Lindy Hop is the grand daddy of all swing dances from the 1920s to the 40s.
This is the dance that Eastside Stomp considers our specialty. All of the material from the Intro to Swing class series works hand in hand with everything you’ll learn in Lindy Hop.
We rotate between three, 4-week Level One Lindy Hop series classes designed to get you confident on the floor!
-Classic 6 and 8 count moves
Classes are 6:30-7:30 on Fridays, and can be taken in any order.
Balboa is a classic swing dance from southern California. Its close embrace and shuffle-filled footwork make it ideal for dancing to super fast music without breaking too much of a sweat.
We dance it to all of the same music that we play on a Friday, so it’s a great way to add some more depth to your dancing!
Whether you're in it to win it or just bal-curious, you'll be glad you joined us!
Balboa 1 is 7:30-8:30, and Balboa 2 is 6:30-7:30, both on Friday evening.
