Lindy Hop Boot Camp

This monthly boot camp is a great way to freshen up your technique and connection while learning some new moves at the same time. Commit to just 2-4 HOURS and learn the same amount of material you'd learn during a whole MONTH of regular group classes!

2:00 PM TANDEM CHARLESTON - Charleston is a dance involving fun kick patterns that is used with both East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop. This class will specifically focus on tandem patterns (where your partner is in front or behind you). ALL LEVELS (but please know your basic East Coast Swing or Lindy Hop otherwise 1:00 PM class is required)

3:00 PM IT’S THE WAY THAT YOU DO IT - Correct TECHNIQUE will be covered along with the basic patterns. This class is a great introduction as well as a review for the seasoned dancer. BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE
