Pass By Leg Catch

It's funky and fun, but this full commitment move doesn't work when done partially. Attention: Leaders should know and be comfortable with their partners before trying it.

Extreme Drags

The name says it all. Not for the faint of heart. Follows need to be strong and resilient. Leaders need to be stable bases not afraid to apply intense energy at the correct moments. It's a fine line between failure and success, but worth the effort when the move is achieved.

Johnnie’s Rock

Who's Johnnie? We can't answer that, but we can teach you how he rocked. We learned this early on in our lindy lives and have enjoyed it ever since. I'm sure someone knows the history of it, and perhaps we should, but we don't. So please send us an email and educate us. We're so busy dancing we don't always read up on our history (hanging heads in shame).

Texas Tommy Lunge

The Texas Tommy lunge is simultaneously spectacular and dangerous. Start slowly and learn the shapes and technique before fully committing to this move. When energy is applied intensively at the proper moments, the power of lindy hop can shine through, but it's a fine line to disaster so proceed gently at first.

Follower’s Sugar Push Variations

An excellent variety of options for followers to shine while in the sugar push. Leaders need to be attentive and flexible while maintaining the general flow and ready to continue into the next move. 

Tow the Line

High risk, but great payoff. The leader has to fully commit to the shape and rotation and then hope their follow will respond quickly and smoothly. Falling over is to be expected. Jump up and try again.

Hip Trip Lock Up

This is a low aerial for partners only. It's not excessively dangerous, but many a folks have crashed and burned on this seemingly easy aerial. Depending on your weight differential, choose the role of 'base' or 'flyer' to effectively get this move to work. We then challenge you to use it sparingly and to hit the musical break when you do.

Crazy Legs Lift

The name says it all, but remember it's the good kind of crazy. However, don't be the bad crazy and just try this with any partner. Limit this move to people you know, trust and have practiced with previously. So get crazy, but not too crazy...

Lindy Shock Lift

This move get's its name from the logo of the annual event in Budapest, Hungary called Lindy Shock. The move is definitely older, but we love the event and we love this simple, but flashy lift.

Mixing 6, 8 & Charleston Rhythms (Lv. 1)

It's all in the transitions! Spending time to thoroughly know the entrances and exits to each move can make all the difference when you get to the social dance floor. Naturally you need to know the basic partnered charleston figures before you worry about transitions.
