Beginner Lindy Hop

Learn to dance in a fun and supportive atmosphere, with two enthusiastic and experienced teachers!

Swing dancing is a joyful and playful dance, enjoyed by generations of dancers since its inception as Lindy Hop, created by African-Americans in Harlem in the big band era.

This series is suitable for brand new dancers, those with some experience, or anyone wanting to brush up on their fundamentals. We will take you through basic footwork patterns and rhythms, and introduce the lead-follow relationship of swing dancing. The goal by the end of this series is for you to be comfortable and confident on the social dance floor with 6 and 8 count patterns.

No dance experience is required, and you do not need to sign up with a partner.

$82 fee includes 4 classes plus the option to stay after class for some extra social dance practice, and admission to one Jazz Cats Social event so you can practice your new moves on the dance floor to a live band.

Instructors: Jason Starr & Justine Robinson
