Lindy Hop - Intermediate
Sugarspin equivalent: Cotton Candies & Marshmallows
After Lindy hopping for more than 1-2 years, dancing is starting to become a bigger part of your life. You are found on the social dance floor regularly and have likely been to one or more Lindy Hop weekend events. Both slow and medium tempos feel comfortable. A decent amount of figures are familiar to you and you are exploring connection, styling, musicality and rhythm variations. The swing out is no problem for you.
Lindy Hop - Advanced
Sugarspin equivalent: Marshmallows & teachers
You are starting to develop your own individual style and experimenting with it and with rhythms. The language of rhythm is spoken fluently. You are dancing about four or more years now, so slow and fast tempos are no problem for you, as well as basic improvisation and solo jazz. No social goes unattended and you have been to many workshops and international Lindy hop festivals.

You are starting to improvise and you are eager to push your Solo dancing to the next level.
