Track 1 – This level is not for absolute Lindy Hop beginners, but for those who have minimal Lindy Hop experience. You can join this level if you have been regularly attending our beginner course since September (or equivalent level abroad) or you have been irregularly attending beginner/intermediate course and do not have much social dancing experience. In the track you will work on consolidating your basics and adding simple variations.
Track 2 – You have been taking classes and social dancing for about a year and you are probably regularly attending our beginner/intermediate or intermediate courses (or equivalent abroad). You have been introduced to terms like connection, musicality and improvisation. Solid Lindy Hop basics (swing out, lindy circle, Texas Tommy, side-by-side Charleston) are necessary. This level is about solidifying what you know, and improving your lead/follow skills, connection and, movement.
Track 3 – You have a couple of years of Lindy Hop experience, taken lots of classes, attended several workshops, and social dance frequently. You are probably attending our intermediate/advanced course (or equivalent abroad). You have a nice repertoire of moves and styling. You will learn new material to expand and improve your dictionary of moves and technique and will work on your musicality and improvisation skills.
Solo Jazz – this track is not for absolute beginners. To attend this track you should have taken solo jazz classes in the past or have taken the lindy beginner/intermediate and higher level. This is a solo dance class so you don’t need a partner to register. During the course, you will work on classical authentic jazz moves, musicality, improvisation and maybe a short choreo. It can be taken as a single track or you can combine it with Lindy Hop Track 2 or 3.
