Swing Dance Crash Course (6:30-8:00pm) – Introduction to 6-Count Swing
This is your chance to learn the fundamentals of swing dancing! Our goal in this class is to teach you the basic figures and get you dancing as soon as possible. After this workshop, you will be ready to go out and dance the night away, and even end with a dip! We’ll also provide you with resources to continue learning and go out dancing in New York City. This workshop is perfect for the ultra-beginner, two-left-footer, as well as seasoned veterans who are interested in solidifying their foundation in 6-count swing.
Swingout Foundations (8:00-9:30pm)- Introduction to 8-Count Swing
This workshop is perfect for new dancers who have a background in 6-count swing, or not! You can be an ultra beginner or have some moves under your belt…. This workshop will teach the classic and characteristic move of the Lindy Hop, the swingout, from scratch. We’ll give you the tools you need to conquer a swingout from closed position, the swingout (also called a Lindy Turn), and a Lindy Circle. We’ll also throw in some variations in between. This workshop is also great for any seasoned dancer wanting to refresh their foundation, as well as the ambitious dancer who is willing to learn the other role of lead or follow!
