Lindy in the Park’s FREE beginner’s lesson every Sunday

12 to 12:30 p.m.


Come and learn the basics of Swing Dancing

Lindy in the Park offers a free weekly beginning swing dance lesson, taught by Hep Jen, who is generously donating her time to the cause, and various guest instructors.

The lessons are short, easy, and fun! And best of all — FREE!

No partner is required, as we’ll be rotating leaders and followers throughout the lesson.

Come learn a few steps and join us on the dance floor!

Visit Hep Jen’s website for more information on her weekly classes or for private lessons.
