This fortnight’s variation is Dramatic Stomp
We all crave a bit of drama from time to time
Inspired by Katie Stotter, general badass!
It seems like every few weeks a new article is published with scientific studies demonstrating various health benefits of dancing. The latest article making the rounds states “researchers interviewed 1,000 people and found that often those who were dancing not only reported feeling happier, but also more satisfied with their lives, especially in relationships, health, and the goals achieved over the years.”
Dancing is great for your physical and mental health, can ward off dementia, and improve your quality of life. We’ve collected a few more articles on the benefits of dancing here. If you’ve never tried “proper” dancing don’t worry–the need to dance seems to be in our DNA! With just a bit of guidance you’ll be on your way to a healthier, happier life (according to science!).
Our Fundamentals 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 will meet a lovely group of people, so you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class. It is appropriate for absolute beginners and anyone else who wants to re-visit their basics in a structured learning environment. We run these courses regularly–the next one starts end of August.

Summer is the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Our Lindy Hop Fundamentals Course is a great way to have a go at learning swing dancing in a low pressure environment. We’ll take you through the basics in a small class with other beginners just like you. After four weeks you’ll have the skills and confidence to have a little boogie next time you pass a band on the street or to wow your friends at weddings.
We cover the basics of Lindy Hop over the course of four weeks. Each week builds on the last with plenty of time for review and repetition to give you a solid foundation in basic moves and techniques. We often have people in class who’ve never tired partner dancing before–so if this is you don’t worry. Our small class sizes help you get to know a lovely group of people so that you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class. The course is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone who wants to brush up on their basics.
