Typical Level-Descriptions

Do you know someone who’s eager to learn Lindy Hop, but just can’t commit to going to weekly classes? Plenty Hot Lindy Hop does not offer a pure beginners track. Please attend fundamental classes at you local Lindy Hop school before signing up for our Beg./Int. workshops. Also feel free to sign up for the parties + taster lessons.

This level is not for the absolute Lindy Hop beginner, but for those who have only minimal Lindy Hop experience. You have taken at least 2-6 months* of Lindy Hop and you know the basics: lindy swing out, lindy circle, and side-by-side Charleston. We hope you have been out dancing and enjoying what you know. If you want to reach the next level this is the place to be. These classes will help you to refine your ability and expand your basic variations. If you have no Lindy Hop experience, please take our beginner’s workshop.

You have been taking classes consistently and social dancing for about a year*. You have been introduced to terms like connection, musicality and improvisation. Solid Lindy hop basics (lindy swing out, lindy circle, Texas Tommy, side-by-side Charleston, and tandem Charleston) are necessary. This level is about solidifying as a Lindy Hop dancer and improving your lead/follow skills, connection, improvisation, movement and musicality.

You have a nice repertoire of moves with possibly a few tricks here and there. You have good connection and can adapt to different techniques. In these classes you will learn a lot of new material to expand and improve your dictionary of moves and technique.

Stuff starts to get really hard around this. You’ve probably been dancing over five years*. You understand that to become an advanced dancer you need to go back to the basics. It is not about memorizing patterns, but really understanding challenging techniques and how to move your body. You are a confident dancer, you can create new moves and styling right on the floor. You can handle fast and slow tempos, tricky moves, and can make it all work to the music. These classes will be fast paced and challenging.
