This fortnight’s variation is Dad Dancing!
Watch as the amazing Helen takes “Dad dancing” to a new level!
This simple variation has the follower coming in on the three which is a great skill to practice!
If you’ve been bitten by the lindy hop bug you’ll definitely want to spend some time on what is probably the most quintessential move–the swingout. You’ll spend the rest of your lindy career trying to perfect this move, learning different styles and techniques and all the variations. Let us start you off on the right track!
Wednesdays, 29th May – 19th June
8:30 – 9:30pm at The Dance Studio Leeds
£32 whole course
The course will go over the basic shape of a swingout and progress to more in-depth technique, styling, and a couple of variations to spice things up. 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.
This course is a good follow on from our Fundamentals Course for those who are feeling confident with the basics. It is also appropriate for those who have learnt a swingout in a drop in class and want to improve on their technique, learn to dance faster and add some styling (swivels!).
Our Lindy Hop Fundamentals Course is by far our most popular course. It’s your gateway drug to the world of Swing Dancing! After just four weeks you’ll be able to join in with other Lindy Hoppers at a social dance or wow your friends at weddings.
We’ll teach you the basics of Lindy Hop in over the course of four weeks. Each week builds on the last with plenty of time for review and repetition to give you a solid foundation in basic moves and techniques. We often have people in class who’ve never tired partner dancing before–so if this is you don’t worry. Our small class sizes help you get to know a lovely group of people so that you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class. The course is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone who wants to brush up on their basics.

This course was a special addition to the lineup last year and definitely a keeper! We’ll spend the whole four weeks working on some of Frankie Manning’s signature moves.
Who was Frankie Manning? He was one of the greatest lindy hoppers of his time (he was the first to add air steps to the dance!). He was also hugely instrumental in the swing revival. As a young man he performed all over with Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, in his later years he traveled the world teaching at lindy hop events, large and small, nearly every weekend. He became known as the Ambassador of Swing and even got his own google doodle a couple of years ago. Come along and learn some of Frankie’s classic moves.
The Frankie’s Moves Course is appropriate for dancers who are comfortable with the basics and ready to add some new classic moves to their repertoire.
