Classes with Tony & Aurelie Tye are offered in 6 week sessions throughout the year. Hop to the Beat specializes in the Lindy Hop style of Swing as well as Balboa, Charleston and other related dances. Newton classes have been running since 1995, with a new Boston location added in 2010. Classes have a fun, relaxed atmosphere, emphasizing lead/follow connection, rhythm, musicality, technique and styling. Each class consists of a 1 hour lesson per week for 6 weeks. It is possible to join a class in its second week. No partner required, singles and couples welcome. These are adult classes, but teens may also attend. Partners are rotated during classes, which is highly recommend as it is not only very helpful for learning, but also a fun way to meet classmates. Everyone is encouraged to give it a try, although rotating is not a requirement for attending. Locations are easily accessible by car and T.
