Never done Swing dancing before?  This is where you start. Each weekly class is designed to be someone’s first while at the same time offering new moves and material.  No experience or partner necessary and you can start whenever you like just turn up!  The Level 1 syllabus covers 12 weeks of material. Once you’ve done your 12 weeks in Level 1 you can repeat it or you can move up to Level 2. Details click here

You’ve been in Level 1 for 3 months or so and now you’re looking to try something a little harder. Here you learn new moves, new rhythms and a whole lot of new variations you can add to the moves you already know. Level 1 was your introduction but here’s where you really see how big the Swing world can get. Details click here.

Here we explore the moves and rhythms of the Lindy Hop further with a greater emphasis on lead and follow techniques, musical appreciation and of course FUN!  The moves will become a little trickier and the speeds will be faster.

Before taking part, students must have attended Level 2 regularly for 6 months or more.  They must display a good understanding of rhythm and pulse, and must be comfortable combining six and 8 count patterns like partner Charleston, Jigs and the Swing Out and must be comfortable with: Texas Tommy, Back Charleston and Hand to Hand Charleston. Details click here

Here an example of what a level 3 would be moving to and what is possible once you get your basics in and have danced for a while. (Some inspiration with Rob & Diane) 

 Specialty Classes 
Two Step, Balboa Swing, Collegiate Shag and Charleston
Specialty Classes

The Country Two Step is one of the dance styles in the group known as the country western dances. The most popular country western dance is probably the two step.  Additionally, in the last decade swing has risen in popularity in country dance clubs and halls with Country Waltz, Polka and Two Step

 

Swing Shift - Swing Performance Group is a Performance Group class open to all. (We work it Day and Night!). As a group you get to learn a routine. You get to do something together - Practice a fun routine - Learn new steps and repeat them together as a team so you will learn it better and faster as we build our repertoire - Get a chance to perform it for those that would like to (this Performance Group is for all - Be comfortable with your 6 Count Basics) No extra fees - Teachers: Rob & Diane

Balboa Swing is the swing dance that developed in Southern California in the mid 1930’s and is a smooth version of the shag. It has a smooth feel and is danced close to your partner (Pure
Balboa) and has some break away steps after swing steps were added to the dance in the late 1930’s (Balboa Swing). Great for medium to faster songs and easy to mix into your social dancing. Stay tuned for special classes and workshops.

Triple Shag also known as Collegiate Shag is another Swing dance that developed in the early 1930’s and uses lots of kick steps and is danced close and also breaks away from you partner. It has regained huge popularity around the globe. Just right for that great medium or fast song that is playing next! 

Charleston of course is the high energy, up tempo dance that came out of the mid 1920's at the hight of the the Jazz Age during the Flapper Era. Of course movies like "The Great Gatsby" have brought the dance back into the limelight! There are Charleston Dance-Offs around the world and here we do a Charleston Circle that is fun for all. Also watch for the Charleston Routine our beginning though advanced students perform around town. A great way to bring your party alive and get everybody involved!
