YWCA Level II Lindy Hop Classes Mar-Apr

Jean and Bromley will be teaching a 6 week Level I Lindy Hop series at the YWCA in Berkeley, CA every Monday night starting Sept 22nd. They will be introducing you to the wonderful world of Lindy Hop. Learn the basic steps and fun variations that will have you dancing the night away, whether you are at a party, a wedding or just a night out on the town. No partner necessary and drop-ins are welcome every week.

Topic: Beginner Charleston (Level II): In this class we will be building a base of Charleston moves which should be in every Lindy Hoppers repertoire. Charleston and Lindy Hop are both under the swing dance umbrella and can be danced together. Here is a video of us performing an advanced Charleston routine: http://youtu.be/oqMxNiljNS8?list=PLH5Su6PB2cyjxxKYNH3lvl53rHNNOP-t1. Get ready to have a lot of fun as you pick up new Charleston patterns.
