Join us every Monday night for a beginners’ level swing dance class that focuses on Lindy Hop and Charleston.
This lively American dance began in Harlem in the 1920’s and has received renewed interest in recent years, especially here in Beijing and in my hometown, Los Angeles, California.
In this class the focus is on basics of both styles with a moderate repertoire of moves for both dances. Partner is optional as we rotate leaders frequently. In the first cycle we teach a few basic moves to get the student dancing right away.
Even before stepping foot in a Lindy Hop Swing dance class you can begin by reciting this simple formula to excellent footwork. “Rock step, triple step, step step, triple step.”
Hope to see you there, Frank Monday
