Monthly Lesson Series:
Swing 2A: Advanced Lindy Hop Basics with Noëlle Gray
Note: We ask that any students registering for Swing 2A be confident in leading or following the basic steps and turns of 6-count swing, as well as a swing out and lindy circle. Taking Swing 1A and 1B will teach you all of these skills and prepare you for this class!
Growing as a swing dancer is an exciting challenge, and building your vocabulary an important key to progressing as a social dancer. Hartford Underground’s instructors will help expand your dance lexicon while focusing on the fundamentals of frame, connection, and musicality – the things that make a dance look and feel great, giving space for both people to have a creative voice!
This month Noëlle, with an ensemble of co-teachers, will continue to guide our lessons. Co-teaching benefits students by including additional instructors in partner rotation. With multiple instructors in the mix, the goal is to support and inspire our marvelous dance students by providing targeted one-on-one feedback in class. There’s never been a better time to work on your Lindy Hop fundamentals while increasing your dance vocabulary!
We look forward to seeing you in class!
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. We want people to sign up in blocks, because practice only helps if it’s regular, and we want to reward folks who place value in working on their dancing regularly.
Cost: $25 Lesson Card (5-lessons+1* FREE lesson) or $5 per lesson
* only with the Practice Card
Note: practice cost is in addition to the $5 dance admission per evening.
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.
