Swing 2
Lindy Hop Fundamentals

We’re now ready to dig deeper into classic Lindy Hop.  You’ll learn how to dance some of the most beloved classic moves, popularized by the legendary Frankie Manning.  You’ll also learn fundamentals of leading and following turns in swing dancing, and dig deeper into swing music and how you can draw inspiration from it for your dancing.

Each of these moves will come with its own fun variations, but this checklist shows the fundamental moves you’ll learn in the class.  Once you know these, you’re ready to move on to the next level.

  • face-to-face: promenade; slingshot with turn
  • opening up: sendout with redirection; follower’s and leader’s underarm turn, left-side pass
  • musicality: dancing to swing melody and phrasing

Swing 2 is a natural progression from Swing 1, where we continue developing things we started there.  If you’ve been taking beginner courses elsewhere, this might be a great place for you to start with us; just email us at [email protected]
