The course will go over the basic shape of a swingout + circle. It is appropriate for people who have learnt an 8 count basic but never learnt a swing out. It is also appropriate for those who have learnt a swing out shape and want to improve on their technique and learn a variation or two. We require fixed partners in this course.

Frankie’s Moves Course

Frankie Manning (aka The Ambassador of Swing) had some great classic moves that we think all lindy hoppers should have in their repertoire! This course is aimed at dancers who are comfortable with the basics and looking for some new cool moves. We’ll spend a good amount of time on each move so that you can lead and follow them confidently on the social dance floor. We require fixed partners* in this course.
