Ellwood’s Community Classroom
Jazz Dance Education Council (JDEC)
Get moving and get introduced to Lindy Hop and the world of Jazz dance! Two, 1-hour classes are offered each Monday through our friends at JDEC, a local non-profit dedicated to preserving and advancing authentic Jazz dance in RVA.
The first class (6:30 to 7:30PM), is an intermediate level month-long series on a specific style of Lindy Hop. The class theme will rotate monthly, so there’s always something new. The full list of classes offered by JDEC is maintained here.
The second class (7:30 to 8:30PM), will also be a month-long series at a beginner level and is a great introduction to this old-timey, lively, swing dancing. Participants will progress from having no prior knowledge of Lindy Hop to the basic skills needed to enjoy social dancing at moderate tempos of swing music. In particular, you’ll build a strong foundation to continue your growth as a Lindy Hopper.
No partner or dance experience needed, just comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothing and shoes. But the most important thing to bring is a willingness to let go, try something new, and have fun!
