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!).
Lindy Hop is really growing in the UK. Originating from the 1930’s we wouldn’t really call it a “new” dance craze but it does seem like more and more people are having a go these days. Lindy Hop will even be featured on Strictly Come Dancing this week. If you want to find out what this fantastic partner dance is all about then look no further!
We’ll teach you the basics of Lindy Hop in just one 4-week course! This 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’ll get to know a lovely group of other new dancers, meaning you’ll have friends to go with once you’re brave enough to head out to your first social dance or drop in class. The course is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone else who wants to re-visit their basics
