance floor and feel confident in your dancing.

Once you complete the first four classes in Level 1 and Level 2, you will have all the basics down.  We have many different Level 3 classes, and you will be ready to jump into any of them.  Topics range from Tempo and Style to Musicality to Partnered Charleston and more, and they do not need to be taken in any specific order.

Another essential part of your Lindy Hop education is social dancing!  You can learn a lot in class, but if you don't put it into practice it won't have a chance to sink in.  The best place to practice is at our weekly Wednesday dance,  Lindy Jam.

We also offer private and small group lessons. Private lessons are an especially valuable way to learn, as they allow you to work directly with an instructor at a pace that is perfect for you.
