Introducing Spitalfields new format – four week blocks! We love working with a dedicated group of people across a block, to get to know your dancing, to share ideas, and watch you blossom into the badass dancers we know you are!
For us, swing dancing has three main components: the rhythm, yourself, and your partner. For this reason, our classes will take an in-depth but fun approach including more than just ‘just moves’ – to help you to become well-rounded dancers ready to become great swing dancers around London!
Level 1 – Absolute beginners class | 7pm – 8pm
We’ll cover the basics of swing dancing in four week blocks, with content that builds from week to week, to get you social dancing in no time. Each block will start from scratch and cover swing fundamentals, get a bit nerdy about dance technique, and give you fun tools, games, and exercises to develop your dancing across the weeks.
Level 2 – Intermediate Plus class | 8.05pm – 9.05pm
We will presume strong fundamentals: basic lindy and charleston rhythms and vocabulary (swing outs etc). That being said, this class is really aimed at people wanting to get super nerdy about dancing, stretch themselves, and learn at a faster pace. We will work on concepts, partner and solo drills, quality of movement and rhythm, and give you exercises to pocket and work on in your own time, or try with a mate on the social floor! By teaching content in thematic blocks with content that builds from week to week, you will be able to focus on specific elements of your dancing, and work on developing your technique across each week! These more advanced concept blocks are for true dance keen-beans looking to push your dance limits, and improve fast!
