Lindy Hop Track:

Our Lindy Hop Cirriculum is based on 8 progressive block courses. This means, the content of the classes are built on top of each other, and participants are expected to attend most of the classes. These 8 courses are generally offered as weekly 1-hour classes or intensive weekend workshops. You can check our regular courses page to see our upcoming courses.
