Once you’ve completed the material from Intro to Swing to your satisfaction, you’re ready to get a whole lot more dancing in your Swing! At this point, you’ve learned most of the most commonly known basic Lindy hop steps and patterns, and it’s time to get them feeling more awesome (for you and your partner) at a wider range of tempos and with more variations.
Lindy Hop Essentials (Swing 3) is where we mix and match all the prior Swing series material, add a few more, and increase your comfort with a wider range of tempos. We also add some variations on moves you already know and love, to further enrich your social dancing vocabulary and your understanding of connecting with the music and a partner.
This is a program for dedicated and experienced Lindyhoppers: choreography, performance, and private focussed instruction on technique and high-level material.
Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California in the 1920s and 30s. Built for speed and crowded ballrooms, balboa is characterized by driving rhythm and strong partner connection. This class will focus on pure balboa, which is danced in a close embrace. No experience necessary. Learn a new dance, plus improve your partner, rhythm, and Lindy hop skills!
Solo Jazz is an essential element of Lindy hop and its history. There are vintage routines Swing dancers around the world know and enjoy dancing together, and there are fun, musical, and dynamic ways of incorporating your Solo Jazz into your partner dancing!
Lindy hop for experienced Swing dancers: improve your partner connection skills and musical responsiveness. Gain skills and experience to expand your tempo versatility, learn complex moves, and more!
The Lab is on pause for the time being. Ask about our team program, starting summer 2023 and continuing through the fall.
