Lindy Hop Starter Kit
No Experience Needed!
Day & Time: Thursday, 18:30 – 19:30
Dates: 06.04.2023 – 18.05.2023 (no classes on 13.04.)
This is a great starting point to explore the joy that so many people get from Lindy Hop!
We will start with awesome swing music and movements that are as easy as walking. You’ll get clear guidance and support from our teachers. You’ll even be able to explore outside of the basic steps, play with ideas and create fun moments with your partner.
With the solid foundation you’ll learn in this course, you’ll be able to:
- Dance to almost any swing song
- Hit the dance floor with almost any lindy hopper
- Create great moments and memories with your dance partners
- Get a glimpse into the history and culture of the dance
- Be a part of a diverse, modern and growing community
Lindy Hop evolved out of many swing dances, such as the Charleston. We'll follow this natural evolution, and start with Charleston steps. From there, we'll expand into Lindy Hop. We’ll take you step-by-step through these basics of swing dancing:
- Foundations of rhythm and rhythmic movements
- Connection and communication in social dancing
- Closed and open position basics for Charleston and Lindy Hop
- Basic improvisation and creativity in dance
No, you don’t need any previous dance experience or equipment! Whether you’ve taken a few taster classes already, or have never danced before, this course is a great start.
“It’s fun and refreshing. Not as difficult as I thought.”
“SwingStep is very open minded. It’s not bad if you’re making mistakes.”
“I’m really shy around people, so I thought I might feel uncomfortable, but it’s been great! :)”
“At first I thought: can I even do this, how do I coordinate my steps? Today, I even dance secretly in the office.”
