Whether you’re looking to stay physically active, meet new people or just want to survive that next wedding with your dignity intact, look no further. We’re certain that once you get started you’ll be hooked on the best music and dancing around, because it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t GOTTASWING!

This Beginner 2.0: Back to Basics Lindy Hop class is for anyone that needs more practice with their basics or wants to improve their partner connection. Designed to get you ready for advanced social dancing, this class answers questions such as:
• How can different moves be implemented on the fly so the followers can respond?
• How can I dance more musically within a limited vocabulary?
• What kind of connection techniques can give me and my partner a better dance?
This ambitious curriculum is not suitable for absolute beginners but requires a basic mastery of six- and eight-count patterns. This class is a great way to make the jump from just starting out to becoming a more confident dancer.

You must be registered for the entire session; we are unable to accommodate drop-ins! Tuition is $120 per person for the eight-week session. For a detailed description of what GottaSwing teaches in their beginner series and what you therefore need to be comfortable with for the intermediate level, please watch this video with a demonstration of the material covered in the beginner class. Gottaswing instructors reserve the right to make final determination as to appropriate class level for students.

Please stick around after class for a 30-minute open practice with students from the beginner and intermediate classes welcome!
