BOOST

A Lindy Hop workshop in Heidelberg

Tired of going to workshops where you take tons of classes, but at the end you can’t remember half of what you learned?  Want more power to drive toward your own learning goals?

What’s unique about Boost is that after each class you get to dig deeper, and you can choose what elements to focus on, for an in-depth individual training experience.

Here’s how you can boost your Lindy Hop in one weekend:


  • Why: inspiring classes combined with lots of time to practice and ask questions
  • What: 16 hours of intense training over one weekend
  • When: 26th – 27th September 2020
  • Where: Heidelberg, Germany
  • Teachers: will be announced soon
  • Levels: 2 levels – Intermediate, Advanced
  • Language: English
  • Price: 120 Euro for the full weekend

I’ve been to plenty of other workshops where I learned a lot and then forgot it all the following week! Boost was different. By providing so much guided practice time you not only get to build the muscle memory but can feel confident that you’re performing the move correctly! I would gladly trade an extra hour or two of taster classes that so many other workshops offer for this sort of practice time…it was simply invaluable! -Paul McCloud

The possibility to train what you learned in class directly afterwards, with people who just learned that exact same thing, just helped so much in not losing what was topic of the class and forget about half of it, but really taking something home I can implement in my dancing. -Sarah

Registration opens on February 4th 2020 at 17:00 (CET)

Your Weekend Schedule

The Boost schedule looks like this. As this is an unusual program, here comes a bit of explanation:

We start the event with two hours of regular class format. During this session, we will set up a topic and work on some fundamental concepts.

Whenever there is no class, we practice! There will be a teachers walking around to give individual feedback and help. At least one teacher will be available at any time between 10:00 – 18:00. However, how much of this time you want to spend for training is up to you; you choose when you want to take a break or when you want to stop for the day.

Level Descriptions

BOOST your Lindy Hop levels: 

  • Intermediate: You have been swing dancing for one year minimum, you are taking a weekly class and go social dancing occasionally. You are comfortable with the basics such as 8 count swing out, Lindy circle, 6 count basics and tuck turns, and side by side Charleston.
  • Advanced: You want to seriously geek out! You like fancy moves, but „Advanced basics“ is the thing you really want to work on more. Dancing is your life-style now and most of your vacation days are used for attending camps, events and workshops.

Guarantee and The way you'll learn

The Way You’ll Learn

Dancing is NOT easy! However, we have broken down Lindy Hop into its simplest building blocks. This is what we call the „SwingStep-by-Step“ system. Now, it’s easier than ever to learn how to dance with anyone you want, to any tempo of music, through our step-by-step process. The special benefit of this SwingStep workshop is that all the teachers are working with the SwingStep blueprint. No more contradictory explanations. No more unclear „just do it“ instructions. The concepts you’ll learn at this workshop have been tested all around Europe – and they work! In fact, we are so confident in what you are about to sign up for, that we removed all your risk by having a 100% money back guarantee. If you do not feel that you received the value you expected for your money, we’ll give you your money back!
