Apr/May/June Beginner Swing/Charleston Class - 8 weeks (A424)

  • Choose whether you'll lead or follow in the class. This doesn't follow traditional gender norms and "leading" doesn't mean you have to know what you're doing! Each role has its own responsibilities that are equally important. Be sure to enter all students' names and email addresses in the field provided.

  • A-Level classes (6 pm on Wednesdays) are for beginners or those who want to improve their basics.
    You can take them in any order, so when you start take whichever A section we are currently teaching.

    • A1 (6-Count Lindy Hop)
    • A2 (Charleston/Lindy Hop)
    • A3 (8-Count Lindy Hop)

    All of these styles are under the umbrella of "Swing Dancing" and can be woven together into one dance. We recommend that you take all three sections, in any order, as many times as you want.

    Once you complete all three sections of A, you can move on to learning more vocabulary and moves in the B-Level classes. The beginner classes offered by Lindy Maine are interchangeable with the A-Classes offered by Portland Swing Project.

    B-Level classes (7:15 pm on Wednesdays) are for students who have completed and mastered all three A-Level sections. B-Level classes mix 6-count Lindy, Charleston, and 8-count Lindy. You can also take these in any order and may be repeated as often as you'd like, as the material will change each year. Not sure if you're ready for B Class yet? Read our leveling up policy here.

    • B1 (Mixing 6 & 8 Counts)
    • B2 (Lindy Stew)
    • B3 (Swingout Funshop)
    • B4 (Beyond Basic Charleston)
    • B5 (Lindy Stew II)
