New block of classes will start on April, 2 2019. The courses will include 12 classes and last till July, 5 2019 (with a spring break 27/04-5/05).
For Beginners 2, we kindly ask that you have 2-4 months of Lindy Hop experience.
This means that you know the difference between 6 and 8-counts and moves like the send out, bring in, underarm turn, yo-yo, change of place, and the circle. It means that you feel confident that you can survive on the dance floor if the music is relatively slow. You will learn to refine the moves you already know, and you will be taught new Lindy Hop fundamentals, like the swing-out.
For Beginners 3 we kindly ask that you have 4-8 months of Lindy Hop experience.
This means that your bounce is stable and your triple steps are floor-connected and clear. It entails that you know the beginners’ level moves, lindy circle, tuck turn, swing out, modest jumps and variations that you can put into your dance breaks. We expect that you can go social dancing and feel comfortable at mid-tempo music.
For the Intermediate Course, we kindly ask that you have completed our beginner 1-3 courses or have about a year of experience dancing lindy hop. If you are not solid in your basic steps, even if you have done intermediate classes before, please consider taking the beginner 3 course one more time. We expect that you are comfortable and confident in your lindy circle, swing out, some variations as well as general social dancing. You keep taking Intermediate level classes until you are promoted by your teachers to the Intermediate Plus level (you can also ask if you can be upgraded and get some feedback).
Each block we offer you a new curriculum for Intermediate level, so you won’t get bored. We will be working with improvisation, variations of known moves, and new ones!
Our Intermediate + class allows us to group our students with those of a similar level and learning speed so that everyone has the best experience possible. Intermediate + students social dance often, are comfortable at a variety of speeds, frequently incorporate variations, and are confident in their fundamentals. These students are confident incorporating different dance stylings (Charleston and partner Charleston) as well the principles of improvisation and musicality into their dancing.
At this point in time, the course is by invitation only and you will be notified if you have been placed in this group. Please feel free to talk to us if you feel uncomfortable with your placement.
