Lindy Hop / Charleston classes

Bass

Our fundamentals level Lindy Hop, this block focussing on Charleston. 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 Charleston on the social dance floor!

Rhythm

This level is for solidifying the Charleston 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.

Melody

Once you are a comfortable and confident 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!

Collegiate Shag classes

Oompa Loompa

This is the continuation block of beginner Collegiate Shag classes! So this level is NOT for absolute beginners, we do expect you to have some knowledge of the basics, for instance by having done a course or a few workshops already. This level will focus on the 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!
