New Session Lindy Hop/Swing and Balboa Classes

Our first 6 week session of 2011 starts on Sunday, January 9 in Newton Lower Falls and on Monday, January 10 in Boston. Both locations include classes in Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop Level 1 and Lindy Hop Level 2. 

Included on Sundays in Newton is a Partner Charleston class covering a new variety of moves to add to your Lindy Hop repertoire while focusing on execution and pizazz to make it look really cool:-) This class will be for intermediate to advanced Lindy Hoppers.

Included on Mondays in Boston is a Beginning Balboa class. We’ll be covering the core moves as well as technique and style that gives Balboa its own special flavor. This class will be ideal for those new to Balboa as well as those wanting to review and refine basics.

If you have any friends interested in getting into dancing, lessons are a great way to get started. Please pass on the info!
