This month we are featuring featuring Lindy Hop and aerial classes. The aerial class will require level testing and for you to come with someone to be your partner. Aerials are physically challenging and can cause injury, so these rules are for the safety of everyone. Afterwards join us and 100+ other people for a dance in the ballroom.

*Level testing is required for intermediate and advanced workshops. This will not be a weekly occurrence, just once per month, on the Saturday of our first dance each month at 6:30pm. Individuals wishing to take "beginner" classes and "all-Levels" classes do not need to participate in the track auditioning process. 


Q&A:
1) Q: Do I have to level test for beginner? A: No beginner is open for everyone!
2) Q: Will I need to level-test for advanced class every week? A: No, the level testing will only happen on the first set of classes of each month.
3) Q: I cannot make it to the level testing on the first dance weekend of the month, but I'd like to take an advanced class on the second and third dances of the month. Is there a way I can level test separately? A: At this time, no.
4) Q: At what time should I be ready to level test? A: The registration desk will close for advanced classes at 6:25pm. Level testing will begin in Kurth (on the fourth floor) at 6:30pm.
