Class Schedule Please note that Monday classes are 50 minutes long and all start on the hour Classes on other days are 60 minutes long and start at 6pm or 7.15pm Beginner Lindy Hop Classes: Absolute beginners are more than welcome, you’re encouraged! No experience or partner required. We recommend doing the beginner course twice through (or once plus the beginner bootcamp!) so that you feel confident before moving on up. We always do the basic rhythms, but we change up the moves every block so it won’t be the same your second time around! Beginner course  (minimum 2 blocks): Have fun, feel good and learn the basics! Improver course (2-3 blocks): Feel more comfortable and confident dancing! Intermediate (minimum 8 blocks, or one year): Settle in, get to know everyone, learn heaps, have fun and expand your dancing and community! After intermediate, we have different advanced streams based on what people are interested in doing as they continue learning: Work it Out (Discuss with a teacher to join this class): A workshop style advanced class designed to empower dancers to explore their own dancing technique and expression. Work it Out largely focuses on social dancing experiences and dancing toward good connection, communication and having a fun and creative time on the dance floor. Break it Down (Discuss with a teacher to join this class): Break it Down is an advanced class with a strong focus on the technical aspects of dancing. This is a class for really drilling into technique points, making active changes to your style and developing an original voice in your dancing. If you are super keen to geek out and drill waaaaay down, or if you have goals for your dancing like competing, performing or teaching, Break it Down might be the class for you.  If you are not sure which class you best fit into, don’t hesitate to have a chat to us and we can point you in the right direction!  Workshops If you’ve got a tricky schedule, weekly classes aren’t your thing or you just want more dancing in your life, Full Swing also runs regular weekend workshops! We’ve got Beginner Bootcamps if you’re just starting out or taster classes so you can try different styles, plus intensive intermediate and advanced classes so there’s bound to be something for everyone!
