June: Technique

This month of Lindy 2 is a focus on developing your lindy hop technique. Be prepared to become more comfortable with footwork and moving your body. We’ll also work on breaking down swing outs and understanding lead and follow dynamics. Throw in a touch of musicality and how to deal with the unexpected on the dance floor, and you’ll be well on your way towards having fun on the dance floor while understanding how lindy hop works.

July: Charleston

When the music gets fast, lindy hop is not the only option. Why not try Charleston? This month you’ll go through the Charleston basics, all the way up through some hand-to-hand patterns, and some tandem. We’ll also cover some basic solo movement, so get ready to learn how to Suzie Q and Tacky Annie. Previous Charleston experience is not necessary, although you do need to know basic Lindy Hop.
