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.

YOUR DANCE TEACHERS
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!

ANNOUNCING...
LINDY BY THE SEA'S SWING REPERTOIRE
PERFORMANCE TROUPE!

STARTING OCTOBER 22, 2019!
With the "JEEP JOCKEY JUMP" ROUTINE

We are so excited, and we hope you will be, too!

WHAT IS IT?
Announcing, for the first time in Los Angeles, a troupe, a company of dancers of all Lindy Hop levels who wish to learn the Lindy Hop swing dance repertoire, and perform!

WHAT WILL IT INCLUDE?
Each 4-week series*, you'll learn one of the classic Lindy Hop routines, known throughout the world.
And each week, we'll practice the one's we've already done.
- Jeep Jockey Jump
- The Big Apple
- The Lindy Chorus
- The California Routine
- The Shim Sham
- The Tranky Doo
- The Jitterbug Stroll
- Big John Special
*Sometimes the routines will take two series to learn, as they are more involved.

WHAT WILL BE THE FIRST ROUTINE?
"Jeep Jockey Jump"!

This is a great routine to start our troupe. It's an upbeat dance filled Swingouts, Charleston, and Switches. You'll learn the routine in two weeks, and then "fancy-up" the Swingouts and Charleston with some awesome variations (Harlem Swingouts & Savoy Kicks).
By the way, This routine was created back in 1998 by Rusty Frank & Sylvia Skylar, when they had a professional job and needed a routine within a few days! It's been performed around the world, ever since.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS TROUPE & YOUR CAMP HOLLYWOOD TEAM?
In the Troupe you'll be learning entire historic routines quickly and then practicing them every week as we build the repertoire. No standing around as Rusty & Ron experiment. You'll be dancing your feet off!
Unlike our Camp Hollywood team routines, where we create a brand new performance routine over a five-month period with loads of formation changes, that is done just a few times and then lost to the world...except on video. Both Team and Troupe are super fun, just very different pacing. (For those who have been on one of our Camp Hollywood teams, imagine the last four weeks of practices!)

WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE TROUPE MEET?
Tuesday nights from 8:00pm-9:00pm at our regular Lindy By The Sea location, 406 E. Grand Avenue.

WHERE WILL THE TROUPE PERFORM?
Good question! Of course, we'll perform regularly at Rusty's, and we'll look for other opportunities at senior homes, veteran facilities, community events, etc.

WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone can join who knows their Lindy Hop Basics (Swingouts, Sugar Pushes, Lindy Charleston, etc.).

DO I NEED A PARTNER?
Nope. (Isn't that nice?!)

WHO ARE THE COACHES?
Rusty Frank & Ron Campbell

HOW MUCH IS IT?
It will be priced like our regular classes and can be bundled (yes, you would get a discount if you were doing more than one class a night).

IF I JOIN THE CLASS, DO I HAVE TO BE PART OF THE TROUPE?
DO I HAVE TO PERFORM?

No, you don't have to officially be part of the troupe if you just want to learn the routines, and you don't have to perform. It can just be something you do for yourself and take like any of our 4-week series.

HOW DO I REGISTER?
Sign up as a regular series class HERE: Or by Venmo (Rusty-Frank-1), Zelle (rusty@rustyfrank.com)

WHAT IS A SERIES?

Level 1, Thursdays 7-8pm, January 10, 17, 24, 31.
We always offer 6 different choices in a 4-week series (see above, Class Levels & Times).

WHAT IS IN THE NEXT SERIES?
See what we have in store for our classes in this 4-week series HERE .

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.
