Lindy Hop/Swing Classes Starting this Week

Swing Dance ClassOur new 6 week session starts this Sunday, April 21 at the Lower Falls Community Center in Newton and this Monday, April 22 at Ruggles Baptist Church in Boston near Fenway Park. You do not need to attend with a partner for any of the classes. Here is what’s coming up:

  • Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop: This class is for brand new dancers, those with some experience, and continuing students 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 refine lead-follow skills. 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 to get started. The class focuses on core moves, including a mix of 8 and 6 count basics, emphasizing technique, lead-follow connection and musicality. 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 and newer variations. This class meets in Newton and Boston.
  • Variations Aplenty!: This is a new class aimed at more experienced Lindy Hop dancers and meets in the Newton location only. We’ll take fundamental moves such as swing outs, underarm turn, Texas Tommy and passes, adding twists and turns to create something new and unexpected. Included will be both classic and new footwork variations for swing outs. If you like to work on rhythm variations and new ways to change up your Lindy Hop, this will be a great class for you!

This is our last class session before Beantown Camp!
