"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 (Charleston): We'll get you moving on the dance floor and focusing on the dance that started it all. This dance is often interspersed within any social swing dance, or can be danced standalone. Charleston is often the jelly to the Lindy Hop peanut butter. This basic also helps you dance to faster music, without feeling like you're working too hard--but you'll never feel like you're getting this much exercise when you're having so much fun!
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Level 2 Swing (Charleston): We will be continuing on from the connection and aesthetics of the basic, and moving quickly on to build on the technique and connection of other patterns in hand-to-hand and tandem Charleston as well. No partner required. You must have either taken all three Level 1 series classes to register for this class, or have talked with one of the instructors about being placed at this level.
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Level 2/3 Swing (Collegiate Shag): Collegiate Shag is a vintage jazz dance that can be wonderfully whimsical and high energy or extremely elegant and smooth. It is perfect for higher tempo songs. You don't need any prior Shag knowledge to take this series, you just need to be at least at level 2 in your swing dance journey. We don't offer Shag classes very often, so don't miss out on this opportunity! Here's a video of what to look forward to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJAIKyW7r4
Time: 7:40 - 8:40 PM


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
