About the teachers
Sep and Bára are actively developing their dancing abilities on dance floors around Europe. Their similar view on dancing and common joy of dancing together led to their cooperation. They are involved in a number of projects such as performing groups The Dipsy Doodles and Swingzapoppin where old Jazz dances and Lindy Hop are the main theme. In addition, they teach regular classes at the Crazy Legs Dance school in Ghent.
Bára and Sep share the same passion about dancing which is not exclusively focused on lindy hop. They love to explore new ideas and approaches and are inspired by any kind of performing arts and any kind of music.
Music has a large influence on their dancing style as well as on their approach to teaching. They believe in own expressivity and in using the endless options that music offers. The main focus in their classes is for you to have fun together with your partner.
They are both active social dancers. You can meet them in the jazz bars around Ghent, dancing and enjoying great music. They also travel a lot around Europe to experience the passion for Swingdance, to teach workshops, to attend workshops or join competitions.
- ▸What language is used for the course?
As both teachers and students have a wide variety of nationalities, classes are taught in English.
- ▸Do I need to register with a partner?
No, we’ll rotate partners during class anyway.
Of course, if you have someone to dance with, bring them! After all, Lindy Hop is danced in pairs.
- ▸I heard you rotate dance partners during class?
Like virtually all other Lindy Hop clubs, we rotate dance partners frequently during classes. This helps both leader and follower become better faster, as they both are exposed to different dancers with varying strengths and weaknesses.
- ▸I want to dance exclusively with my partner.
We won’t force you to change partners. However, we strongly encourage it. We know you’ll make progress a lot faster if you do dance with others.
- ▸What clothes should I wear?
Preferably something light, such as a t-shirt. Dancing can be quite intensive, and you may find it gets rather quickly warm.
Tip: bring a clean shirt for when you need a change.
- ▸What kind of shoes should I wear?
Bring comfortable non-marking indoor shoes. This means: shoes with soles that do not leave marks when dragged over wooden floors, and shoes that are never worn outside. The slicker the soles, the better. Pumps or stiletto heels are out: no need for heels and it may damage the floor. For beginners: a pair of dress shoes with clean soles will probably suffice.
- ▸I can’t view/fill in the form.
