The Level 1 Lindy Hop video above is an introduction to swing dance using Single Time Lindy Hop. We made this simple video to prepare you for our Beginner Swing Course where we teach a mix of Single and Triple Time Lindy Hop basics. The Level 2 Video below is a sample of some of the Triple Time Lindy Hop basics we teach in the Beginner Course. The Beginner & Intermediate Swing Courses and DJ Swing Dances with the Drop-In Lessons are held on Saturday nights from September to the end of April at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC.
