FAQs

* Who is this for?
Video content will be suitable for swing dancers at an experienced beginner or intermediate level. Some topics (Balboa, Shag, Peabody, Tap) will start from scratch, but the lindy hop content will assume a basic knowledge of 6-beat, 8-beat and charleston rhythms.


* What do I need?
To access the videos, you will need a device such as a computer, laptop, iPad, smart phone. You will need a suitable internet connection, and use a recommended browser (a recent version of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.)
To get the most out of the learning available, you will want sufficient clear space to dance, and footwear appropriate to dance safely (doing swivels in grippy shoes is risky, dancing fast in socks can be dangerous!)
As always, avoid these activities if you have, or suspect you may have any current health concerns, injuries, aches, pains etc.


* Can I view the videos offline?
No, you will need to stream them on an internet-connected device. Videos cannot be downloaded.


* Do I need to download an app?
No, video playback works on all devices, it does not require an app.


* Can I watch from outside of Australia?
Yes, the online video platform, Uscreen, uses servers from all over the world so that viewers can access videos from all over the world.


* Refunds
Subscriptions can be cancelled online at any time, after which no further payments will be taken. However, there is typically no refund available on a subscription payment that has already been made.
