Day & Time: Wednesday, 21:00 – 22:00
Dates: 05.04.2023 – 17.05.2023 (no classes on 12.04.)
The goal of this course is to keep moving your Lindy Hop forward, while always returning to strong fundamentals. The content will vary based on the teachers' choice and be adapted to your group’s needs as you develop. What makes the Lifelong Learning course different from our other courses is that it's not based on learning (or reviewing) a specific topic; it’s a group to stay with and train with over time.
The content varies; example topics are:
- Fancy turns and variations
- Geeky exercises to improve your rhythm, connection, and quality of movement
- Music: finding a deeper appreciation, and connecting your dancing more
- Developing your personal style
- Fast dancing
- Classic routines and combos
In order to join a Lifelong Learning class you should have a solid Lindy Hop foundation. Because the course covers a huge range of topics, different skills will be needed at different times. Overall here are our recommendations:
- Moves: you should be comfortable social dancing classics like Swing Outs, Tuck Turns, open position passbys, at a variety of tempos.
- Rhythm: you should be able to easily dance both triple steps and kick steps, and feel comfortable choosing between them in your social dancing.
- Music: you should be familiar with, and have an appreciation for, dancing to swing music; your dancing reflects the music you hear.
One way of making sure that you have these skills covered is to first take our other core courses:
- Lindy Hop Starter Kit (former Swing 1)
- Lindy Hop Fundamentals (former Swing 2)
- Tucks and Turns (former Swing 3)
- Swing Outs & Swivels (former Swing 4)
- Charleston Classics (former Swing 5)
- Sugar Pushes, Charleston Swing Outs (former Swing 6)
If you augment these courses with some Solo classes, as well as lots of practice and social dancing, you'll definitely have everything you need to be able to handle the challenges of this course.
Of course, we don't want to insist that you must get all your Lindy Hop knowledge from us! You might have picked up your skills elsewhere, which is absolutely fine too.
And, if you're not sure whether the course is right for you, don’t hesitate to ask us 🙂
