LINDY BY THE SEA
Opening our doors in 1998, "Lindy By The Sea" boasts the biggest and longest running Swing Dance and Lindy Hop program in Los Angeles. Our goal is to nurture a kind, fun, welcoming, and skilled community of swing dancers.
NO PARTNER NEEDED!
We rotate, so you'll have plenty of people with whom to dance!
WHO TAKES YOUR CLASSES?
Well, it seems like just about everyone. We have all ages (though mostly adults) and all backgrounds. Everyone seems to come for the same reasons... to have fun, to learn something new, to meet new people, to get exercise, and to forget their woes.

World-renown instructor, dancer, performer, and Lindy By The Sea founder Rusty Frank is joined by award-winning dancers Ron Campbell and Ted Stanley. Together they have over 60 years of teaching experience. Wow!

Series cards sales are final, but they are good for one year from purchase date. If you miss a class, you may make up this class anytime in a year, or you may even use the "spot" for any class you'd like to review a special move, etc. Your series card purchase is transferable but non-refundable.

WHAT DO WE TEACH?
We have a wonderful curriculum that will take you from an absolute beginner on up to a seasoned swing dancer. Read all about it HERE .
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEN LEVEL 1 A & B? DOES IT MATTER WHICH ONE I START ON?
We want our students to get really good basics, so Levels 1A & 1B start exactly the same, but then in weeks 3 & 4, you learn completely new material. Our hope is that you'll eventually take Levels 1 and 2 twice, and it doesn't matter at all which one you start with.
MAY I TAKE MORE THAN ONE SERIES AT A TIME?
Yes! As a matter of fact you get 50% discount on additional classes taken in the same series. Most people, who are absolute beginners, just start with Level 1. Then the next series they repeat Level 1 and add on Level 2.
CAN I JUST DROP IN?
Yes, you can definitely drop in for a class. The price is $20 for one hour class. But we do ask that you don't drop in after Week 2 of our 4-week series.
WHAT IS THE GOLDEN TICKET?
The Golden Ticket is for our Intermediate Students: You can take any and all classes in that 4-week series. What a deal! (For Beginners, don't get the Golden Ticket yet, as the other classes will be too advanced for you... for now!). Note: Golden Ticket classes have to be used in a single 4-week series, rather than over consecutive months.
THEY ARE THE SAME PRICE...SHOULD I GET A GOLDEN TICKET? OR A 3 CLASS CARD?
A Golden Ticket has to be used during a single 4-week series. So if you think you are going to miss a night, get the 3-Series Card... then if you miss one night, you still have the makeup classes.
GROUP DANCE CLASSES
Lindy By The Sea group classes include: East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop, as well as featured classes in Balboa, Collegiate Shag, 1920s Charleston, Performance, and more. Our three instructors have over 50 years of combined teaching experience. Our classes and follow a well-thought out curriculum, and are extremely upbeat and fun.
