This is a great dance to know for Weddings as it can easily be danced to a variety of music and is one of the easiest partner dances to learn. The classes will focus on technique while learning the new fancy moves to incorporate into your dancing. Recommended for those who have never danced before and want to learn OR those who have danced for years and want to improve their skills with techniques from our instructors who have been teaching for us since the start of the club in 1999. How will we manage this?…we have teaching assistants for individual help.

The Lindy Hop (or Lindy) is a partner dance that originated in 1920’s and 30’s Harlem, New York. The Dance itself consists of both 8 and 6 count steps and it includes footwork borrowed from the Charleston and Tap. Must know the basics of East Coast Swing. Recommended for intermediate and advanced dancers. The swing-out workshop is designed for those who want to improve their swing-out techniques (before ATLX) and make the swing-out awesome with every partner!
