    Ready to become a Lindy Hopper? Whether you're new to swing dancing, or you've taken some drop-in classes in recent months.... if you’re ready to progress from Beginner to Intermediate, our Novice Learning Group is your next stop.

    This is a ±3.5-month progressive course, where a CTS senior teacher will help you string together the essentials of becoming a social lindy hopper (including swing outs and 8-count vocab, tuck-turns and other 6-count basics, charleston fundamentals, solo jazz ABCs, partner technique and communicating rhythm changes, swing music structure & musicality in dance, history & culture of swing…).

    We have NEW Novice groups starting every few months in the City Center, Muizenberg and Observatory.
