Weekly Level 1 Classes

Dancing looks hard, even scary…SO SCARY!. But it’s really not.. Dancing is fun and exciting (regardless of whether you’re getting it “wrong” or not). The best way to get into dancing is to start from a point of having fun and that’s what our Level 1 classes are all about. We know you’re worried you might “get it wrong”, we also know you’ve probably never danced in your life (except for what they make you do at school) but that’s absolutely okay. Join in on our Level 1 classes and we’ll show you why dancing is fun and absolutely not scary at all.

Level 1 

Never done Swing dancing before?

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, so you can start whenever you like.  No experience or partner necessary and no need to book, 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 you can move up to Level 2. When you turn up let our friendly teaching staff know this is your first night and they’ll make sure you’re looked after.

FAQ

Yes but it starts when you do. We cover the basic steps every week so each class is designed to be someone’s first. Each week you’ll cover the basics and then learn new material. There’s a five week rotating syllabus and you can start at any time. Think of it as a course that starts when you do.

It’s best to come every week as there’s new moves and material each time and consistent learning has great benefits. However if you miss a week (or a few) due to work or life then you can easily do a make up class to catch up on the material you missed.

Within a week each venue is covering a different number of our rotating syllabus. Subiaco on Monday might be teaching Week 1 while North Perth is teaching Week 2 or 3. So if you miss a week then you can easily catch up on the number you missed within the next week by going to more than one venue. As long as you’re covering Weeks 1 – 5 you’re all good, and you can do that in any order and, if you like, by doing more than one class in a week.

Not at all. Your goal is to cover the five weeks of material and you can move between venues whenever you choose as you do this.

Not at all, you can simply turn up to your first class.

No, we rotate partners in the class so you don’t need to bring a partner but we know it won’t take long before you’re bringing your friends!

Drink bottle, casual clothes, flat soled shoes…smile.

We accept cash at the door. If you go to Monday night in Subiaco or Tuesday night in North Perth we also accept card or smart phone payments.

Unless you’ve had experience with Lindy Hop before you can’t. As dance professionals ourselves we strongly believe in learning a new dance from its foundation. Every dance is uniquely different and never more so than in the foundation and basic structure of the dance. We also teach basic moves like the Swing Out that are a requirement for moving into Level 2, without these you’re unable to attend that level.

The Level 1 syllabus covers 5 weeks of material. We continually cycle through all the moves and rhythms you need to know at this level so it doesn’t matter when you start. After 5 weeks you’ll want to be thinking of moving up or at least doing Level 1 & 2 together.
