The swingout is probably the most iconic lindy hop move but it’s not the easiest nut to crack. Ask any teacher when they perfected their swingout and most will tell you that they are still working on it. Whether you’ve just begun your lindy journey or have been taking classes for a few months we’ll help you get your swingout on track with lots of tips on both technique and styling.
Wednesday, 6th-27th February
8:30 – 9:30pm at The Dance Studio Leeds
£32 whole course
No partner required but pre-booking is essential. To book your place email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our webform
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’s also a great course for those who have had a go at swingouts but want to delve a bit deeper and really work on improving their technique, learn to dance faster and add some styling (swivels!).
The 20’s are nearly upon us again and Peaky Blinders parties seem to be all the rage lately! Learn how to dance the Charleston with a partner just like they did back in the day. Bookings are now open for this beginner friendly course starting this January. Its likely to sell out quickly so get in touch to book your place now!
