SwingColumbus strongly encourages their students to attend all lessons, as there will be no make-up classes or refunds for classes missed.

Intro to Lindy Hop Series: 6:45 – 7:45 PM

Daniel and Gail will teach Lindy Hop from the beginning. No experience required! This class series is designed for dancers who have taken less than 4 Lindy Hop classes or have never taken a class with SwingColumbus. No partner is required in order to take this class.

This is a social dancing class.

Intermediate Lindy Hop Series: 8:00 – 9:00 PM

Continue your journey to becoming a comfortable lindy hopper with the Lindyroos, Mark Calkins and Shannon Varner! In this series Shannon and Mark will show how you can mix swing patterns seamlessly, while adding new turns and variations to add to your dance tool belt. There will be “new” topics covered in this series!

This class is designated “Beyond Basics”, meaning it is geared to dancers who are looking to move beyond our entry-level beginner classes. Individuals should already be familiar with 8 Count & 6 Count footwork, as well as mechanics of the Swing Out. This class series is designed for dancers who have taken more than 5 social Lindy Hop classes with SwingColumbus or elsewhere. No partner is required in order to take this class.

Team SwingColumbus performs at Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society

Hey there swing dancers!

Quick reminder that Team SwingColumbus will be performing TODAY March 18 at the Clintonville Woman’s Club. We believe the performance is slotted for around 3 PM, during Ragtime Rick & the Chefs of Dixieland band break. Thank you to the Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society for hosting our competition team, and giving our dancers another rehearsal before competing in Knoxville next weekend!

If you missed the February performance in Dayton, this is your opportunity to see a choreographed routine that is mostly Charleston. This is a high energy routine with A LOT of dancers, our largest team ever! Expand your horizons and cheer on your fellow dancers!

The remainder of the dance is BYOB, and we suggest (since the songs this band plays are on the longer side) to jump onto the dance floor a minute or two into the song.

Sunday March 18, 2018 2 PM – 5 PM
Hosted by Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society
Clintonville Woman’s Club
3951 N High St, Columbus, Ohio 43214

Special performance by Team SwingColumbus around 3 PM
Admission: $10 for dancers
