6:30-7:30pm Lindy Hop/Beginner Swing Level 1 (6 weeks)
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. This session will include swing outs, one of the most fundamental defining elements of Lindy Hop! Discount after 2 full sessions. No experience required.
7:30-8:00pm Stay after class for practice!
8:00-9:00pm Lindy Hop/Jazz Routine (6 weeks)
This routine will include a mix of partner and some solo dancing. The focus while learning the steps will be on rhythm and musicality. Learning choreography is fun, challenging, and a great way to work on your individual and social dance skills! Doing the routine will still require good lead-follow partnering, which will be emphasized in class. The plan will be primarily to learn the full routine. An interest in performing is not needed to take this session. It is aimed at intermediate to advanced Lindy Hoppers. A partner is not required, however, for those interested in continuing, it would be helpful to join with a partner.
Part 2 of this class will continue in the following session. The focus will be on performance, teamwork, formation and practice. Besides haven taken Part 1, it will require a partner.
9:00-9:30pm Stay after class for practice!
