Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your classes?

  • Classes are taught at the FOE Eagles #38 at 24th and Douglas.

I missed the first class; can I still join? 

  • Usually, if you miss the first class, you can catch on ok if you join during the second class. After that, it’s more difficult to catch up, so check with the teachers for this information.

Are kids/children allowed?

  • We offer Junior Jitterbugs for kids in grades 5-9 and Itsy Bitsy Jitterbugs for kids ages 4-8. Adult classes are best for high school age and up.

Do you have a group discount?

Do I need a partner?

  • No. Most students arrive solo and you will be partnered up during class and rotate partners often.

How do I get the most out of my classes?

  • Show up (that’s usually the hardest part!), relax, ask questions, and have fun.  Try to practice between classes if you can.

What music should I use to practice?

  • Listen to the “Lindy in the Park 2017 — Omaha Jitterbugs” playlist on Spotify.  You can create a free account.

What’s the cancellation policy? 

How do I know what class to take?

  • If you have no social dance experience, start with a class that has Intro or Beginning in the title.  Or Contact jitterbugs@jitterbugs.org to explain your situation and we can guide you through.
