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!

WHAT IS A SERIES?
A Series is a 4-week period of time during which several Classes are offered.
WHAT IS A CLASS?
A Class consists of 4 one-hour Lessons (one each week during a Series) on a single topic.
Example: Our Beginner / Level 1 Class at 7pm on Thursdays starting Oct 21.
WHAT IS IN THE NEXT SERIES?
Click on the "Next Series" green button above to see what we have in store.
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 CLASS AT A TIME?
Yes! As a matter of fact you get BIG 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. The price is $20 for a single one-hour lesson. But we do ask that you don't drop in for the 3rd or 4th weeks in a 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 passes are only valid for classes in a single 4-week series.
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 all follow a well-thought out curriculum, and are extremely upbeat and fun.
Take some classic Swingout and Charleston variations. Sprinkle in a little Boogie movement (hello Tranky Doo) and you've got our HOLIDAY HOP. We've been invited to dance again in the El Segundo Holiday Parade (on Saturday, December 12th) and we thought why not fill two stockings with the same candy cane. Learn classic Lindy moves and practice them in a super easy choreography that we can dance at the parade. Participation in the parade is optional, of course, but BOY are we gonna have a lot of holiday fun!
DO YOU DO THE TRANKY DOO? This classic non-partnered routine (along with the Shim Sham and the Big Apple) completes the vintage jazz routine trifecta. It features heaps of Lindy Hop Boogie steps, many of which you likely already know. Best of all, this class is fun for all levels (beginner to advanced dancers) and it's a great workout. Missed the first Tranky Doo class? No problem! You'll have plenty of opportunity to catch up. This will be our FINAL series teaching The Tranky Doo so don't miss your last chance to learn this wonderful routine.
