Lindy Hop

Starter track

By all our teacher couples

Started taking swing dancing classes recently? Or maybe you’ve already caught the jitterbug, and have started dancing at socials, but you feel like learning more. Are you comfortable dancing some 6 and 8 count moves, but still find dancing swing outs and improvising at social dances challenging? Well, then we have just the track for you!

You’ll learn from the best: we’ve invited three couples of inspiring Lindy Hop teachers, who will each give you a two hour class, for 6 hours of Lindy Hop classes. There’s also something to choose, there’s one specialty class, where you can choose what else you would like to learn.

Open track

By all our teacher couples

This is our main track, the level is open for anyone who’s at least comfortable dancing swingouts and who already has a pretty broad vocabulary of Lindy moves. To give an indication: circles, tandem charleston, some footwork variations, musicality and dancing at different tempos should sound familiar to you. The track is open to a broad range of levels, so we will try to make it interesting for people who just fit the requirements as well as advanced dancers. We will make sure there is a mix of conceptual and moves-based classes. For lesser experienced dancers this track will give much new material for the dancefloor, advanced dancers will have the opportunity to challenge themselves creatively and to hone their skills.

Specialty classes

Available for both tracks

Besides 6 hours of Lindy hop classes, you can choose a 1 hour specialty class. These classes are themed to challenge and inspire you to shake up your dancing and broaden your understanding of black culture as a whole. Dance plays an important rule in cultures that are rooted in African traditions, so by diving into other dances from these cultures, you might find that spark which will light a fire in your own dancing.
