Course Descriptions

Level 1
For levels 1A to 1C, we make use of a fixed curriculum. This way you’ll learn all the basic moves and techniques of Lindy Hop, so you’ll have a solid base. In the chapter Class & Level info you’ll find more information.

 

Level 2 by Tobias & Yivii
In this Lindy 2 course, we will focus on strengthening basics and swing-outs in different tempo, and expanding basics by adding variations. This means we could also look into Charleston and other types of music and their overlaps with Lindy Hop.
The course will be designed based on both teachers’ opinions and class feedbacks, so don’t hesitate to tell us what you want to work on!

 

Level 2 by Maartje & Niek
Many of the classes in this course will start very basic, but we will be making these basics awesome. We bring a new light to things you already know, with foot variations, different endings, rhythm changes, musicality etc. Dancing is about having fun, so let’s play with that! Partner dancing is a way of communicating with each other. We’ll work on techniques to communicate clearer and make your own movements easier. Of course, plenty of completely new moves will come along.

You improve your dancing lindy hop and charleston in our classes:

  • Continue to strengthen the basics of your first year swing dancing
  • Learning by doing
  • Basics of the techniches of lead & following, body posture and weight changes intermingle with moves & combinations
  • Different tempo songs
  • Jazz routine as a warming up
  • A well balanced combination of technical stuff and fun moves

 

Solo jazz by Janna
Every 2 weeks we will work on a different choreo. The first class we will discuss which one we are going to do.We will start with a choreo made by ourselves. Technique and styling will be the subject in every class. For the more advanced dancers, we will dedicate some time to variations of the known moves that are often used instead of the basic steps.

 

Collegiate Shag by Siroon & Thom
During these 6 lessons we will start with the very basics of Shag and build on that with some cool moves you can use on the dancefloor. Experience in Lindy Hop might come in handy, but is certainly not required. Be prepared for some intense classes that will test your stamina, while there’s going to be a lot of fast kicking going on. Bringing a towel is advisable. More information about Collegiate Shag you’ll find here.
