Thursday Night Class Schedule
(All monthly class series begin the first Thursday night of the month.)
|March 5, 12, 19 and 26, 6:30pm||Intermediate/Advanced Lindy Hop
"Styling, Fluidity, and the Lindy Hop Aesthetic"
This month's classes are all about getting experienced Lindy Hoppers (already comfy with 6 count, 8 count, and Charleston) moving more authentically and with classic style. We will do drills and exercises as well as moves to put it in context.
TWO MONTH PLAN: in April, the plan is to break out and focus more on rhythm, play, creativity, and musicality, so take both months back-to-back for best possible results!

|March 5, 12, 19 and 26, 7:30pm||Beginning Swing and Lindy Hop

No previous dance experience or partner required!
