Swing 3: Intro to Lindy Hop

Hop into the next swing class by experiencing the premier and original swing dance! It started at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem in 1927, was refined in the early 1930s, and is now danced throughout the world. One of the many great things about Savoy Lindy Hop is that the footwork of the dance patterns coincides exactly with the music, so you are always on phrase. You will see what this means when you perform the steps. You will learn the basic (The Swing Out), the Lindy Circle, the Eight-Around, Charleston patterns and more. You will also see how you can use some of the moves from Swing 2 in the Lindy Hop, too. This is THE classic dance created with a sence of humor that will let you move in the groove and give your feet the all reet! Fee $49
