SwingStep Hanse

This weekend goes under the motto: “Rhythm is King!”

  • Train the mechanics of rhythmical movement
  • Discover how to develop more rhythms
  • Easy or complex – but always clean rhythms
  • EXTRA: Musicality class with live music! We have invited the entire Elms-Horns Big Band to one of the classes to help us break down the music in such a way that we can understand each individual element.

As always, the SwingStep team will teach complex concepts in concrete and simple ways to ensure a great learning experience with lasting impact!

Level Descriptions

  • Level 2 – Intermediate: You have been swing dancing for 7–18 months, you are taking a weekly class and occasionally go social dancing. You are comfortable with the basics such as 8 count swing out, Lindy circle, 6 count basics and tuck turns as well as side by side Charleston.
  • Level 3 – Intermediate/Advanced:  You have been dancing regularly for 1.5-2 years, you quickly pick up new moves and concepts, you can lead and follow difficult patterns with ease.
  • Level 4 – 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!
