This fortnight’s variation is Rhythmic Stomps!
We’ve called them “stomps” but this variation is far from clunky–you’ll need to be light on your feet to get this rhythm
Inspired by Gustav and Laia
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 the Christmas party .
We will teach you the basics of Lindy Hop in just one 4-week course! This course will give you a solid foundation in fundamental lindy hop moves and techniques, ideal for people who’ve never danced before. With small class sizes you will meet a lovely group of people, meaning you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class. It is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone else who wants to re-visit their basics

New to swing dancing? You’ll definitely want to spend some time on what is probably the most quintessential lindy hop 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!
Wednesday, 24 October – 14 November 2018
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, styling, 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.
This course is a good follow on from our Fundamentals Course for those who are feeling confident with the basics. It’s also a great course for those who have had a go at swingouts but want to delve a bit deeper and really work on improving their technique, learn to dance faster and add some styling (swivels!).
Get these dates in your diary because we are excited to announce a series of Thursday night classes on the Tranky Doo, 6th, 13th and 20th September! The Tranky Doo is a classic vintage jazz solo routine from the 1940s. For some interesting factoids about the history of the routine and clips of a variety of performances of it go here.
We wanted to feature this little video because this simple class recap has long been the most popular video on our Youtube Channel. Dancers around the world are still finding it really useful for learning this great classic routine. Here’s your chance to learn this fabulous routine from Rob IRL (in real life) over the course of three weeks!
This will be offered as a short course of 3 classes. If you haven’t done much solo jazz before don’t worry–book on for all 3 classes and we’ll go at an easy pace with lots of repetition. If you’ve learnt the Tranky Doo before and want a quick refresher feel free to just drop-in for one or two classes.
