This Bootcamp is equivalent to Swing Time's 6-Week Lindy Hop I course, offered here in a 2-week Saturday-afternoon format instead. Take Lindy Hop I Bootcamp and you'll be ready for the Lindy Hop 2 course. This Bootcamp also comes with 3 free repeats! That means you can retake Lindy Hop I for free whenever it's offered, either in 6-week hourly format or 2-week bootcamp format. This is your opportunity to master Lindy Hop fundamentals and qualify yourself for Lindy Hop 2! Lindy Hop I Bootcamp is 8 hours total, 4 hours per Saturday, over two consecutive Saturdays. Each Saturday covers three one-hour classes, with breaks in between classes, and extra practice time at the end.
In this course, you'll learn how to dance the Lindy Hop. After six hours of instruction, you'll know how to lead or follow more than 20 Lindy Hop moves & turns. You'll also learn the fundamental Lindy Hop positions and footwork, plus solid partner-dancing techniques. At the end of this course, you'll be comfortable with Lindy Hop, and will enjoy dancing the Lindy Hop anywhere there's music!
Lindy Hop is a fun, energetic, and versatile form of swing dancing that has surged in worldwide popularity over the last three decades. Today, Lindy Hop is THE dance of choice among modern swing dance crowds across the globe, with dances in every major city and lindy exchanges every weekend of the year! Whether the music is classic or contemporary, Lindy Hop is a great dance to know for just about any occasion. It can be danced to tempos from slow to fast, to just about any kind of music!
Lindy Hop is, to put it simply, more-advanced swing dancing. It offers the most opportunities for advancement in social dancing of any swing dance, and it's also the most impressive swing-dance form to learn for performances and competitions. In fact, Lindy Hop includes all of East-Coast Swing, both single-step and triple-step variations, and all of Charleston, meaning that anything you can dance in East-Coast Swing or Charleston, you can also dance in Lindy Hop. But Lindy Hop adds a whole new world of possibilities to your swing dancing, from Swing-Out variations, to sophisticated styling, to syncopations, to advanced footwork, to jazz steps, to advanced partner interactions. The bottom line is Lindy Hop is a must-learn dance for those who wish to progress in their swing dancing.
