Swing and Lindy Lessons
All levels of experience welcome in this class! Concurrent Beginner and Intermediate classes, with two instructors. Beginner students will be introduced to the 6-count Jitterbug, which has remained the most popular dance in America since the 1940s when bands like Glenn Miller and Count Basie were on the scene. Learn to do all that stuff you see in every 50's movies when Elvis and Chuck Berry have got the crowd rockin' & rollin'. Learn all about outside turns, inside turns, men's/ladies' turns, hammerlocks and sweethearts, and more. As you progress, you will move into the Intermediate group. Intermediate dancers will take all their moves from the Beginner level, and add in more complicated patterns, and learn the original Lindy, with 8-count patterns. You'll gain confidence and technique to take to dances, parties, and weddings. $90 if you register for 6 classes; $18 to drop in any night.

What we're about

Are you looking for fun, friends and exercise in the Hudson Valley? We created this group to find people who want to explore dances and classes in swing, salsa, ballroom, we love it all! We are Joe and Julie, avid social dancers and teachers. We both lead and follow so if you join up with us for an event, you are assured of at least two dance partners in any new place. Having a group makes it more fun for everyone! We also host a few dances and classes every month that you'll be invited to. We host a few dance weekends away, including trips to dance in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., so let us know of your interest.

If you would like to be on our email list, please send a request to Joe@ballroomjoe.com and you'll receive a weekly email about all of our dance events.

Also keep in mind that since we also post on Facebook and send out emails, the RSVPs for our events in any one group are always lower than the actual turnout! Many people come who do not RSVP anywhere, so come out to an event and dance the night away!
