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 8pm 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.. The Beginner Swing Lessons are held on Saturday nights at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC.

This is the most fun swing dance experience offered; well worth the effort to participate. Look smashing on the dance floor! Must have attended or be enrolled in a 6 week Intermediate Course. If not enrolled in an Intermediate course- payment for the DJ Dance required. Just show up with a partner by 10:15pm to participate. Partner required:) There is very little instruction provided, mostly just coaching while the social dance is going on.. From the videos below you choose some EASY moves to work on with your partner. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your coaching assistance before you arrive. Individual creativity is encouraged. Dips and Tricks OK, but aerials NOT OK. Aerials require spotting and more intensive instruction than can be provided during the social dance..
