"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): We'll start from the very beginning, focusing on partner connection and 8-count patterns that are essential for any Lindy Hopper. Lets get you out on the dance floor!
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.
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Level 3 Swing (Slow Lindy):  Swingin' out slow feels kinda weird to you?  Those triple steps not quite filling up enough time?  In this series we'll be working on your closed position, and how to achieve that fun gooey-stretchy feeling.  Since dancing fast can often help you cover up your mistakes, we’ll focus on slow dancing technique that will incidentally also tune up your faster footwork.

Cost: $45 for each series (no drop-ins allowed without prior approval from the instructors)

Location: Ballroom Utah, 3030 S Main St, Salt Lake City, Utah
