Each lindy hop track consists of eight hours of teaching in total, which includes two hours of concept classes, in addition to the lindy hop classes. And don’t forget – there will be tasters classes as well!
There will be a Harmonisation, a lighter kind of audition, that everyone taking a lindy hop class has to do, even the Intermediate level. The purpose of this is to make sure that all groups are about the same sizes and that all participants are at a suitable level. This means that you can be moved to another level than the one you signed up for.
You have been dancing for a while and are actively social dancing. You feel comfortable with swingout, lindy circle, tuck turn, charleston variations and other basic 8 and 6 count material. You have probably heard of terms like Connection and Musicality. In this level you will build up your lead and follow techniques, musicality, learn classic lindy hop moves as well as new material and improve your styling.
You have been dancing for a couple of years and you can confidently dance all the basic patterns mentioned for the Intermediate level and also variations of those patterns. There will be a lot of new material and different tempos to expand and improve your dictionary of moves and technique.
Stuff starts to get really hard in this level. Patterns, figures and basic dance technique will be presented in a more challenging way. Here the teaching pace will be quicker and classes will cover all tempos. A very intense and exciting level if you are ready for it!
