The new session of classes starts this Monday, April 13 at Ruggles Baptist Church in Boston (on Beacon Street near Kenmore Square) and next Sunday, April 19 at the Lower Falls Community Center in Newton. We’ll be having another 5 week class session instead of the usual 6 (due to lingering effects of snow cancellations).
No partner required for Levels 1 and 2 as classes will rotate. The 2nd part of the routine class will be with a partner.
- Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop Level 1
Appropriate for anyone starting out as well as those with some experience who are working on building a solid foundation of dance skills. Includes six count basics, an intro to eight count basics, along with a variety of fun steps to build your repertoire and get you out on the dance floor! Meets in both locations.
- Lindy Hop Level 2
For more intermediate level Swing dancers, some prior Lindy Hop experience is helpful. 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. Meets in Newton only this session.
- Lindy Hop/Jazz Routine, Part 2
Part 1 has been challenging, but a lot of fun! Part 2 will continue to work on movement, rhythm and musicality. In addition, focus will be on performance, teamwork, formation and practice. The class is for those who took the first part and will be continuing with a partner.
Singles and couples welcome. No partner necessary. Both locations are conveniently accessible by car or T with free parking available. Missed classes may be made up at the alternate location.
