Lindy Hop Fundamentals
Find Your Groove
Day & Time: Wednesday, 18:30 – 19:30
Dates: 10.01.2024 – 14.02.2024
We’re now ready to dig deeper into classic Lindy Hop. You’ll learn how to dance some of the most beloved classic moves, popularised by the legendary Frankie Manning. You’ll also learn fundamentals of leading and following turns in swing dancing, and dig deeper into swing music and how you can draw inspiration from it for your dancing.
Each of these moves will come with its own fun variations, but this checklist shows the fundamental moves you’ll learn in the class. Once you know these, you’re ready to move on to the next level.
- face-to-face: promenade; slingshot with turn
- opening up: sendout with redirection; follower’s and leader’s underarm turn, left-side pass
- musicality: dancing to swing melody and phrasing
Lindy Hop Fundamentals is a natural progression from the Lindy Hop Starter Kit, or several Beginner Drop-Ins, and you'll continue developing things you started there. If you’ve taken beginner courses elsewhere, this might be a great place for you to start with us; if you're not sure, just email us at [email protected].

All Info at Once
Here’s where Lindy Hop Fundamentals takes place:
SwingStation Kurfürsten-Anlage 58
The entrance is on the eastern side of the building, reachable from the Kurfürsten-Anlage itself or from the Kirchstraße. Our studio is on the ground floor, at the end of the hall.
Public Transportation: many busses, streetcars, trains; stops “Hauptbahnhof” or “Stadtwerke”.
Parking: please do not park in the yard, the parking spaces don’t belong to us and you might get a ticket. It’s hard to find parking spots in our area, so you should plan in some extra time. You can try to find street parking in the Kirchstraße or Vangerowstraße, or you might need to go to a nearby Parkhaus (e.g. P1 in the Poststraße) and walk from there.
