Where do you start?

Lindy Hop

Weekly Classes

Level 1

Never done Swing dancing before?  This is where you start. Each weekly class is designed to be someone’s first while at the same time offering new moves and material.  No experience or partner necessary and you can start whenever you like just turn up!  The Level 1 syllabus covers 5 weeks of material but it doesn’t matter when you start, imagine it as a course that starts whenever you do.  Once you’ve done your 5 weeks in Level 1 it’s time to move up to Level 2.

Level 2 

You’ve been in Level 1 for 5 weeks or so and now you’re looking to try something a little harder. Here you learn new moves, new rhythms and a whole lot of new variations you can add to the moves you already know. Level 1 was your introduction but here’s where you really see how big the Swing world can get.

Level 3

Here we explore the moves and rhythms of the Lindy Hop further with a greater emphasis on lead and follow techniques, musical appreciation and of course FUN!  The moves will become a little trickier and the speeds will be faster.

Before taking part, students must have attended Level 2 regularly for 6 months or more.  They must display a good understanding of rhythm and pulse, a good understanding of the Swing Out and must know: Texas Tommy, Back Charleston, Hand to Hand Charleston, Sugar Push.
