New Session Lindy Hop/Swing Classes

Swing Dance ClassOur first session of the new year is winding down this week and plans for the next 6 week session are up on the website. Sunday classes in Newton start on February 26 and Monday classes in Boston start on February 27 (near Fenway Park). Both locations include a class in Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop Level 1, appropriate for brand new dancers, those with some previous experience and continuing students. If you would like to work on building a solid foundation of dance skills, this will be an ideal class. Six count basics will be covered along with a variety of fun steps to build your repertoire and get you out on the dance floor!

Lindy Hop Level 2 is also offered in both locations. This class is aimed at more intermediate level Swing dancers and no prior Lindy Hop experience is required. Eight and six count basics will be mixed along with a variety of classic Lindy Hop, newer variations, and a focus on partnering, technique and style.

Also on Sundays, we’ll be teaching the Lindy Chorus, which is a classic partner routine choreographed by Frankie Manning and known to Lindy Hoppers around the world. We first learned the Lindy Chorus in 1999 when we joined about 120 couples in NYC to perform for Frankie at his 85th birthday celebration. We have had several opportunities to perform it since then, including beside Frankie himself! In his honor, we’ll be teaching it this session. Join us for this fun class! This class is aimed at intermediate to advanced Lindy Hoppers and you do not need to attend with a partner.

We are always striving to bring new people into the dance community and classes are a great first step. Most of our new students come from recommendations and we really appreciate all of your help to keep our community growing and thriving! If you have any friends interested in getting into dancing, please pass on the info!
