The names that are given to the non-beginner classes are just examples. Every group will get an opportunity to suggest a name of an artist they would like to use and vote for the one to be used, so that they chose the artist they like to be identified by.
This semester, we are offering two beginner classes of Lindy, and one of Balboa. Additionally, there will be one Authentic Jazz class, and three more Lindy Hop classes where you can find inspiration.
No matter how experienced a dancer is, it is always worth it to go back to the basics and even do a beginner class again, or look for something new in the Authentic Jazz or Balboa classes. All of these dances belong to swing dance world.
For the three non-beginner Lindy hop classes, you will be asked to select the two dates and times you would like to take based on your time preferences. You will also be asked to specify the names of up to 3 co-dancers with whom you’d like to dance (either leaders or followers based on your role, we just want to know who you feel most comfortable dancing around). We will then take care of setting up the dancing groups accordingly!
As per usual, we accept registrations as a couple (although both partners will need to complete the registration separately), by indicating during the registration process who your dance partner will be for each course.
We’ve carefully prepared some frequently asked questions and their answer, please see refer to them to see if they answer your initial questions!
This semester we will again be lucky enough to have an invitational professional teacher from the United States teaching all classes. Please refer to our teacher information page for all of the details!
Please subscribe to our google calendar to upload the dates below into your own agenda. We promise that you will be happy you did!

non-marking: the soles of your shoes do not leave marks when dragged over a wooden floor.
indoor: the shoes are only worn indoors and never outdoors.
