Description

Lindy hop is a swing dance originally danced by African-Americans in New York in the 1930s and 40s. In the past few decades, it is experiencing a surge in popularity, with dancers' communities all over the world. Read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindy_Hop

Lindy hop is...

  • Lindy hop is a couple dance - it is danced in pairs of one leader and one follower.
  • Lindy hop is a social dance - any leader can dance with any follower, even if they never met before. And every dance can be a new experience, very different from the other ones. This is why we change partners in class as well.
  • Lindy hop is an improvized dance - while choreographies do exist (mostly for performances), the vast majority of the time the the dancers (both the leader and the follower) are creating the dance on the fly, expressing what they hear in the music at the moment.
  • Lindy hop is an inclusive dance - everybody dances it - no matter the gender, the age, the physical strength, ...
  • Lindy hop is a fun dance - it is danced for the pleasure of the dancers - the first priority is for the dancers to have fun. Being great to look at is just a nice side effect 🙂
  • Lindy hop is a silly dance - many moves are silly on purpose - that's what makes it even more fun!
  • Lindy hop is a sporty dance - when the music gets fast, you better have many spare t-shirts.

The teachers are looking forward to sharing all that fun with you!

Lindy 3 is based on our Lindy 1 and Lindy 2 classes. This means, you need prior Lindy Hop experience to be part of this class! For the ones who went to other schools: Basic 8 count and 6 count moves should be familiar to you (or at least not new ;) ...such as Promenades, Swing outs, circles, 6 count change of place.... In Lindy 3 we begin with Charleston and its many variations but also go with faster Lindy music and of course fun moves such as the mini dip, inside and outside turns and many more.

Ich mochte den Kurs sehr! Matej und Luisa sind super sympathisch und mir gefiel der Schwerpunkt auf Charleston und dass wir damit eine ganz neue Seite von Lindyhop kennengelernt haben. Nach dem Tanzkurs habe ich immer so gute Laune :)

Suzanne and Matej did a great job at introducing us to Lindy Hop. The energy they brought to the class was always fun and uplifting, just like Lindy Hop itself.

Teo und Matej kreiieren eine sehr positive Stimmung, die dazu ermutert nachzufragen und Dinge auszuprobieren. Kann es nur empfehlen.
