Class Level Descriptions

Lindy Hop

The Lindy Hop classes at Lindy Diversion will be progressive throughout the weekend. Friday night’s classes will focus on the fundamentals of the swing out (from closed and open position), as well as the swing circle. This is a great opportunity to brush up on the basics of Lindy Hop, or learn them for the first time. We recommend that everyone planning to take the Lindy Hop track attend the Friday night classes.

Saturday and Sunday classes will be progressive, and will continually build on each other. You’ll need to know the swing out from open and closed, as well as the swing circle, to be fully prepared for the classes.


The Friday night Blues classes at Lindy Diversion will focus on the basics, including solo movement and partnered dancing, both in open and closed position. Whether it is your first time taking blues classes, or you’re just finding a new way to look at the basics, you’ll be able to take away a wealth of knowledge.

Classes on Saturday and Sunday will be fully progressive, and will focus on a number of topics that are carefully tailored to the individual dancers at the event. These classes will be geared towards intermediate dancers and up. Our small class sizes will guarantee individual attention from the instructors during the event.

Teacher Training

Do you teach in your local scene (or have the desire to start)? Are you trying to push to teach at events regionally and beyond? Our teacher training track is just for you!

Our instructors will spend time with you working on how best to communicate information to your students. They’ll focus on the pedagogy of teaching dance, as well as how to come up with lesson plans, communicate your ideas, and come up with exercises that will make a lasting impact on your students.

Bring your notebooks, questions, and maybe even a lesson plan, and our instructors will help you take your teaching skills to the next level!
