New Classes Start This Week!

Lindy Hop Swing Dance ClassOur new 6 week session starts this Sunday, January 8 at the Newton Lower Falls Community Center in Newton and this Monday, January 9 at Ruggles Baptist Church in Boston near Fenway Park. Here is what’s coming up:

  • Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop - This class is for both brand new dancers and those with some experience who would like to build a stronger foundation and gain more confidence on the dance floor. Six count basics are covered along with a different selection of fun steps each session. There are 7 different sessions at this level, which can be taken in any order, providing the opportunity to develop a good base for social dancing while continuing to learn new steps. If you have any friends who have been wanting to get started, please send them along! This class meets in both Newton and Boston.
  • Lindy Hop Level 2 - This class is aimed at intermediate level Swing dancers who can already comfortably social dance any style of triple-step Swing. It is not necessary to already know Lindy Hop. The class focuses on core moves, including a mix of 8 and 6 count basics, emphasizing technique and lead-follow connection. There are 8 different sessions at this level which continually change over time and can be taken in any order. Each session includes a mix of classic Charleston moves and newer variations. This class meets in Newton and Boston.
  • Partner Charleston, Flashy Variations and Transitions - This is a new class aimed at more experienced Lindy Hop dancers and meets in the Newton location only. Charleston is a very fun component of Lindy Hop and works really well with more uptempo music. This class will include cool variations and will also focus on some flashy transitions. If you are interested in an energetic, challenging and fun class, this will be a good class for you!
