The Lindy Hop is a rhythmic and joyous swing dance created by the African American community in the early part of the 20th century. We teach these dances out of love and respect for the history of the dance. These swing dances include Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Charleston, Balboa, Shag, Soul, and Blues. Which are typically danced to vintage jazz, neo-swing, blues, jump blues, and big band music. Total beginners are welcomed and encouraged to take the Lindy Hop 1 classes. For those looking to be challenged with more technique, choreography, and cool moves we offer our Lindy Hop 2 classes.
Balboa is a form of swing dance that started as early as 1915 and gained popularity in the 1930s and 1940s. The basic steps of Balboa are very simple and allow for a variety of footwork variations. It’s mostly danced in a closed position and danced to vintage jazz music. Come learn this fun Orange County swing dance with us!
Collegiate Shag is a high-energy partner dance from the 1930s, danced to mid and uptempo jazz music from the 1930s-1960s.
