    Lindy Hop Combinations
    Learn some unique yet useful lindy hop combinations. This class will have a variety of material that will add to your lindy hop repertoire.

    Fast Lindy Does it seem like every time the song gets fast, that you just do the same thing over and over? Well, this isn't your typical fast lindy class…learn how to be musical and stylish with variety in your fast lindy while keeping up with those upper tempos.

    Lindy Improv & Rhythms
    will help you make the dance your own. Learn how to play with the rhythms of the music while dancing with your partner. This class will open up ideas for styling and bringing the music into your dance.

    Partner Charleston
    Inspired by the film clip, After Seben, this class will go over lots of fun 1920's Partner Charleston variations. Charleston and the Breakaway evolved into lindy hop. Learning uptown old time charleston will help you better understand lindy hop while expanding your repertoire with some fun Partner Charleston moves and techniques.

    The Tranky Doo
    Along with the Shim Sham and the Big Apple, the Tranky Doo was a staple of the Savoy Ballroom in the 1940's. The Tranky Doo was choreographed by Al Minns and Leon James of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers and was originally danced to the song "Tuxedo Junction".
