Breaking Out of Your Basics
We’ll take traditional Lindy Hop basics and alter them in structure and movement. This will help to develop your sense of connecting with your partner, add variety to your Lindy Hop and help you to learn to think in terms of improvising in your dancing. The class will be for intermediate to higher level Lindy Hoppers. No partner required. This class meets on Sundays in Newton.
