So whether you’re going to a Great Gatsby party or a Big Band Swing Dance–we’ve got you covered! This is a great course for complete beginners or those who have done a bit of lindy hop and are looking for more moves to add to their repertoire.
A bit of trivia: Our Charleston dancers were actually featured in the first season of Peaky Blinders and we got to teach the Cillian Murphy and Annabelle Wallis how to dance!

Take a look at this to give you an idea about Partnered Charleston:
If you’ve been bitten by the lindy hop bug you’ll definitely want to spend some time on what is probably the most quintessential 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, 6th-27th June
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 is also appropriate for those who have learnt a swingout shape and want to improve on their technique, learn to dance faster and add some styling.
