Lindy Hop Essentials

Please read our welcome message and health and safety class policy

Once you’ve completed the material from Intro to Swing to your satisfaction, you’re ready for Lindy Hop Essentials. This means 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 students enjoy a discounted admission of $5 to the regular DJ'ed weekly dance, Rhythm City Strut. Subscribe to our youtube channel for practice/review/recap videos.

  • $60 / $65 at the door (4 weeks)
  • $30 limited subsidized access available for low incomes
  • All prices include GST
  • Mask-wearing is recommended, though not required, so please be considerate of others’ decision to mask or not, and be prepared to put on a mask as a courtesy to your dance partner if they request it.

Locations:

Swing 3 at iDance Studio, 257 East 7th Avenue, 7:45-8:45pm

Swing 4 at EDAM Studio, 303 East 8th Avenue, 6:15-7:15pm

Swing 3: Swing out

Connect the moves you learned in Swing 1 and 2 in a more swingin’ and flowing way and add on with some more complex moves, variations, and solo dancing. Lindy hop, as a partnered dance, often incorporates “breaking away” from your partner for open solo play and dancing. Learn and practice how to make this a comfortable and rhythmical part of your partner connection. 

Swing 4: Lindy Hop Essentials

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, the further enrich your social dancing vocabulary and your understanding of connecting with the music and a partner. Swing 4: get set for Intermediate.
