New 4 week BEGINNER classes offered by the LA Swing Dance Posse.

Every Monday, from Nov 26 – Dec 17, 7:30pm – 8:30 pm in Torrance, CA

What will Lindy Hop Swing Beginner Class cover?
For some, partner dancing is a totally new experience so in the beginner class, we will focus on Fundamentals of Lead and Follow, Basic Swing Hold and Basic Swing Rhythm to get you dancing by the end of the first class!

As we progress, we’ll touch on dance posture and frame towards achieving great partner work. We’ll also work in basic 6 and 8 count figures. By the end of the 4th week, you’ll be able to do the Swing-Out and will be swing dancing on the dance floor!
