November: Intro to 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.

November: Open Track Lesson – Balboa

This month we have a special lessons series open to all levels. The Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the 1920s and enjoyed huge popularity during the 1930s and 1940s. The term Balboa originally referred to a dance characterized by its close embrace and full body connection. This is another dance that is great to pull out when the tempos get fast.
