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, with one
class per week, and is scheduled so that students can move smoothly
into the next class in the progression.
Groove Juice Swing teaches classes in all of the major swing
dance styles of the Jazz Era, including Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz,
Charleston, Balboa, Collegiate Shag, and more! We
recommend that new students start from the beginning in Swing 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. If you have
any questions about where you should start, feel free to send us an
email and we will help.
Social Dancing: 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 dance, Lindy Jam.
More Classes: There is a wide world of
swing dancing, and there are many different Improver, Intermediate,
Experienced, or Advanced level 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. Each
class listing has it's own prerequisites to ensure everyone can get
the most out of a class, but generally students will need to at
least have completed Swing 3.
To help guide dancers through their learning and
give you some fun perks to reward your progress, we have introduced
our Level Progression Booklets! You can check out all the details
on our Level Progression
Private Lessons: 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.
