THE INTERMEDIATE CONTINUING CLASS: CONTINUING LINDY HOP
We’re starting off the new year right with a scrubbing bubbles series for your lindy hop. We’re going to get down and dirty on technique so you can come out squeaky clean to start your new year on the right foot. So come prepared to roll up your sleeves, and get to work because we’re getting geeky with it.
