We will be teaching a Crash Course for Lindy Hop. So come see what this vintage swing dance is all about. Kari and Shannon will give you the basics. You will learn some footwork and patterns to get you out on the dance floor and having fun. Whether you have taken a Lindy Hop class in the past and need to practice those skills, or have never tried it, this class will provide the foundations. It’s a reason this dance has survived since the swing era– come find out for yourself. No partner required! We are friendly social group and will rotate partners in class.
6 Count Swing is often used together with 8 count Lindy Hop so that we can dance with more “swingy” syncopations. Come learn some 6 ct. swing to into your Lindy Hop.
