Levels 

  • Introduction: You don’t know Lindy Hop nor Blues nor solo swing dances. You want to try theses dances in couple and/or solo.
  • Beginner: You have been practicing swing dances for 6 to 12-18 months. You can recognise the rhythm of Lindy, Charleston and Groove Walk. You are starting to master 8-steps basics and have some notions of 6-steps parts.
  • Advanced: (audition on Friday night) You are a big fan of swing dances! You dance whenever you can and you have already been to a few festivals/workshops. You can mix rhythm, techniques and style at different speeds, but you still have things to learn!
