Basic Lindy Hop
The best way to learn is to get started NOW!
A long time ago, we used to teach Lindy Hop. We don't do this anymore (mainly because of work responsibilities) and we reccommend that you seek out current instructors in the DC Area. This section is included as a historic artifact that demonstrates the difficulty of developing
So, read along and have a chuckle at our attempts at pedagogy.
Our approach to the Lindy Hop was threefold:
We have a lot of material to get through, so come prepared to work and learn!
The in-class lessons will be supplemented with graphics and other materials on our website (see below).
The effect of our curriculum is cumulative, so you have to attend all the sessions to get the full benefit. Also, we will give you exercises to do at home that will get you in shape for dancing.
Here's what we plan to teach! (Click on the hyperlinks to read about the Lesson. If you can learn well from written materials, they are yours for the taking)
Lindy Hop is a lot like Tinker Toys or Lego --- you can put the pieces together in zillions of ways to create an infinite array of movements. We will teach you the individual pieces and how to put them together. During the workshop, we will build a "choreographed routine" that will give you a "survival skills" on the dance floor until your improvisational skills build.
We'll get you started and out on the dance floor, but you have to Dance, Dance, Dance in order to master Lindy Hop
