Lindy Hop/Swing Classes Start Next Week

Swing Dance ClassOur next 6 week session of classes will be starting next Sunday, February 26 in Newton Lower Falls and next Monday, February 27 in Boston (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 add to 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.

For both Level 1 and Level 2 classes, there are about 7 or 8 different sessions of each. They do not need to be taken in any particular order and it is okay to join with any session.

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.

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