The California Routine is a classic lindy hop routine, which draws on all of the fundamentals of lindy hop, including 6 beat, 8 beat and charleston footwork. It includes some small lifts and is often used as a performance routine. You will need to have a good grasp of the fundamentals of lindy hop and be comfortable with swingouts for this course. We won’t be doing any of the big aerials in the routine and have adapted them so that they are achievable for everyone! As well as providing you with the moves and technique you need to complete this routine, we will also be focusing on its performance aspects.
