Lindy Hop I

Note: You must have taken at least 1 month of East Coast Swing lessons to take this class.

Sometimes referred to as Jitterbug, Lindy Hop is the original swing dance. It was born in the ballrooms of Harlem in the 1920s. Inspired by the syncopated sounds of jazz and swing, young African Americans created a dance that matched the music’s joyful spirit.

Now that you’re experienced with East Coast Swing, it’s time to learn the more challenging steps of Lindy Hop. Unlike performance style, with its lifts and aerials, we’ll be keeping our feet on the ground. And since East Coast Swing and Lindy can be danced together, we’ll also cover how to transition between 6- and 8-count patterns.

Pre-Requisite: At least 1 month East Coast Swing experience. No partner necessary.

Price: $25 for 4-week series
