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 of Lindy Hop 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 vocabulary in this level, while mainly focussing on partner connection and strengthening our dancing technique.
Next to Lindy Hop, you will also be introduced to the Charleston, which is an integral part of our dancing.

Melody

Once you are a comfortable and confident Lindy Hop and Charleston 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. If you have had classes with us for longer, don't worry - we'll definitely throw in new material!
