INTERMEDIATE CLASS

Building on the basics presented in the beginner level, intermediate classes are designed to expand your vocabulary and skills. You never need a partner; we rotate partners in our classes so everyone has a chance to learn and practice. 

Intermediate students should be familiar with the essentials of swing:
• Six-count patterns
• Eight-count Lindy Whip and Circle
• Side-by-Side and Back Charleston
Gottaswing instructors reserve the right to make final determination as to appropriate class level.

Tuition is $140 per person for the eight-week session.

COVID-19 CLASS REGISTRATION POLICY:
• Fully-vaccinated students only. Please present proof of vaccination status on the first night of class.
• Pre-registration online only. No registrations will be taken in class.
• Online payment via credit card only.
IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING MASKS: Commencing with classes beginning in May, some venues are going mask-optional. Please read class info carefully. For venues where masks are required, N95 and KN95 masks are recommended.
• No refunds or class credits will be made if you are unable to complete the class.
• If covid-19 concerns prompt suspension of classes, every effort will be made to resume classes when the suspension is lifted. No refunds or class credits will be made by Gottaswing.

    Cha Cha can be done to almost any swing tempo, and it’s fun to mix it up with your swing now and then. Rumba, which shares many of Cha Cha’s moves, looks great with the slower tempos and provides another option for slow dances. These two are a great addition to your swing dance repertoire!
