Beginner Lindy Hop: Swing Outs 101 (Camps Bay)

This 4-week series will introduce you to the swing out, a cornerstone piece of the lindy hop*.  The classes are all 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. No need to bring a partner. Anyone can lead or follow, roles not gendered.

What to bring:

– Comfy shoes that you can dance in (sneakers and formal shoes are great, low vintage style heels are fine too)
– A water bottle

Please take note of our cancellation policy.
