Lindy hop levels

No previous knowledge is needed, just bring your dance shoes and your will to learn and we will take it from there.

At this level you have danced for at least ten hours of classes. You are expected to be in control over both eight counts and six counts and have the ability to lead or follow a few simple figures.

You have danced for around a year. You should be able to mix the two different basic steps without a problem and being in control over how to lead or follow the differences between them both. You love being on the social dance floor and take every opportunity to practice.


Your dance connects to the music more and more. You have a good variety of figures. You can lead / follow clearly. You should be able to manage slow tempo as well as more up tempo. Your technique and basics should be at the level where you can use different rhythmical variation and improvise.

You have danced for more than 3 years. Your life is filled with lindy hop. Classes, camps, parties, all the time. You have no problem leading, following, making improvisation to really fast music. You cannot count how many moves you know. You have your definitive dance style that makes your dance different. You can express musicality, mood and your personality.
