   Lesson Descriptions:   
Progressive Beginner Balboa:
Balboa (Bal) is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the 1920's and 30's. Balboa is known for its focus on connection, footwork, spins, and turns. It is often danced to faster music, but it can also be enjoyed at slower music tempos. Never seen Balboa? Check it out HERE
Prerequisites: None 
Progressive Tranky Doo:
Along with the Shim-Sham and the Big Apple, the Tranky Doo completes the holy trinity of the original swing-era jazz routines. Choreographed in the mid-1940s by Frankie Manning, and inspired by jazz steps danced by a dancer with the stage name "Tranky Doo," it is an essential routine for every swing dancer to learn. Solo jazz routines enable dancers to learn new footwork variations to include in their dancing. You will often find that the "fancy" moves people do while their swing dancing are simply jazz steps incorporated into their social dancing. Never seen the Tranky Doo? Check it out HERE.   
Prerequisites: None
Drop-In Charleston: 
Charleston is the heart beat of what eventually became Lindy Hop. The dance is incredibly versatile and an essential tool to add to your swing dance repertoire. The beginner class will cover some basic Charleston shapes that you can use on the dance floor right away, while the Intermediate class will take those shapes to the next level with new variations to use on the social floor.
