Lindy Hop Fundamentals: 6-week class with Ragtag Empire at Urban Movement Arts
October 13 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Sunday, repeating until November 17, 2019
Ragtag Empire teaches the original Swing dance, otherwise known as Lindy Hop. Lindy Hop was created by young black teenagers in Harlem in the 1930’s. Lindy Hop is danced with a partner to classic big band music, swampy New Orleans jazz ,or even Motown.
Ragtag encourages new dancers to choose to learn either leading or following (regardless of gender). No partner necessary; all our classes rotate partners constantly because learning happens more quickly and it’s more fun! Classes are taught by dancers active in the Lindy Hop scene, who are always expanding their range of teaching tools and Lindy techniques.
at Urban Movement Arts: 2100 Chestnut Street, 2nd Floor. Enter on 21st street between Poi Dog and the Deli. $65/6-weeks
