Registration FAQ

show all

  • What’s the course language?
  • At what level should I register?
    • If you’ve never danced Lindy Hop before, Lindy Hop Beginner is the right level for you.
    • If you have been dancing for about half a year or longer but you have not attended weekly classes and/or social dancing very regularly, join the Lindy Hop Beginner-Intermediate level. This may also the level that you can take if you have followed one or two courses (10-20 lessons) of Lindy Hop elsewhere.
    • If you feel comfortable on the dance floor, have attended local workshops, and attend social dancing regularly, you may consider Lindy Hop Intermediate.
    • You can join the Solo Jazz course if you have some Lindy Hop experience, for instance if you have previously taken the Lindy Hop Beginner course.


  • Do I need a partner?
    Because the Solo Jazz course is a solo dance class, you can’t register with a dance partner for that course.

    Note: we intend to keep the ratio leaders/followers somewhat balanced. If there are many more leaders registering than followers, we will start a waiting list for individual leaders. Conversely, with many more followers than leaders registering, we will start a waiting list for individual followers.

    Couple registrations are only put on a waiting list in the event that the course is full.
