Beginner Lindy Hop 1 Series (9 weeks)

For brand new beginners! No partner or experience required!

This 9-week lesson series covers key fundamentals and basics of the Lindy Hop, a type of vernacular jazz/swing dance from the 1920-30s swing era. After taking this series, you will know how to social dance, be more confident on the dance floor, keep rhythm with the music, and have incredibly fun dances. 

About the lessons

- Each lesson is cumulative and builds on the learning from previous lessons

- We learn partner connection, basic rhythm, and moves

- We rotate through different partners for optimal learning and building connections

Beginner 2 Lesson Series (9 weeks)

This is a diverse class welcoming different levels of experience. 

This class should be taken if you fit any one of these criteria:

- Completed the beginner 1 series

- or completed TRUSU Swing Dance Club's beginner lesson series

- or have previous dance experience and comfortable with 8-count and 6-count moves

- or completed the beginner 2 series and would like to take it again (each beginner 2 series is different)


Description of classes

We go beyond the basic fundamental moves/rhythm and delve deeper into technique and into more challenging combinations and moves. We also may introduce the concept of musicality, incorporate solo jazz steps and explore the charleston. Each series is unique because we cater to the needs of each class and there are so many potential topics to cover.
