Swing I

Screen Shot 2015-01-31 at 1.10.13 AMSwing I is a progressive, semester-long series of classes. We begin each semester with the basics of Lindy Hop. From there, we build upon those first classes to learn more complex shapes, develop technique and individual style, integrate 6- and 8-count shapes, and more! Swing I starts anew every semester, so a fresh series begins in September, January, and May.


In September, this first month is FREE but this series starts late – September 18th & 25th only.

Join instructors Sarah Campbell Jones & Val Kutchko, and learn to Lindy Hop! No partner necessary. Please wear shoes with a smoother, no-grip sole (Keds or Converse will work fine!).

If you take this series and decide to continue attending classes and SAA events, you might consider paying SAA Membership Dues. SAA members save $$$ on series, workshops, special events, and get into regular Wednesday night dances for free! Check out our website for more details: https://swingannarbor.com/membership/

      **If you’re not paying online, please bring EXACT CHANGE or CHECK to the class, or pay at the Front Desk during our Wednesday social dances!

  • No partner needed! No experience needed (if joining at the start of semester. If you’re hoping to join midway through the semester, keep reading!).



During the middle of the semester:
We encourage you to attend a few beginner drop in classes (8-9pm) to learn some basics before joining the Intro to Lindy Hop series. With the basics under your belt, it will be much easier for you to join Swing I midway through the semester.

We encourage dancers to take AT LEAST one semester’s worth of Swing I before moving on to Swing II.
