Dance Classes

About our classes:

Beginner 1: Students will learn to dance the basic figures of Single-Time Swing (Jitterbug) in a two-hand hold, including the basic step, basic underarm turns, and Triple-Time (East Coast) variations. This class is appropriate for absolute beginners through swing dancers looking to solidify their basic movements.

Beginner 2: Students will learn underarm turn variations, basic wraps, and rotations in a two-hand and close hold. This class is appropriate for students who have completed the Beginner 1 class or who have taken introductory swing classes.

Intermediate: Students will learn basic dips and more advanced wraps and turns. This class is appropriate for students who have competed the Beginner 2 class, or for current swing dancers looking to spice up their repertoire.

Private Lessons: Private instruction is available for students seeking more personal attention as well as for more advanced dancers.
