"I've never seen a Lindy Hopper who wasn't smiling.  It's a happy dance.  It makes you feel good."

Salt Lake Swing Dance Classes!

Level 1 Swing (8-count) starts from the very beginning of your Lindy Hop journey, focusing on partner connection and 8-count patterns, leading up to the swing out! This is your lindy hopper bread and butter. Beginner level classes will alternate every month, and are perfect for those starting out, or those wishing to brush up on their basics. Both series are required before moving on to Level 2.
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Level 2 Swing (The Swingout) The swingout is the Lindy Hop basic, and yet one of the most complicated moves to master. We could spend a year (or more) working on this, but we're going to condense it down to the most important parts for this month. We'll work on technique of the swingout, stylizations, and moves based on the swingout. No partner required. You must have either taken both Level 1 series classes to register for this class, or have experience dancing Lindy Hop and have some familiarity with the swing out already.
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Level 3 Swing (Charleston!) You already know the basics of Charleston (i.e. side by side and tandem), and now you want to take it a kick-step further! This series will expand your Charleston vocabulary, and get you comfortable to dancing to faster music with greater ease. You must have either taken all Level 2 Series to register for this class, or have talked with one of the instructors about being placed at this level.
Time: 7:40 - 8:40 PM

PLEASE NOTE: Classes will be for four Wednesdays in November, skipping the week of Thanksgiving (NO CLASS ON THE 22ND).
Cost: $45 for the whole series (no drop-ins allowed without prior approval from the instructors)

Location: Ballroom Utah
