Intermediate Lindy Hop (Observatory)

Level up with our intermediate classes! We will work on improving our technique, learning fancier moves, and integrating different elements of lindy hop* basics: 6-count foundations, swing outs and variations, charleston, solo jazz improvisation and more…

* The lindy hop is a partnered dance that originated in the African American communities in Harlem in the 1930s, and spread all over the world during the height of the Swing Era. It’s a dynamic, connected, stretchy, super-fun, expressive dance that plays with the swinging big band music of the era. It’s made a big comeback in recent decades thanks to its joyful energy.

R130 pp/class (CTS Members get unlimited weeknight classes). No need to bring a partner. Anyone can lead or follow, roles not gendered.

What to bring:

– Comfy shoes that you can dance in (sneakers and formal shoes are great, low vintage style heels are fine too)
– A water bottle
– A shirt change in case you get sweaty

Please read our dance etiquette guidelines 🙂
