About the class:
Never danced at all before? This class is for you!
Taken a few beginner classes but still lack confidence on the social floor? This class is for you, too!
Been dancing 6-count (or "East Coast") swing, but haven't learned any 8-count moves?
No partner or dance experience required.
In this 5-week series, we will introduce students to the basic 6 & 8-count rhythms used in swing/lindy hop. Emphasis will be placed on learning common 8-count moves & patterns, as well as mixing rhythms. In addition, students will be introduced to basic partnership skills and the lead/follow dynamic. The overall aim of this class is to give students a basic introduction into the world of lindy hop and provide them with a "toolbox of fun" so that they can feel comfortable on the social dance floor. Because each class will build on the material in the previous class, registration is for the whole series only. New students must attend the 1st class in order to participate (otherwise you will be behind!).
(No drop-ins without prior instructor approval. If you are a new student, or have never done any lindy hop before, you must attend the first class in order to participate in the series).
Questions? Email us at RVAswing@gmail.com. (Please do not call the Dance Space; they will be unable to answer your questions as we merely rent space from them.)
--Please sign up below using the PayPal button that corresponds to the role you wish to take, as this keeps our class roster correct and in order. If you are brand new to dancing, generally girls will sign up as follows and guys will sign up as leads, but you can choose either as long as you commit to staying in that role for the entire series. (We totally encourage everyone to learn both roles eventually.)
--If you are signing up for the "opposite" role (ie a girl as a lead or a guy as a follow), pretty please leave us a note with your registration so that we know this was intentional on your part.
--Please be sure to fill out the "Student's Name" box before you click "Buy Now", especially if you are paying for multiple registrations! :)
--If you experience any errors or difficulties with the PayPal checkout, or do not receive a confirmation email from us within 24-48 hours, please contact us at RVAswing@gmail.com.
(Psst, have a "coupon code"? That's awesome! Put it in the instructions to seller field at checkout and I'll make the adjustment in the form of a partial refund. I am fancier than PayPal is, apparently.)
Spaces remaining: 2
Spaces remaining: 4
Registered students: We'll send you a confirmation email to the address used with PayPal after you register to confirm your registration and your role selection (this is not automated, so please allow 24 hours, perhaps a bit longer on the weekends). You'll also receive an email from us the day before the first class with everything you need to know (sent to the email address you used with PayPal, so be sure to check that account) . In the mean time, please don't hesitate to contact us with questions. We can't wait to meet ya!
Refund Policy: Cancellations made before the 1st class of a series are eligible for a full refund. (Just please let us know ASAP if you know that you no longer can attend, so that we may offer that spot to someone else.) Once the series has begun, we are unable to refund you if you need to cancel for the month, but will happily transfer your registration to another month (please contact us to set this up) . No credit is given for unused classes (ie if you miss one week out of 4).
