Tandem Charleston

Tandem Charleston can take a moment to get used to as it requires the follower to feel the lead without being able to see the leader.  Both roles should feel confident with their basic Charleston rhythm. Do it small at first until you find the flow with your partner.

Tandem Push Out

The Tandem Push Out is an easy variation of the basic Tandem Charleston.

Tandem Entrance

It's good to know where you are going before you get there, that's why we teach the entrance after you have had a chance to practice the Tandem itself. This flashy entrance uses everything you have learned so far from the Side by Side to the Kick Ups and then a turn into Tandem.

Tandem Exit

This Tandem exit brings you into open position and is a great option for transitioning into another rhythm (6 count or 8 count) or you can get back to closed position and keep up the Charleston. 

Reverse Push Out

A cool variation to the standard Charleston push out from tandem. The reverse uses the other hand, maintains rotational flow and will surely impress even the most judgmental gaggle of geese.

Tandem Turn

A solid staple of a move for tandem position. It's straight forward and classic, but every Lindy hopper should know it inside and out. 

Chase into Tandem

A staple Lindy move that every Lindy hopper should know. Lots of cool variations build off this classic so get proficient with this "basic" move.

Tandem to Cross Hand Transitions

Transitions are the glue of Lindy Hop. They might not be flashy, but they are essential for keeping the dance together. Never underestimate the power of a smooth and musical transition.

Tandem Rainbow with Traveling Kicks

It starts like the regular Tandem Rainbow, but then diverges into some cool traveling kicks. The basket arm position can feel weird at first, but with practice it will be come second nature.
