WHAT IS THIS COURSE ABOUT?
Want to learn to swing dance from scratch? This is the course for you! No experience needed.
Learn the original swing dance from the 1930s and 1940s, called the Lindy Hop! It's a partner dance that is upbeat, social and a lot of fun! Lindy Hop was born in New York in the late 1920s and became a worldwide dance craze during the swing era. It's having a huge revival around the world now, and London is one of the best cities in the world to dance it in! Swing dancing is done to big band swing music, it's irresistably toe-tapping!
Over 12 weeks you will learn the most important footwork patterns and classic dance moves of the Lindy Hop. In this unique course you will learn both roles of the dance - how to be the leader and the follower! You will also learn about the history of swing dancing and the wonderful swing & jazz music it is danced to.
Our teaching style is friendly and fun. We will give you lots of bonus resources throughout the course, including practice videos, music playlists to practice to, handouts with information, and emails with links to inspire you!
DO I NEED A PARTNER?
You don't need to bring a partner to this course. You will rotate partners in class, dancing with both men and women - a great way to make friends!
This course is for absolute beginners, no experienced needed.
