Sundays at Holy Grounds Youth Center at the Severna Park Community Center

Beginner class 6-7 p.m.
Intermediate class 7-8 p.m.
Special Topic class 8-9 p.m.

Beginner Classes
The beginner class always covers the same material. Beginner lindy hop students learn 6-count material (what some people call East Coast swing or triple swing) and 8-count moves. The 8-count moves we cover are the swingout, lindy circle, charleston, half-turn charleston, and tandem charleston. There is a lot of repetition built into the structure of the class.

Intermediate Classes
The intermediate class builds students’ dance repertoire and technique. Over the course of a year, we cover a full cycle of basic lindy hop moves in the intermediate class.

Special Topics
Often we teach or invite guest instructors to teach. Prior dance topics include: blues, swingout clinic, charleston intensive, aerials, and a solo charleston routine.
