The Wednesday Club is on most weeks but not all, so check our calendar for dates:
Improvers: This class is for swing dancers who have completed a Beginners course and are looking to practice their fundamentals and get more confident about social dancing. You should already have learned your Swing Outs and Lindy Circles, some 6-Count Lindy Hop and your Lindy Charleston basics. These classes will recap and polish everything you learned in your Beginners course, and teach you a few more fundamental steps.
Intermediate: This class is for swing dancers who are already confident with their fundamentals and are looking to build their repertoire to progress towards more advanced dancing. These classes focus on classic moves every Lindy Hopper should know.
Advanced: This class is for swing dancers who are very confident with their fundamentals and are looking to challenge themselves with advanced connection, challenging moves, sweet rhythms, musicality and style.
Variety Class: this class will be suitable for Intermediate and Advanced dancers. Topics will rotate each month and might be a specialised Lindy Hop theme, or could be solo jazz, Balboa, Shag or other dance skills.
The November variety class topic is “Speed Training” – learn a Lindy Hop routine then train it hard with Sharon & Josh, as a tool to improve your fast dancing. The goal: don’t let speed compromise your style and comfortable connection.
The December variety classes will be Solo Jazz with Sharon!
The January variety classes will be “Swingout History” – take a walk through time and examine the different styles and techniques of our favourite move, the Swing Out. Learn famous Swingouts from yesterday and today.
