Workshop Levels

Please be honest with us and yourself when selecting your level.  If you’re not sure whether you’re at this level, please get in touch and ask!

 

Level 1: Intermediate

 

You are comfortable leading / following both six and eight count and are regularly going social dancing. You know and can connect fundamental moves like swing outs, circles, side-by-side/hand-to-hand/tandem Charleston, with the odd variation. You’ve got the Lindy Hop bug and are keen to improve your technique and repertoire. In this level you will build up your lead and follow techniques, musicality, learn classic moves as well as new material and improve your styling.

Level 2: Intermediate/Advanced

 

You can confidently dance all the basic patterns mentioned for the Intermediate level and also variations. Moves are performed without hesitation, when people watch you dance they can see you’re dancing to the music.  You will already have been attending international workshops at this level.  There will be a lot of new material and different tempos to expand and improve your dictionary of moves and technique. Here the teaching pace will be quicker, you are keen to be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone, which is great as that’s what we expect to happen at this level.
