7:00 – 8:00pm Fundamentals with Chloe & Brady
This is our beginner-level course with a focus on social dancing within lindy hop, playing with rhythm and the classic steps. This block we’ll be introducing CHARLESTON steps and rhythms to our repertoire! No prior knowledge required.
You are welcome to take our Fundamentals block as many times as desired, or until you are ready to move into an intermediate level.

7:00 – 8:00pm Solo Jazz with Loz Yee
This all levels course is about all things CHARLESTON, from styling and variations to repertoire and rhythms. Taking inspiration from vintage chorus lines through to the Whiteys Lindy Hoppers, we’ll explore lots of options and discover what made the Charleston the most popular dance craze of the 1920s and beyond.


8:00 – 9:00pm Lindy Hop Roots with Noni & Krystian
Swivels, styling and syncopation! This course will help you discover how to allow space in your Lindy Hop for inspiring your partner and for them to inspire you – share a conversation. Everyone will have the chance to add classic variations and personal styling to a social dance, along with refining your fundamentals.

8:00 – 9:00pm Beginner Tap for Lindy Hoppers with Grant Swift
Back in the day if you could dance, you could tap. A lot of the fundamental movement we see in Jazz dance today has it’s roots in African dance and tap dance. Rhythm is everything, without we couldn’t do the Lindy Hop, Charleston or any kind of dance for that matter. What does it mean to do a Tacky Annie? What is the rhythm behind it? Find out with Grant Swift at Fitzroy – All welcome! Tap shoes not required.

** This is a stand-alone course. Cost is $99 per person for the 6-week course.
No discounts apply.
