Swing  the night away at Pick School of Ballroom Dancing. Music like the selections below will get your feet a tapping and you up on the dance floor in a hurry...

If you are new to swing dancing this monthly series is for you! Beg 1  Swing  is a fun social dance that is an instantly accessible way to enjoy social dancing to swing jazz, blues and rock and roll music. Swing is a form of social partner dance that evolved from Lindy Hop in the late 1940’s and early 50’s, and is based in six-count patterns that are simplified from of Lindy Hop patterns.  In practice on the social dance floor, the six count steps of the Swing can be mixed with the eight count steps of Lindy Hop and Charleston.  No experience or partner is necessary. Beg 1 Swing is a 4 week series that will be rotated into the schedule Mondays at 7pm or 8pm. Classes are progressive, therefore every week within the four week series we build upon the moves taught in the previous class. Intermediate Swing will always be offered Tuesdays at 7pm.

Lindy Hop

Lindy Hop is the original American swing dance, also known as Jitterbug, which was created in the late 30’s and 40’s to really swing to the jazz music of the times which was being played in the dance halls in Harlem.  Danced to a wide range of tempos, there is a strong pulse that drives the movement of the dance, and the music is traditionally big band swing from the Golden Era of Jazz. Lindy Hop is danced to an eight count rhythm and is generally characterized as a fairly lively and happy dance.  Learn the basics of Lindy Hop including the Swing Out, Texas Tommy, Outside and Inside Turns, Lindy Circle, Charleston, and various follower and some leader turns.  Lindy Hop will be rotated into the schedule Monday at 7pm or 8pm.
