WHY IS THE CLASS SCHEDULE THE WAY IT IS?

Leaving aside the Newcomers Special track, we have 5 full weekend tracks, four teaching couples, and four large spaces (the multi-purpose room [MPR] is a small room). This means we cannot have all tracks in classes at the same time, and each track will have an empty slot in their schedule.

We do our best to:

FULL WEEKEND

All non-newcomer track groups are folded into a single pool for registration called Full Weekend. Once registered, you have to fill out our Level Check Questionnaire.

Track group descriptions are available here.

NEWCOMERS SPECIAL

This track is for you if…

You are fairly new to Swing Dancing, or have only taken a handful of classes. This is your first Lindy Hop workshop weekend. You’re looking to learn a lot and have a lot of fun. This track will provide just the right amount of classes.

It is a more affordable track perfect for new dancers. The track will be taught by instructors Adam Brozowski & Joshua Mclean.

PARTNERED SWING DANCING ROLES

Partnered swing dancing is a role-based dance. There is a leader and there is a follower. Both partners contribute equally to the dance, but in different ways. The leader is the one usually initiating movement and thinking about the dance in terms of shapes. The follower interprets the lead and moves accordingly, adding their own contributions to the dance. The dancers send each other cues about their movements and intentions through their connection as well as visually. The dance becomes an unspoken conversation between the dancers.
