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.
Your journey starts right here!
We’re so excited that our classes have finally returned and we’d love to see you there. Our biggest focus is on you having the best beginner experience we can offer. Our focus as always is to make sure you’re comfortable, welcome and having the most amount of fun you can while learning the basics of this amazing dance. Read on below for all your Level 1 info…
Start when you like
The best part about our Level 1 classes is you don’t need any experience whatsoever. The next best thing? You can start whenever you like.
All of our Level 1 classes run as “drop in” classes. That means new people can start each week and we’ll always be covering the important basic steps of the dance. We start you off with the basics every class and then give you different material to have fun with.
Five weeks is all you need
It’s not a “course” but there’s five weeks of material in Level 1 and it’s constantly repeated. That means if you come for five weeks, regardless of when you start, you’ll have learned everything you need to know to move to Level 2.
Or, if you wish, you can stay in Level 1 until you’re comfortable with the material and then you can move up. The choice is yours!
$15 per class (cash or card are accepted at all venues).
Almost, think of it as a course that 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.
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.
Not at all, you can simply turn up to your first class.
You won’t need a partner as we change partners in all of our classes. Dancing with different people is an essential part of the culture and one of the best ways to improve!

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.
