Our 3 tracks of classes for the weekend. and the expected level of experience for each one, are:
Lieutenant: You’ve learned the basics of 6-count, 8-count, and Charleston, although you’re still working on ironing out some rough patches. You're mostly comfortable on the social floor, but higher tempos can be slightly challenging.
Captain: You can smoothly transition between 6-count, 8-count and Charleston at a variety of speeds. Your dancing is mostly clean and structured, and you want to improve your technique and musicality. You have a moderately large swing dance vocabulary and likely have some experience with other styles of swing dance (Balboa, Shag, Blues...)
Admiral: You have been dancing consistently for multiple years and have experience with performance teams or teaching. You have a broad knowledge of moves and variations, and are confident in dancing at a variety of tempos and to a variety of styles.
