Intermediate Lindy Hop A, B, C

When: Sundays 6:30-7:30pm, 4 weeks
Where: Salsa Con Todo (Main Room)
Price: $72
Prerequisites: Beginner Lindy Hop or equivalent

This class will take you beyond the fundamentals to help you explore and develop a deeper partnered connection, musicality, and personal style.

Unlike Beginner Lindy Hop, this class will rotate three topics on a monthly basis. You should take this series three times to ensure you have learned all of the Lindy Hop Intermediate material. You do not have to take them in any particular order. We will rotate through these three topics per month and then repeat: 

  • Intermediate Lindy A: Connection and Rhythm

  • Intermediate Lindy B: Swingouts and Variations

  • Intermediate Lindy C: Charleston

Prerequisites: At least two series of Intermediate Lindy Hop or equivalent

As an advanced dancer, you understand that dancing is more enjoyable when you deepen your knowledge and understanding of the dance. In this ongoing series, we’ll explore the rhythms, connections, patterns, history, and stylings that make Lindy Hop and jazz dance so creatively rich. Our continually rotating topics are designed to level up your dancing each month. Some past topics include:

  • Counterbalance

  • Advanced Charleston

  • Rhythm Variations

  • Vintage Clip Breakdowns
