New to swing dancing? You’ll definitely want to spend some time on what is probably the most quintessential lindy hop 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, 24 October – 14 November 2018
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’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!).
Get these dates in your diary because we are excited to announce a series of Thursday night classes on the Tranky Doo, 6th, 13th and 20th September! The Tranky Doo is a classic vintage jazz solo routine from the 1940s. For some interesting factoids about the history of the routine and clips of a variety of performances of it go here.
We wanted to feature this little video because this simple class recap has long been the most popular video on our Youtube Channel. Dancers around the world are still finding it really useful for learning this great classic routine. Here’s your chance to learn this fabulous routine from Rob IRL (in real life) over the course of three weeks!
This will be offered as a short course of 3 classes. If you haven’t done much solo jazz before don’t worry–book on for all 3 classes and we’ll go at an easy pace with lots of repetition. If you’ve learnt the Tranky Doo before and want a quick refresher feel free to just drop-in for one or two classes.
Thursdays, 6th, 13th & 20th Sept 2018
at Dance Studio Leeds
Cost: £15 for all 3 classes (pre-booking required)
or drop-in for £7 per class
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.
Wednesdays, 26th Sept – 17th Oct
at Dance Studio Leeds
cost: £30 for the 4wk course
£10 discount if you’ve taken a previous Classic Moves Course (inc Frankie’s Moves)
