How to Nail Those Tricky Moves

With so many awesome Lindy Hop moves to learn there are some that can fall through the cracks–moves that are just a bit too tricky to really get in a drop-in class. That’s why we’re introducing another new course into our Classic Moves line up, focusing on Tricky Moves!

In this four week course we’ll teach you some great classic moves that are a bit on the tricky side but with four weeks to work on them you’ll totally nail them! We’ll be working on the Texas Tommy, Switches, Charleston Swingouts, Hacksaws and maybe more depending on the group. We’ll spend a good amount of time learning how to do these classic moves well so that you can lead/follow them with confidence on the social dance floor or in a jam circle.

You don’t need a partner to book but you will need a good grasp of Lindy Hop Fundamentals.

at Dance Studio Leeds
cost: £30 for the 4wk course

A new twist on a modern classic!

You can take inspiration for footwork variations from just about anywhere. Here’s one based on a dance move that some might remember from the 1960s (or the 80s).
