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!

In this short crash course, you will learn how to groove and bounce to swing music as well as some easy rhythm variations and a few figures.

less talking and more danceing :)
07. Feb. 2024, 17:10 Solo Charleston with Luisa BarbantiRoom: UZH Zentrum, Untere Mensa
it's a really nice course to get to know the charleston! I've learned a bunch of cool steps and moves, which I can include in any kind of swing dance I think :)

The course was great even for beginner dancers. Luisa brought a lot of energy into it and her excitement was really contagious. All in all a lot of fun!

If you are looking for a fun and relaxed atmosphere while also getting a bit of workout, this is the right course. No experience in other dances needed either. Would definitely take again <3

Luisa is a great teacher. She breaks down the steps, which makes it easy to follow and fun to learn.

the cours adds perfect to the previous courses and you can learn some pretty cool advanced looking moves. I liked it a lot! I think that both Matej and Luisa did a great job, can recommend a lot :)

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 :)

Gut um erste Einblicke in Solo Charleston zu bekommen. Kurs auch geeignet bei keiner Tanzerfahrung.
14. June 2023, 21:23 Solo Charleston with Luisa BarbantiRoom: ETH Zentrum, CAB F21 (StuZ)
Easy basic steps to learn, many more difficult steps can be integrated. Charleston is a like a workout when you really put energy into it. Try it, it's fun and the steps are very forgiving.
12. June 2023, 13:36 Solo Jazz with Luisa BarbantiRoom: UZH Zentrum, GLT A-03
Lusia is a very enthusiastic and passionate solo jazz-teacher/dancer! Really great class to learn the basics and cool combinations out of them! May be a bit too easy if you have some experience in solo-jazz already:)
