THE LEVELS​

LINDY HOP

BOOGIE DROP

FISHTAIL

This is not a complete beginners level. You are familiar with some basic moves (6 & 8 count, basic charleston, tuck turns, pass by, promenade) and eager to start widening your dance vocabulary, dive deeper in the dance and feel more comfortable with moving your body and dancing with different partners.
You social dance regularly, feel comfortable with basic moves like swing out, Texas – tommy, turns, charleston steps, and enjoy dancing in different tempos and playing with rhythms. You are exploring themes like connection, communication, musicality and creativity. You are interested in adding new moves to your repertoire, but also work on your fundamental technique and style.

APPLE JACK

You never miss a chance to dance. You enjoy improvisation and have experience both in solo and partnered dance. Slow and fast tempos, and all the steps you know, fuel your creativity and are used as tools so that you can come up with new steps and your own variations. You are after exploring connections with the music, your partner and own body. While you welcome the challenge of learning new tricky steps you also understand the importance of communication, connection, musicality and how exploring those topics can help improve your dancing.  

SOLO JAZZ

LOCK TURN

SLIDE

You know some basic jazz steps, and rhythms. You might have taken some jazz classes in the past or you are lindy hopper that would like to dive into the solo jazz world. Your goal is to learn some new jazz steps and feel more comfortable dancing solo jazz.
You are dancing solo for a while and you are comfortable improvising and creating your own rhythms and variations. You have attended in the past solo jazz classes and workshops and are looking to expand your dance vocabulary, get inspired, and improve your movement, musicality and solo jazz skills.
