Progressive Beginner Lindy Hop:
Lindy Hop (Lindy) is the "granddaddy" of all modern swing dances. It's an athletic and playful dance that grooves to both vintage and modern music. If you learn Lindy, the technique and patterns will easily transfer over into all other swing dance styles (West Coast, Country Swing, Jive, etc.) The class will focus on creating a strong Lindy foundation: technique, styling, connection, and a few flashy moves.
Level: BEGINNER. Prerequisites: None
Progressive Beginner/Intermediate Collegiate Shag:
Collegiate Shag, also known as Shag, is a partnered dance done mostly to mid-tempo or faster music from the swing era. This class will cover the steps for the most common form of Shag called Double Rhythm Shag, which consists of a six count basic. You’ll learn the fundamentals of Collegiate Shag and some new flashy footwork, different timing rhythms, turns, kicks, and hops!
Level: BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE. Prerequisites: None
