Classes:

For every level there will be 4 classes of 75 minutes each, either two classes on Saturday and two on Sunday, or 3 on Saturday and one on Sunday. Every track will have a double class with one teacher couple and two single classes with the 2 other couples.

Since we want to give you the best possible learning experience with a good dose of teachers’ attention for everybody, there will be a range of 5 up to maximum 15 couples per track.

Tasters

We will have 6 tasters on Friday evening (you can choose maximum 3) and 4 on Saturday evening (you can choose maximum 2). All tasters will last 60 minutes each.

In our 4th edition we want to offer you a couple of other swing dances to try out or, if you already dance other styles, to learn some new material, beside the traditional taster classes with different topics.

The tasters are open for all levels and you can come without a partner. If you find a taster class full already, please choose another one. We might have a lead or follow surplus, but we will rotate a lot to cope with it.

Lindy Hop Taster topics (subject of change without further notice):

“Jam style dancing – Stealing” (Cat and Cam: There is a birthday jam happening and you always wanted to jump in, but never know how to elegantly steal your partner? This is the place to learn different techniques!)

Slow Lindy” (Cat and Cam: In this class we explore the possibilities given to us by slower music, and learn some smooth moves.)

Fast Lindy – fast swing outs” (Elle and Martí : in this class we learn how to stay relaxed and easy when the music turns faster, and especially how to dance fast swing outs.)

“Pimp your Charleston” (Eve and Tobi: You know the partnered Charleston basics, but it’s a bit boring to always do the three moves you know? Here comes some easy material to make dancing partnered Charleston fun!)

“How do dance in crowded spaces” (Tobi: Sometimes many people are out on the dance floor, and it is hard to be in the music, creative, attentive to your partner AND attentive to all the couples around you, dancing like crazy. We learn how to dance protective (to ourselfes and to our partners, as well to the peeps around us), so that nobody get injured by kicks and steps, and still keep the flow and the fun! This taster gives both leaders and followers tools how to dance responsible and protective.)

Follower Technique” (Elle: Footwork and Styling for followers; male and female dancers are equally welcome, you only need to dance the follower’s role)
