✴️ Rising Stars (Intermediate/Explorers/Level C)
You should know how to do a swingout, Lindy circle, and basic Lindy and Charleston figures.
You’ve taken classes and workshops, and have gained confidence with social dancing. Goals will be to take your dancing to a new level, with a concentration on smooth transitions, good lead-follow skills, learning to dance at a wider range of tempos, and expanding your musicality.
? Shooting Stars (Advanced/Challengers+/Level D/E)
You know all basic figures and want to work on improving your flow, consistency, rhythm, partnership, and maybe also create nice shapes.
Dancing Lindy Hop has been a big part of your life for several years, or maybe much longer. You enjoy traveling to dance events, and usually do so on a regular basis. Social dancing feels like home, and you are comfortable adjusting to a wide variety of partners, regardless of their experience or ability.
