Feeling Tricky?

With so many awesome Lindy Hop moves to learn there are some that can fall through the cracks, some moves that are just a bit too tricky to really get to grips with in a drop-in class. That’s why we’ve come up with this addition to 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! Exactly which toe-tangling moves we tackle will depend on the group. In the past we’ve looked at Switches, Hacksaws, Texas Tommy and Sailor kicks. We’ll spend a good amount of time learning how to do these 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 and ideally be able to do a swingout

Footwork Variation of the Fortnight #90!

This fortnight’s variation is Skipping

For when you’re in a yippy skippy kinda mood!

This is a great one for newer dancers–noticeably different from your standard footwork but the rhythm and the shape are pretty low-stress.

Try Something New This Summer

Learn the Lindy Hop

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.

Course Details:
Wednesdays 31st July – 21st Aug 2019
6:30-7:30pm
at Dance Studio Leeds
Cost: £32 for the 4 week course

Pre-booking required to register email: swingdanceleeds@gmail.com
