Upcoming Classes

This fall, we’ve revamped our lesson structure to make it easier to progress from a beginner to an intermediate dancer.

Swing 1: Beginning 6-count Swing & Charleston

Our beginner drop-in classes start from the basics and cover a new set of moves each time. The aim is to get you comfortably moving and having fun on the dance floor.

This class is offered before every dance (see schedule above).

Lindy 1: Introduction to Lindy Hop

Starting Monday, October 2, we’re offering a 5-week Lindy hop lesson series. The class will cover basic 8-count footwork, promenade, swing-out, Lindy circle, and turns.

Charleston 1: Beyond Basic Charleston

Starting the week of November 6, join us for a 4-week partner Charleston series. The class will cover basic Charleston footwork, stalls, gear turns, and hand-to-hand Charleston.

This class is great for beginners or anyone who wants to go beyond our basic Charleston lessons.
