Level 2: Lindy Hop
Fundamentals of Lindy Hop (Level 2A)
The Lindy Hop is the original high-energy partnered jazz dance, invented during the late 1920s in Harlem and popularized in the '30s and '40s. During this four-week series students will use the skills learned in our level 1 classes as a basis for Lindy Hop. Students will learn the fundamentals of the dance, swing outs and other classic moves that made Lindy Hop so popular.
