March 2018 Lesson Series:
Swing 3: Calling All Swing Nerds!
IMPORTANT: Swing 1 and 2 (or equivalent knowledge) are REQUIRED before taking this class. For those of you not familiar with our lesson structures, this means being familiar and comfortable with six-count steps AND eight-count Lindy Hop, including swing outs, side passes, and tuck turns. If you are not sure whether you meet these criteria, please email us at HartfordUnderground@gmail.com with any questions.
This five week(!) series will take all those sweet moves you’ve learned in Swing 1 and Swing 2 and make them easier, smoother, better, and faster! We’ll work on maintaining a good connection with your partner, exploring musicality, and getting comfortable with improvisation. Most importantly, we’ll focus on transitioning between six-count and eight-count steps with natural ease, so that you can move smoothly on the dance floor from one moment to the next!
A Quick Break Down of our Evenings:
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM: Monthly Lesson Series
8:00 PM – 8:30 PM: Beginner Lesson in the Ballroom (Free!); Intermediate Guided Practice downstairs, below the bar ($5 extra)

Intermediate/Advanced Guided Practice
Time: Thursdays 8:00 PM – 8:30 PM (Same time as Intro Lesson)
Location: Basement of Polish National Home
For those of you who have consistently worked on your beginner fundamentals of Lindy Hop, we offer a guided practice session every Thursday from 8:00 PM – 8:30 PM (same time as our beginner lesson) in the basement of the Polish National Home.
These lessons are intended to be for intermediate dancers looking for additional material and practice. We guarantee that the material will be challenging such that it will take additional social dance practice to master.
Just like your favorite coffee shop, we’ve introduced a Guided Practice rewards card to reward our dancers who come most often, because practice only helps when it is frequent and regular! Get your free Guided Practice Rewards Card with your first purchase of a Guided Practice, get your card stamped or punched by our instructors at each session, and after five lessons your sixth session AND the social dancing of the evening will be 100% free! Enjoy the rewards of a commitment to your dancing!
Intermediate Guided Lessons will cost $10 each and will include social dancing for the evening. Cost for students who have already made a monthly social dance or lesson registration will be reduced to $5. Every 6th lesson and social dance will be free with your Guided Lesson Card.
Purchase: Lesson Cards and tickets are sold at the front desk, please have your card and ticket ready to present to your instructor before the guided practice session.
Come on out for great evenings of dancing. If you’re new to swing dancing we encourage you to take our 30 minute introductory lesson at 8:00 PM. After that, join us for an evening of great music and fun in a low-pressure friendly atmosphere.
