Class Descriptions

There are Level 1 classes on Tuesdays at Youngblood (in the city bowl), Thursdays in Rosebank, and on Tuesdays in Stellenbosch. Check the class schedules to see when the next course begins, or when drop-in classes are scheduled.

The third hour (8:30 – 9:30) on Tuesdays in the CBD is for social dancing, and this is where the real fun happens, so be sure to stick around after class! If you are only taking a class the first hour, grab a bite somewhere delicious on Bree and then return for social dancing afterwards!

LEVEL 1: Introduction to Lindy Hop

Classes designed specifically for first time dancers with Boogie Back Dance Co. and those wanting to refine their fundamentals.

LEVEL 2: Beginner

Requires completion of Level 1 courses

Once you’ve been dancing for a few months in Level 1 courses, you’re going to start itching for more… A sure sign that you’re ready for Level 2 courses is when you are confident social dancing the material in all four of the Level 1 courses.

LEVEL 3: Intermediate

Requires completion of Level 2 courses

Level 3 is for dancers who are no longer being challenged by the Level 2 material and would like to delve deeper into lindy hop.

LEVEL 4: Intermediate-Advanced

By invitation only

This level is for our most experienced dancers at Boogie Back – expect to dig deep and work hard. These classes are not in a fixed course structure, but will be offered but cover modules on musicality, improvisation, fast dancing, hard choreographies, solid partnership as well as more technical skills like spins, slides and stops. This is a space where dancers can really work on finding their individual voice in the dance and take their skills to the next level.
