What you'll learn in this swing class:

This class focuses on Tandem (or shadow) Charleston. It’s the “kicky-thing” that everyone is so excited to learn and dance. This class may be taken concurrently with Lindy II. Lindy III A, B, and C may be taken in any order.

This class will blend 6-count, 8-count and all kinds of Charleston patterns together. Building on the outrageously helpful technique of all the Lindy IIs, this is the class will add even more spice to your rhythmic romps on the dance floor.

Prerequisite: Lindy II A, B, C, & D or instructor approval.

What should I wear:
Be comfy! There is no dress code, however, it always feels better to dress for the occasion. We recommend the following be it modern or vintage:

Gentlemen: 
We suggest wearing loose pants of a breathable material or a comfortable pair of jeans. Nice T-shirt, bowling shirts or collared shirts are all welcome. Avoid sleeveless shirts or shorts.

Ladies: 
Skirts are always fun (just remember to wear spankies or bloomers underneath) in addition to jeans, leggings or whatever suits your fancy for the evening. We recommend wearing shirts with at least short sleeves (rather than tank tops).

Shoes: 
You do not need special dance shoes, but you do not want to stick to the floor. Do wear leather, suede or smooth soled shoes. Even well worn gym shoes will work. Avoid shoes with heavy treads as they will impede your turning ability. In the warmer month, avoid flip flops, sandals, or any shoes that are not secured to your feet via straps or laces. In general, flips and sandals are unsafe for dancing.

Here’s a dancers trick: Take your most comfortable pair of shoes and have suede or leather put on the bottom. It’s called chroming. Any cobbler will be able to help you out.

If it’s raining or snowing, do remember to put a clean, dry pair of shoes in your bag for dancing. The floors and your partners will thank you.

Location Notes: Please arrive 5-minutes early for your first class, so we may welcome you to the studio and check you into class.
