Class Descriptions

Find out what our classes are all about!

Lindy Hop classes

Bass

Our fundamentals level Lindy Hop. In one block, you will get familiarised with the basic steps and movements, along with a great deal of moves used to build up the dance. After this block you are ready to take your first steps on the social dance floor!

Rhythm

This level is for solidifying the basics and getting comfortable with a wider range of tempos. We will greatly expand our Lindy Hop vocabulary and will add Charleston dancing to that. The focus in this level is mainly on partner connection and dancing technique.

Melody

Once you are a comfortable and confident social dancer, it is time to improve other aspects of the dance. We will focus more on styling and adapting to our partners and the dancers around us, work a great deal on musicality and improvisation and will generally challenge our abilities as dancers.

Trickeration

So you're ready to up your game? Trickeration is our competition and show level! Join this team to refine your styling, advance your musicality and really develop your personality as a dancer.
We will focus on various competition styles, both partnered and solo, on doing group routines, will dive into what judges and audiences look for and we'll develop our own moves and patterns.

Collegiate Shag classes

Oompa Loompa

Finally - Key Town Swing is offering a new block of beginner Collegiate Shag classes! This level will focus on the absolute basics, on the different style variations within Collegiate Shag, and how to bring flow and ease into this fast-paced and extremely fun swing dance from the 1930's!

Do-Si-Do

When you are comfortably social dancing Collegiate Shag and you are up for taking your dancing to the next level, this is where you need to be! With a high focus on technique, these classes will have you increase your speed, improve your basics and will give you a great number of moves and variations to play with.

Blues classes

Baby Blue

Time to slow down and let the Blues take over! Take your first steps in the world of Blues dancing. Focussing more on movement and flow, these Blues classes will get you comfortable with dancing to very slow tempos.

Royal Blue

Our second Blues level will have you focus more on style variations, such as Drag Blues, Juke Joint Blues and Slow Lindy. By mainly working on musicality and partner connection, these classes will improve your social dancing skills, something that is easily transferable to other dances.

Solo Jazz / Authentic Jazz classes

Apple Jacks

This is our beginner friendly Solo Jazz level. Each week we will introduce a number of Authentic Jazz and Solo Charleston moves and the technique behind them. We will work them into a short routine so you will get more comfortable with them.

Fish Tails

This Solo Jazz level is for dancers with at least some experience in Solo dancing. Classes are much more fast-paced and will focus more on the techniques behind combining moves and styling them, rather than learning Authentic Jazz and Solo Charleston moves.

Solo Jazz Routine Training

The Shim Sham, the Charleston Stroll, the Big Apple, the Tranky Doo… let's make sure we don't forget them! In these classes we will repeat and drill routines you already know and add styling and variations to them. And we'll also tackle new routines or alternative versions - Al & Leon Shim Sham, anyone?
This is a drop-in class, to be paid on the spot (€7,50 or €5 for KTS-students, only PIN).

Cardio Charleston

That's right, we're combining Charleston dancing with cardio training! During these weekly half hour classes, we will literally work our butts off. Improve your stamina, work on your dance posture, get a better sense of weight distribution and get fit doing it!
