Swing Out Refresher

It’s been more than a year, and your swing outs are probably rusty. Ours are, too! Or, you’re new to lindy hop and want to learn how to swing out from scratch! This class is for you ๐Ÿ™‚

With Covid precautions in place, these classes must be taken with a set partner, and there will be no rotation in class. Come with a partner, stick with that partner. If you don’t already have a dance buddy who wants to learn the opposite role to you (i.e. to make a lead-follow pair โ€“ we suggest posting in our Facebook community to find somebody!

This is a 4-week series of classes that will focus on swing outs. Each class will be different, and you don’t have to come to all of them. We’ll be covering basic footwork to start off each class, and then we’ll try different figures each time and discover great music.

All the material will be beginner-friendly, and for those who have a bit more experience, you’ll be able to practice with your partner and get personalised feedback.

Space is limited, due to Covid precautions.

Class 1: Basic footwork and building to a swing out.
Class 2: Swivels & juicy styling
