Workshop Classes

This is the class schedule for our workshop event! There will be dance ability expectations for the classes with track 2 where we will be focusing on connection and adding to your repertoire of moves.

Track 1: All Skate

Open to all skill levels

Track 2: Experienced Dancers

This is for those who can readily social dance Lindy Hop and basic side-by-side Charleston without thinking about their footwork. Lindy Hop basics expectations are being able to perform a swing out from open position, swing out from closed position, an inside turn, an outside turn, and the Lindy Circle. Our instructors will challenge even the highest level dancers who attend, as they will give advanced concepts and moves to those who are ready for added challenge. Be honest with yourself; we don’t want to hurt other people’s practice. If you are really struggling the instructors may discreetly ask you to watch that session or go to the track 1 class.
