Intermediate Swing: 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 progressive series will go beyond the fundamentals of 8 and 6 count swing and introduce musicality, and styling accents. You will learn how to transition between the basic swing patterns while varying rhythm, momentum, and texture at an intermediate level. Students should have a solid understanding of the 6-count basics, and have taken both Swing 1 & Swing 2 courses. There are so many topics to cover, and the content in this class will change regularly. We encourage you to take it over and over to build your skills! No partner is required.
Wednesdays, September 4-25
