Frankie’s Sixes | 4-week Beginner Block


24 Jul 2024


6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Observatory Community Centre
Rawson St, Observatory

This 4-week beginner course will have you ready to groove to swing jazz and to social dance at our next events. Learn the basic 6-count footwork pattern that is great for partnered dancing, and add a fun set of moves to your toolset. In the process, you’ll learn a fun little 6-count sequence originally shared by lindy hop legend Frankie Manning.

The complete Beginner series includes the following 4-week courses & workshops:

  • Lindy Hop FUNdamentals
  • Frankie’s Sixes
  • Swing Out Foundations
  • Charleston Essentials

Once you’re well-versed in the basics of Lindy Hop, which includes content from all these courses, you’ll be invited to take Improver-level classes/workshops at any of our locations. These Beginner courses will be repeated periodically (also as weekend workshops), providing more flexibility on how you’d like to complete them as a whole.

No need to bring a partner: we rotate partners in class. Anyone can lead or follow – roles are not gendered.

COST: R130 per person drop-in (pay on arrival with card, SnapScan or cash) or R450 for all 4 classes in the course. CTS Members get unlimited classes (at their level). More info on our Pricing page.

PLEASE NOTE: You may join the first class on 3 July, thereafter it’s closed to first-timers.
