Event Description

Starting in mid-October, Chris & Kellie will be teaching Lindy Hop Swing at Studio 65!

If you don't know about Lindy, do yourself a favor and check it out! In our opinion, it's the most enjoyable swing dance out there, and we have pretty much tried 'em all. The music is fun, the vibe is infectious, and the momentum of the dance is totally addictive!

6-week series
Starts October 15
Thursdays, 6-7:30 pm
$60 per person or $110 per couple
No partner is required to take the class!

This class is beginning level, but it's not a drop-in class, so you will learn more and build your skills at an accelerated pace. Class size will be limited to 20 participants.

In addition to learning the steps, you will learn how to:
-really connect with your dance partners
-find the momentum that really makes dancing fun
-lead with confidence
-follow with style

About Lindy Hop:
Lindy Hop is the ORIGINAL swing dance, evolving out of the Charleston and other big-band-era dances starting as early as the 1920's. Lindy uses 8-count basic footwork similar to that of West Coast swing and leaves tons of room for improvisation and personal flair. What really sets it apart from other forms of swing is its versatility and the general exuberance with which it is performed--check out these video clips!
