Tucks and Turns
Put Your Own Spin on It
Day & Time: Thursday, 19:45 – 20:45
Dates: 11.01.2024 – 15.02.2024
Turns and spins are so much fun! In this course you'll learn techniques to dance them in rhythm with a partner and you'll expand your repertoire to include all sorts of fun variations.
The exact moves and concepts of the course will vary, based on what teachers value and think is best for you and the other students in class. Here are some common examples of what we do:
- Charleston: tuck turn closed-to-open, tuck turn open-to-open; sailor steps
- Lindy Hop: tuck turn closed-to-open; redirections and variations
- Mixing: combining Lindy Hop and Charleston within your dancing
You’re comfortable with Triple Steps, and probably have done a little bit of Charleston too. You should be comfortable with a few steps in closed, as well as open position (passbys, sendouts, take-ins).

All Info at Once
Here’s where Tucks and Turns 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.
