Swingout Course – 7th February

If you’re feeling confident with your Lindy Hop fundamentals, a swingout is the next move you’ll want to conquer!

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

Swingout Course
Wednesday, 7th-28th February
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.

Appropriate for those who have learnt a swingout 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 swingout, but have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of Lindy hop  – this is the next step for you.Shillouette Swingout
