Vintage Swing 1 (intro) 

Tuesdays 7:30-8:30p 

You are about to take your first step toward social Swing dancing! Woo Hoo! In this class you'll learn the 6-count rhythm pattern that is universally known as the basic Swing step (fundamental East Coast Swing), plus enough moves to get you out on the dance floor immediately! VS1 will also introduce you to lead-follow concepts that are essential to partner dancing of all types, making this the perfect class for students interested in general partner dancing skills, not just East Coast Swing.

Vintage Swing 2 (beg) 

Tuesdays 8:30-9:30p

Move past the basics into the triple-step! In this level you'll become well-acquainted with the triple-step, a variation on the 6-count swing pattern. This will open the door to a new type of movement, giving you the ability to travel more smoothly across the dance floor. You'll see ways to increase your confidence as a lead/follow, new moves and combinations of moves based on the fundamentals covered in VS1, and perhaps a little bit of flash!

Vintage Swing 3 (int) 

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30p 

Discover new possibilities in direction and connection!
In this class you will discover how you can dance 'out of the box,' making your moves more dynamic, especially when you begin to dance in 8-count patterns known as Lindy Hop and partnered Charleston! You'll be shown seamless transitions into these exciting dances, greatly diversifying your swing repertoire. Because of the vast variety of material that can be learned at this level, VS 3 is best repeated several times as we alternate between Lindy hop and Charleston every other month. Two popular swing styles, style and connection pointers, and fun variations mean you won't want to skip a month!
September will be a Lindy Hop focus

Vintage Swing 4 (adv)

 Wednesdays 7:30-8:30p

Take your Lindy to the next level in skill and aesthetics! Lindy can be a truly blood pumping experience, as well as being subtle and finite. Learn how to make your Lindy more versatile and dynamic by learning how to incorporate the little nuances and grandios moves that make Lindy so much fun, and how to sprinkle bits of other popular Swing dances, like Balboa and Charleston, into your Lindy. Students at this level will work with musicality, stylistic embellishments, and breaking the rules to create new dynamic partner work!
