Join us for an introduction to 8-Count Lindy Hop! In the world of "swing dance", there are a few essential dances to know: Charleston, 6-Count Lindy Hop, and 8-Count Lindy Hop, which is considered the soul of the dance. We'll teach you the basic 8-Count Lindy Hop footwork and some simple, fun moves that will get you out on the dance floor. We’ll teach you how to connect with any partner, and build your confidence dancing to different styles and tempos of music. We'll break things down slowly and clearly, give you plenty of practice time, and rotate partners throughout the class so you'll have a chance to dance with everyone. For those of you brand new to swing dancing, this is a great class to get you started.
