Lindy hop dance classes are the perfect way to meet new people, listen to some great swing music and build confidence on the dance floor.
We all have to start somewhere and the Beginners class is the perfect place! No partner needed. Graeme and Amanda make these classes fun and relaxed. By the end of just one lesson you will be able to pull out a couple of moves. But if you want to be the envy of all on the dance floor we recommend you attend around 8-10 classes to be able to really swing!
For anyone who has never danced before, who has danced for a short while or who would like to refresh some of the skills they've already learnt. Everyone welcome!
For those of you who can either already dance, or beginners who just can't get enough and are hungry for more tips! We will be teaching dance routines such as the Shim Sham and the Jitterbug stroll, Jazz steps and Charleston. All mixed in with tips about momentum, connection, musicality and all the technical bits about Lindy Hop. You'll need to have a bit of confidence on the dance floor to get the most out of the lessons, but everyone's welcome!
For those who have been lindy hopping for a little while, are familiar with swing outs, partnered charleston and are ready for more! We will get a bit more technical, teach new moves and jazz steps. If you're wondering if this is for you, talk to us in class or give us a call. No booking necessary, we look forward to seeing you there!
Partner dancing is a lost art form, there is nothing better than sharing a random few minutes with someone on the dance floor. Lindy Hop is about having fun, how well you dance is not as important as how much you enjoy dancing!
Graeme and Amanda understand that the idea of social dancing can be a little scary at first, so they organise practice sessions at every dance class. Hang around for social dancing as this is an essential part of the learning to dance experience and a great opportunity to get to know your fellow Lindy Hoppers. Graeme and Amanda will be on standby to answer any questions you have about what you are learning in lessons or lindy hop in general. They also organise regular outings to introduce their students to the wider swing dance scene.
Dance and be happy - everyone welcome!
Come and see what all the fuss is about, we guarantee you will leave this class wanting more! For anyone wishing to find out a little bit more about lindy hop and wanting to learn a few basic moves to do on the dance floor. We usually teach taster classes at the beginning of a dance event, such as the Brighton Swing Thing. Everyone welcome!
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We recommend flat shoes (not flip flops), with a smooth sole. If you like the idea of dressing in clothing of the era, Amanda is available to give tips of what to wear and where to buy it either online or in Brighton - just ask!
