4 levels for LINDY HOP lessons:

Beginners – You have been dancing Lindy Hop for only a few months, but you are already hooked and would like to learn new combinations and figures to have even more fun on the dance floor.

Intermediate – You have been dancing Lindy Hop regularly for more than 1 year, taking lessons and dancing at Social Dance nights. You feel confident on the main 6- and 8-step figures, and would like to add more and more interesting variations and figures to your style.

Advanced – You’ve been dancing Lindy Hop regularly for more than 2 years, taking lessons and dancing on Social Dance nights, and you can’t get enough! Technique, variations and musicality are your bread and butter, and mastering any song and speed with ease and style is your goal on the dance floor.

Master Class Invitational – by invitation only from the organizer

2 levels for “SOLO JAZZ” classes:

Open – You have recently started dancing Solo Jazz and know the basic Charleston and “Alphabetical Jazz Steps,” but would like to add style and variations to show off on the dance floor.
