Swing Out And Around
Savoys and Over-Rotations

Day & Time: Wednesday, 21:00 – 22:00

Dates: 10.01.2024 – 14.02.2024

The Swing Out is THE must-have move for every Lindy Hopper. This is why we don't just learn it once, but come back to it many times, looking at it in different ways, creating new options, and refining our abilities.

This course is for dancers who already know the swing out really well, and is designed to improve your control and give you challenging and classic variations.

How do I change the direction of the swing out? How do I change the amount of rotation? How can I vary the “wow” effect of this move or play with the dynamics? If you want concrete answers to these and other questions, join the class for awesome and classic swing out variations that will make you shine on the dance floor.

You'll work on two very different swing out dynamics: the savoy swing out (walking out forward for followers), and the over-rotated swing out. You will learn to:

  • Control your movements through different moments of the swing out
  • Play with positions and dynamics to add excitement
  • Use swivels for followers and anchoring for leaders: how to style your savoy and over-rotated swing outs

You should be very comfortable with swing outs before you take this course. For instance: if you've taken our "Swing Outs & Swivels" course, you've trained swing outs in our Lifelong Learning classes or at workshops, and you do swing outs often in your social dancing, then this course is for you.

Your swing out skills are:

  • You have a steady rhythm in your swing out.
  • You understand the move well, you know which foot you should be on at any time.
  • Swivels! Dancing them (for followers), supporting them (for leaders) is an everyday part of your swing out.
  • You can dance swing outs comfortably with many different partners.

If you are not sure how to decide, don’t hesitate to ask us 🙂

Here’s where Swing Out And Around takes place:

SwingStation Kurfürsten-Anlage 58
69115 Heidelberg

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.
