Virtual Classes for September

Sep. 4, 2021

Hey everybody. We're excited as all of you to get back on the dance floor, however the safety and health of our community continues to be our highest priority. With the delta variant of coivd-19 causing Masschusetts rates to increase once again we are continuing to hold off on in-person indoor classes. In the meantime though we plan to hold some virtual classes so you can continue to work on your dancing.

You can check out our first September virtual class, a three week solo jazz series at this link.

What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is the original Swing Dance, developed by the Black community in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s.  There are numerous other swing dances out there, but virtually all of them evolved out of the patterns and rhythms of the Lindy Hop.  The dance still has a large and active following throughout the world today!

You can learn more about the history of the dance from this Yehoodi film.
