Levels

Beginner:

You started dancing a few months ago and do not yet have much experience on the social dance floor. You’re getting the gist of the basics, but are still new to the swing scene. If you want to take a further step into this world, join our festival! Enjoy Lindy Hop classes with our guest teachers and one or two parties with live swing music!! (Only with the Beginner Pass)

Level 1:

You know the basics of Lindy Hop, 6- and 8-count structures, and are able to use them to communicate with your partner relatively fluently. You also know simple Jazz Steps, such as those in the Shim Sham. If you want to strengthen your basics and learn to make your dancing more fluent and more musical, this is your level.

Level 2:

You’ve been dancing Lindy Hop for a couple of years at least; you go social dancing frequently and have visited some workshops and festivals. You feel comfortable swinging out at medium tempos and you may have begun to explore new rhythms and syncopation. You are also able to memorize new steps and simple choreographies. You have a solid connection and are able to adapt to different partners. You’ve also started to understand the importance of Solo Jazz in your dance and are very familiar with simple choreographies such as the Shim Sham. If you want to further develop rhythmic variations and musicality, this is your level.

Level 3:

You’ve been to many workshops and festivals, and are capable of teaching basic Lindy Hop in your local scene. You enjoy rhythm, syncopation, and advanced musicality and they are very much a part of your dancing. You add to your partner dance with Solo Jazz and feel at ease at both very fast and very slow tempos. You have a good grasp on Solo choreographies such as Tranky Doo or Big Apple. You go social dancing as often as you can and are well-known in your scene.

Level 4:

You’re crazy about Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz and attend festivals near and far whenever your have the chance. You practice often to keep improving. You are an experienced dancer able to participate in competitions or to teach Lindy Hop and/or Solo Jazz at the beginner and advanced levels. Your dancing is very fluent at high and low tempos and you can lead and follow. You’re a true social dancer and you inspire others with your dancing, both solo and with a partner. You want to continue to learn and enjoy this dance.
