We are proud to welcome the internationally renowned Lindy Hop champions Kevin St. Laurent & Jo Hoffberg!
This Fall, Kevin & Jo will be offering 4 different Lindy Hop classes and
2 levels of Solo Jazz classes.
Kevin and Jo are excited to return to our fabulous city, Vienna!
In all of their classes – solo jazz and lindy hop – they understand that some students may have previously joined their classes. Some of the “foundational material will be similar,” but there will be a new series of moves and exercises. Their main goal is to make the material fun, thought-provoking, and challenging!
There will be two full weekly nights of classes from October 4 – December 7, 2016. Tuesday is for Intermediate and Intermediate-advanced dancers.
Wednesday is for Advanced and Advanced Plus dancers.
Sign up for the night appropriate to your level and Kevin and Jo will hand select you for the perfect level on your night.

Lindy Hoppers not quite comfortable calling themselves lindy hoppers. You’ve probably been dancing for at least a year and now you want more. You know lots of figures, but are ready for more technique to kickstart your improvement.
You’re almost totally addicted. You just need more. Learning with international superstars Kevin and Jo sounds like just the ticket to step up your game.
You have two types of friends, dancers… and non-dancers. You probably often travel to events outside of Austria, but you understand the motto… never stop learning!
You are definitely a lindy hopper. You’ve been dancing for several years and have been to at least one international dance camp. You might be advanced plus, but it depends on who else shows up.
“Jazz steps and solo movement are an important part of the historic roots of Lindy Hop that are often overlooked among new dancers. Whether utilized to show off during an individual ‘shine’ moment, or danced with a partner in a lead and follow manner, jazz steps are great for decorating and embellishing your dancing…like sprinkles on a cake.” – Nathan Dias
Solo Jazz 1
You’ve heard of solo jazz and see other dancers getting their jazz on, but maybe haven’t done much of it yet yourself. Join us to learn some variations to go into your lindy hop, some of the vintage Jazz standards, and for some flash and flair!
Oct. 11 – Dec. 6

Solo Jazz 2
You’ve been in solo jazz classes before and can nail the Shim Sham like a champ. You’ve maybe even done the Tranky Doo and Big Apple before. This is the place to add to your repertoire and polish what you already know to let yourself shine!

(No class on Oct. 26)
Class material will be different from the 2015 Session.
