The most comprehensive Lindy Hop class in Orlando & Central Florida!

Lindy Hop (also known as Jitterbug) is the original form of swing dancing, popularized in the 30s and 40s. This six-week series will cover all the essential moves and variations of Lindy Hop. The class will feature both the 6 and 8 count basics including the whip/swing out. There will be a strong concentration on technique and connection to give you a solid foundation in the dance. Good technique will provide the groundwork to feel comfortable on the dance floor and to continue to advance your dancing in the future. Each class will build upon information from the previous class to continuously further your knowledge week by week. Classes will be an hour long followed by a half hour of practice, questions, and individual help. Previous dance experience is helpful, but not required. No partner needed; individuals and couples welcome! Class highlights:

  • Step by step, week by week instruction to make learning easy
  • One hour of instruction per class plus a half hour of help/question time
  • Learn solid lead/follow principals
  • Progress from the 6-count to 8-count basic
  • Learn moves that add style and strengthen the basics
  • Concentration on dance dynamics
  • Learn from experienced instructors teaching as a finely-tuned, cohesive team
  • Class goal is to get you comfortable on the dance floor with Lindy Hop!

Quotes and Comments

“Rob & Dawn at Flyin' Footwork are fab-freakin-tastic!! I've taken both public workshops and private lessons from them with a partner who had never danced before in his life. He now loves dancing swing and lindy hop as a direct result of their comfortable and professional teaching style. They really make you feel at ease with getting out on the dance floor, and work with you to bring out the strengths of your own individual dance style. I'm a seasoned dancer, but I benefit from even basic lessons with Rob & Dawn because they help me to fine tune my technique and clean up old habits. If you are looking to get into social dancing for the first time, or just wanting to brush up on moves, Flyin' Footwork is the place to go!!!”
