Lindy Hop and Shim Sham Classes
Starting in June: We’ll be offering our most popular class, the six week Lindy Hop series class!Â Taught by Rob & Dawn, this class will start from scratch and teach you both the six-count and eight-count basics of Lindy Hop. In addition, you’ll learn moves and variations that reinforce those basics. The goal of the class is to get you comfortable and confident on the dance floor with Lindy. It’s a great way to get started!
Also starting in June is an all new three week class on the Shim Sham! The Shim Sham is a jazz era dance routine originally done by Vaudeville performers in the early 1900’s. While there are many variations of the Shim Sham around today, the version popular amongst swing dancers and Lindy Hoppers is a solo group dance (dare we say “line”?) that incorporates various jazz steps. Taught by Anna and Shelley, this class will teach you the whole dance from time steps, to cross-overs and Tacky Annies. You’ll get a chance to practice it as a group step-by-step until you have it down pat.
Coming soon! A new three week Charleston 2 class! Ready to learn the Charleston swingout?
