Beginner Lindy Hop (Observatory)
In this course, we will lure you onto the social dance floor with some classic lindy hop* moves that fill the jazz phrase. The course is beginner-friendly, specially designed for those who have little-to-no dance experience, and for those who have danced other types of dances but want to try lindy hop.
* The lindy hop is a partnered dance that originated in the African American communities in Harlem in the 1930s, and spread all over the world during the height of the Swing Era. It’s a dynamic, connected, stretchy, super-fun, expressive dance that plays with the swinging big band music of the era. It’s made a big comeback in recent decades thanks to its joyful energy.
R100 pp/class, or R380 for the course. No need to bring a partner. Anyone can lead or follow, roles not gendered.
