LEVEL 1

No experience or partner required. The idea of this course is to provide solid fundamentals and from your very first class, go to a social to dance, and also to create a solid foundation upon which to continue learning.

Get started in the wonderful world of swing dancing! This course will teach you the basics you need so you can dance right away on the social dance floor: how to dance with a partner and simple patterns to music, and learning about the culture and jazz under it all. No partner required to register or attend, although if you register with a partner it will help us balance the classes better. Meet new people, get moving, improve your co-ordination, and have a lot of fun!

You can start with any Level 1 topic and take them in any order. Want to review your basics? Retake the same Level 1 topic at a discount (eg. If you have taken Lindy Hop 1, you can retake Lindy Hop 1 at a discount).

SPECIAL CLASSES

Tap dance was the first African American art form to achieve mainstream popularity and it heavily influenced future art forms and music. This is why we see tap steps and movements in solo jazz repertoire today.  In this brand new cycle we’ll learn a choreographed routine with both tap and solo jazz steps. Classes will be followed by our resumed socials.
This cycle is opened for tap beginners with solo dancing experience. No tap shoes (feel free to bring your own if you have it) or partners required.
