How It Works
Our class structure allows for a beginner with little or no
experience to start off with an intro 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
We recommend that new students start from the beginning in Swing
1, Charleston 1, Balboa 1, or Tap 1 even if you've learned six
count (or "East Coast") swing elsewhere. 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.
There is a wide world of swing dancing, and there are many
different Intermediate/Advanced classes that are offered
year-round. Topics range from Tempo and Style to Musicality to Slow
Dancing and more, and they do not need to be taken in any specific
order. Students who have completed Swing 4 qualify for these
Intermediate/Advanced Lindy Hop classes.
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.
