We're still offering four track levels of Lindy Hop classes from world class instructors! Here's a quick run down of what to expect in each:
Welcome to swing dance! This track is progressive throughout the weekend, and will take you through many of the fundamental bits that make up the dance. You'll be social dancing comfortably at a variety of tempos by the end of the weekend!
You're a regular social swing dancer, with a solid grasp of 6 count and 8 count patterns, including swingouts and Charleston. You're looking for some more vocabulary to add to your dancing and some polish on what you've already got.
INTERMEDIATE-PLUS (Audition Required)
You're good at this! If you compete you make finals sometimes, and regardless you're a sought-after dance partner on any floor. You're probably one of the better dancers in your home scene, and you're looking for quality over quantity.
ADVANCED (Audition Required)
You travel to other big events regularly. You can name all of the dancers in the old clips. You've been at this swing thing long enough that you are really into the idea of dancing well, and don't care so much about tricks (though you'll probably learn some of those too).
There will be a sampling of open-level taster classes throughout the weekend in various dances of the swing era! We highly recommend stretching yourself to try some of these fun new ways to enjoy the music.
We have an open level Balboa track available this year too! Want to learn what Balboa is all about? Get your basics cleaned up by world-class teachers? This is the one for you!
