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.
