With Robyn Larsen
Join the infamous Robyn for lesson or two in Swing Dancing. What is Swing Dancing? It’s a collection of dances from the 1920s-1940s including Lindy hop and Charleston. Read more about it here.
Level 1 – Absolute beginners class | 2.30pm – 3.30pm
These classes are for new dancers and there is no experience required. We go over the basics every week and then throw in some new moves to get you dancing in no time. This class is drop-in, so you don’t need to book in advance and you don’t need to bring a partner.
Level 1.5 – Improvers class | 3.30pm – 4.30pm
This class focuses on a whole array of things, and will vary each week. We will work on technique and tips to get your dancing feeling really good. To do this class you will sometimes need to have a basic grasp of 6-beat Lindy Hop, 8-beat Lindy hop, Side-by-side Charleston and Tandem Charleston, but most weeks are also geared towards beginners in both classes, so listen out in level 1 for more info. If you need a quick refresher just ask before the class. We will also go into other styles that come under the umbrella name of ‘Swing’, including Blues, Balboa, and Solo jazz.
Level 2 – Intermediate class | 4.45pm – 5.45pm
You’ve been doing beginners classes solidly for months. You are very comfortable dancing 6 count Lindy hop and Charleston. You’ve learned an 8 count swing out but maybe just recently and are looking to refine your basics, brush up that swing out and get some new material under your belt. You’re starting to social dance regularly and want a little more lead/follow clarity in your life! We will also focus on more solo jazz routines and technique in these classes!
