Learn the iconic and dance defining move “The Swingout!”. So essential for any Lindyhopper we’ve got a full 4 week course just for this one move
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.
Everything is better with music! Learn how to make simple changes for big effects so that all your dances feel unique to the music.
The course will focus on core Tandem Charleston entries, exits and fun things to do while you’re there. No prior knowledge of tandem Charleston required but 30s / side by side Charleston basic is necessary.
The California Routine is a classic lindy hop routine, which draws on all of the fundamentals of lindy hop, including 6 beat, 8 beat and charleston footwork. It includes some small lifts and is often used as a performance routine.
Learn how to dance Balboa with this beginner friendly course! Balboa is a dance in the swing family, and is related to Lindy Hop. Typically danced faster but actually a lot less energetic. People enjoy this dance for being able to dance all night whatever the tempo.
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.
Learn to social dance solo charleston in Rob’s style of Jam Circles. They’re great fun and a confidence boost. This course is open to everyone who knows the basic charleston step, from beginners to experts. Having a mix of abilities will only make the jam circles better and you’ll learn more from it.
