Swing 1: It all starts here!

This level consists of two classes: Swing 1A and 1B. You’ll learn the basic movements and tools you’ll need to start navigating the social dance floor. If you’re looking to try the other dance role, we recommend starting at this level. This level is also great for experienced dancers looking to revisit their basics! We recommend taking both of these classes at least once to get you ready for Level 2!

Swing 1A: 6-Count Swing and Charleston Basics

This 4 week progressive series will introduce the basics of 6-count swing (East Coast Swing) and the Charleston. You’ll be turning, side passing, and kicking at a comfortable social dancing tempo. You’ll need this class and Swing 1B to continue to the Swing 2 classes. No experience or partner is required.

Swing 1B: 8-Count Swing Basics

This 4 week progressive series will introduce the basics of 8-count swing (Lindy Hop). You’ll learn the signature moves including the swing out, the lindy circle, and the send out. We’ll get you started moving like a Lindy Hopper at a comfortable social dancing tempo. You’ll need this class and Swing 1A to continue to the Swing 2 classes. You can take 1A and 1B in whatever sequence is most convenient, but we recommend taking Swing 1A first. No experience or partner is required.
