The Bridge Workshop

Level up your Lindy Hop!

Have you been taking beginner lessons with us for a while, and now you’re ready to take your dancing to the next level? Then The Bridge workshop is your next stop. Every quarter we will be running a 3-hour workshop where we will consolidate all the basics (Charleston, 6-count, 8-count, and jazz) and drill on Lindy Hop* fundamentals to prepare you for the social dance floor (and intermediate classes). Come prepared to dance hard!


* 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.

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)
