Course Descriptions

Lindy 1
For levels Lindy 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.

 

Lindy 2
After your basic skills learned in Level 1, it is time to step it up! We will work on strengthening the basic skills and variations you learned in Level 1. Gradually we use these to work on your (own) styling and technique, while of course also adding some new variations and some solo work to improve your body posture and awareness, balance and skills. During your recent Lindy life, you also experienced some social dances by now. But how do you survive very fast or slow music? And can you have an amazing dance when you forgot all your learned steps? But the red line in this course will always be: why do you move as you move and why does your partner follow as they follow? Our focus is mostly not on the variations themselves but where the movement comes from, and where you can go with it.

 

Lindy 3 & 4
For 6 lessons there’ll be different guest teachers each time: Dolinde & Praveen, Hakon & Sanne, Yara Kruis (Solo-Jazz), Erik & Leonie, Andrew & Sarah and Jojanneke & Roberto. The 5 lessons that follow after a ‘guest teacher lesson’ are free training sessions where you can practise what you’ve learned from the teachers the previous week. (week 1: guest teacher lesson –  week 2: free training session – week 3: guest teacher lesson – week 4: free training session – etc.)

 

Collegiate Shag
Depending on the registrations this either will be a beginners class or a beginners+ class. No experience is needed. Either way, we are going to put in some different moves than last block! More information about Collegiate Shag you’ll find here.

 

Theme Lessons (level 2 and above)
Topics:
  1. Soft connection and relaxed dancing. Allows changes in dynamics according to music. Allows balanced communication between partners. Leads to actually dancing with each other, not finishing choreographed moves. For slow and fast music. Less tiring during long dancing nights.
  2. Listen to what the follower has to say. More freedom and independence for the follower to breakaway or inspire the leader through clear difference in dynamics by using rhythm variations or classic jazz steps. Challenging for both, leaders and followers! For dancers who are confident in their own moves and steps.
  3. Create your own dancing identity. We will embrace individual styling and help to create moves rather than copy movements from others. For dancers who are confident in their own moves and steps and have a profound repertoire of moves.
  4. Spins & Turns. Learn a technique of controlled spinning as well as moves for followers and leaders. Start including the general concept of spins/turns into your social dancing while becoming less dizzy.
