About the class:

Are you finishing up one of our 6-week Intro units and are eager to learn even more Lindy Hop goodness?

Or maybe you've done some Lindy Hop in the past and want to dust off your swingout?

Join Sydney & Jordon for 4 weeks of Lindy Hop fun!  They'll share some tips & tricks to improve your dancing, and of course, teach you some sweet new moves. In this level, we will start to really focus on how moves work & how to refine our partnership skills.

This unit will focus on improving novice students' ability to execute swing-outs, but will also touch on some more intermediate-level turns. 

Students taking this class should have taken an RVA Swing Intro to Swing* class OR, at minimum, be able demonstrate 6 and 8 count Lindy rhythms with triple steps, basic inside/outside turns, and swing outs.

Important Level Stuff:

--If you only took the first few weeks of your Intro series, you are not prepared to take this class unless you make special arrangements to make up the material. 

--If you have only learned 6-count swing (what most ballroom studios call "East Coast Swing") you will need to complete our 6 week Intro series before taking any Lindy 2 class at RVA Swing.

--*If you were in Ryan & Erica's March/April 2024 Intro series, that cohort did not make it through the entire Intro syllabus and are not prepared to take this class, unless they also took the 2A unit that started May 7th. You will need to take the next Intro level series if you did not take Ryan & Erica's May Lindy 2A.

This class is a standard Rotating Partner class, and students will change partners throughout class.
