Swing Outs & Swivels
The Iconic Move of Lindy Hop
Day & Time: Monday, 21:00 – 22:00
Dates: 22.05.2023 – 26.06.2023
The amazing dancer Al Minns once was asked what Lindy Hop is; he said, “It’s when you send the girl out and then she does the twist”. In this course we’ll do just that - except that anyone can be a follower and do the twist! Starting with the classic Lindy circle and into a basic version of the swing out, we’ll of course also add fancy variations. As a leader you'll learn how to position yourself to support your follower in more complex movements. And as a follower you'll learn the classic swivel, to decorate your dancing with beautiful hip twists.
Each of these moves will come with its own fun variations, but this list shows the fundamental moves you’ll learn in the class.
- lindy circle
- swing out
- swivels and switches
You’re very comfortable with Triple-Step based moves in both closed and open positions.

All Info at Once
Here’s where Swing Outs & Swivels 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.
