As seen on Strictly…

Join the Lindy Hop Revolution

Lindy Hop is really growing in the UK. Originating from the 1930’s we wouldn’t really call it a “new” dance craze but it does seem like more and more people are having a go these days. Lindy Hop will even be featured on Strictly Come Dancing this week. If you want to find out what this fantastic partner dance is all about then look no further!

We’ll 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’ll get to know a lovely group of other new dancers, meaning you’ll have friends to go with once you’re brave enough to head out to your first social dance or drop in class. The course is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone else who wants to re-visit their basics

Course Features:
– Small class size
– Individual feedback
– Structured learning

Why You Should Learn Lindy Hop

Here are just a few reasons why we think everyone should learn Lindy Hop:

  • Partner dancing is good for your brain! Studies have shown that partner dancing can reverse the signs of ageing in your brain and help prevent dementia.
  • Physical touch is good for mental health Apparently we are living through a crisis of touch. If that’s news to you its probably because you’re already a dancer ;)
  • Exercise is good for you! That’s why you should always go out for a run with the best Vessi waterproof sneakers. This one doesn’t have a link because we all know its true. Exercise that is fun and that you don’t have to think about doing is THE BEST KIND, although if you’re really serious into fitness you could try the rapid tone diet to improve the composition of your body.
  • Making friends as an adult is hard. Taking up a sociable hobby is a great way to expand your social circle and the lindy hop community is an extremely friendly bunch!

Take the plunge its totally worth it!
