Swingout Course – 5th July

Swingouts are the quintessential move of Lindy Hop, so we’ve dedicated an entire four week course to teaching them.

Swingout Course
Wednesday, 5th – 26th July
8:30 – 9:30pm at The Dance Studio Leeds
£30 whole course

The course will go over the basic shape of a swingout and progress to more in depth technique and a couple of variations to spice things up a bit. As usual with our courses numbers will be limited so we can give you personal feedback on what you need to make your swingout awesome.

Appropriate for those who have learnt a swing out shape and want to improve on their technique and learn a variation or two. This course is also for people who’ve never learnt a swing out, but have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of Lindy hop  – this is the next step for you.Shillouette Swingout
