Our Thursday classes feature intermediate level sequences in East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop, and are held on a drop-in basis so you can attend whenever it fits into your schedule (no pre-registraion needed!). Each Lindy Hop lesson starts with a few footwork drills to get you warmed up. Here's the Thursday night schedule:
7:00 - 8:15 East Coast Swing Class
8:15 - 9:30 Lindy Hop Class
10:00 - 2:00 Late Night Swing DJ Dance
The admission is $9 general admission, $7 for students and military with valid ID, and it covers both classes (the whole time from 7:00 until 9:30 pm). And when you come to class you can stay for the DJ dance for just $2 more. (If you come to the dance only without taking the class, the admission is $6 general, $4 students/military.)
On the 1st Thursday of every month we teach the basics of each style so students can get an idea of how each dance works. In both classes we emphasize proper technique, styling, and lead-&-follow connection concepts. And students who attend class on the 1st Thursday can stay to dance at Late Night Swing for free!
EAST COAST SWING starts with the basic step in facing position, then adds turns for the Follow, the Lead and both, and moving in and out of closed position.
LINDY HOP starts with 8-count rhythm drills, then you’ll learn the swing-out from closed and open positions, and circling back to closed position.
