The Lindy Footwork Series
This series will help you practice Swingouts, the real basic in Lindy Hop, with lots of attention to how it all works and how to make it really swing. What's Lindy without some flashy footwork? Learn a few simple variations to the rock-step and triple-step to keep the dance exciting.
Not only will this series give you a great foundation in learning the Swingout, but it will teach you some cool 6 & 8-count variations to get you out there dancing! The highlight for this series is incorporating breakaways and jazz steps that will add excitement and fun to your Lindy Hop.
The Lindy Charleston Series
This series mixes the basics with Charleston, the "grand-daddy" dance of Lindy Hop. From 6-counts to Swingouts, we'll cover all the basics you need to know. You'll learn how to keep your cool when the music starts to really swing and incorporate Charleston variations into your Lindy Hop without missing a beat.
