Do you have equivalent experience of at least one semester’s worth of Swing I? Have you mastered the basic rhythms of Lindy Hop? Can you do tuck-turns, pass-bys, lindy circles, and swing outs in your sleep? Are you ready add complexity and variations to your basics, and begin developing your personal dance style? You’re ready for Swing II! Message us or ask the instructors if you’re unsure 🙂



This semester, Swing I is being replaced by an Open Level Track!

Join Val Kutchko and Connor Cole for our open level Lindy Hop series!

What’s an open level series? It’s really similar to Swing I and Swing II (it’s progressive), except it’s a COMBINED class! Material will be accessible and useful for dancers across a wide spectrum of experience. Val & Connor will provide optional concepts and add-ons that you can try – if you want – so that you can pick and choose the level of challenge that best fits your needs.

The open level series is open to anyone who has attended 4-5 beginner drop in classes and/or feels very comfortable with basic lindy hop shapes (e.g., swing outs, circles, passbys, tuck turns).
