Beginner Series

If you’re new to the swing family of dances and are interested in trying them out, then this series is the perfect starting point! Taught by friendly and knowledgeable instructors who are passionate about the swing dances, teaching, and the vibrant community of welcoming dancers in our city, you’ll quickly find yourself among friends. Topics covered in this class include:

  • the basic rhythm patterns of the Lindy Hop (6-count and 8-count)

  • basic patterns, including several different turns

  • the swing-out, the namesake of our club and the quintessential Lindy Hop move

  • partner connection

  • and the Charleston (1930’s)

By the end of this series, and with some practice, you’ll be social-dancing comfortably and have a fairly well-developed repertoire among two distinguished dances! You’ll also be in a position to take your dancing to the next level by enrolling in our Intermediate series!
