Lindy Hop is an fun partner dance that is said to have been invented in The Savoy Ballroom, Harlem, New York, in the 1920's and 1930's. It’s danced to Swing music from Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Artie Shaw and Duke Ellington to name a few!! It was the American GI soldiers who bought Lindy Hop to Britain in the early 194o’s. It’s fun its cool and you get fit at the same time. We teach the ‘Savoy’ style of Lindy made famous by the King of Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning. This is the authentic original and best style.
7pm - Beginners Level - This is for complete novices, we will teach the basics step by step building on the fundamentals each week. We explain about lead & follow and how to feel the music.
8pm - Intermediate Level - This class is for dancers who already have some experience in dancing Lindy Hop. An understanding of 6 and 8 count rhythms, triple steps and Lindy Hop fundamentals such as Lindy Turns, Lindy Circles and Swing Outs are essential for participation in this class. We will build on core moves and add some tricks, footwork variations and Charleston steps and ways to improve your musicality to elevate your dancing to another level.
Wear smooth soled flat shoes and comfy clothes. No partner required as we will rotate the class, you can stay with your partner if you prefer. With Jim & Sarah
