International Lindy Hop Championships, August 27-30, 2015

Workshop and LED Schedule

2014 ILHC Schedule below – 2015 Schedule coming soon

NOTE: The level of dancers at ILHC is typically a lot higher than most events. Intermediate at ILHC would be considered advanced at most regional classes.

Intermediate: You are becoming more comfortable with higher tempos and have a nice repertoire of moves on the social dance floor. You have a good connection with your partner, can use dance tricks without interfering with your lead/follow and are adapting to different lead/follow techniques on the social dance floor.

Intermediate/Advanced: You have taken tons of classes, have a lot of moves, are beginning to feel comfortable in the competitive arena and are looking for that extra edge. You are looking for a class that will work on the quality – not quantity – of your moves and your musicality, as well as refine your lead/follow technique.

Advanced: You have been dancing long enough with a sufficient level and quality of dancing that you are actually hoping every class will be devoted to taking your swing-out, tearing it apart, and putting it back together again. “Tricks, schmicks, teach me how to dance.”

Masters: If you feel the need to ask if you should be in this level, the answer is likely not.
