Workshop Overview


✤ Beginner Air Steps ✤

Time: 20.30-22.00
Description: In this workshop, you will learn some great traditional and modern Air Steps. Focus is on not only teaching you the airsteps, but also training you in how to mix it into your partner dancing.
Airsteps to work on: Frog Jump, Swing Out Jump & Sack of potatoes
Please note: It is mandatory to sign up as a dance couple, because we’ll not change partners.
Level: The workshop is aimed at dancers with little or no experience in air steps or physical training.


✤ Unexpected Stretch ✤

Time: 10.00 – 11.30
Description: One of the most used techniques is the stretch, that is, the sensation or effect that both dancers move away, while being connected in an elastic stretch. In this workshop we will work on the sensations of elasticity in dance in less conventional moments, to create new fun steps.
Level: Beginner – Intermediate (Swing 3 – Swing 6)

✤ Stealing ✤

Time: 12.30 – 14.00
Description: As part of the Lindy Hop culture, either in a Jam or just playing with dance partners, we sometimes “steal” a dancer during the dance to form a new couple or join the dance. Although it is a game, doing it smoothly and with a natural effect requires control of the steps and connection. We will see simple and advanced ways for both roles.
Level: Intermediate (Swing 4 – Swing 6)


✤ Musicality: Syncopation ✤

Time: 10.00 – 11.30
Description: The musical concept of syncopation can be applied to dance, and even more so to swing dance. In class, in addition to understanding well what syncopation is, we will incorporate it into our footwork individually and eventually how to lead and follow it.
Level: Intermediate – Advanced (Swing 6 – Swing 😎

✤ Over-rotations and under-rotations ✤

Time: 12.30 – 14.00
Description: Directional changes have a great effect on many Lindy Hop steps. This dynamic sometimes can feel forced, with excess tension or lack of balance. In this class, we will adjust the connection, axis, and footwork for smooth and controlled over-rotations.
Level: Intermediate – Advanced (Swing 6 – Swing 😎
