The Blues’n Jazz Rallye is once again being held in Luxembourg, and we’re here to help you swing to the music!
For this workshop, no dancing experience is required. We will teach you the basics of swing dancing in one afternoon (roughly 4 hours of classes).
||Saturday 19 July, 13.00 – 18.00. (including breaks)|
||Scott’s Pub (right in the heart of the Rallye).|
||€ 20,- per person.|
- ▸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, if you don’t have a partner, you can register anyway. If there’s place, we’ll add you, and otherwise, we’ll put you on a waiting list.
Of course, if you have someone to dance with, bring them! After all, Lindy Hop is danced in pairs.
- ▸What is a “Leader”? What is a “Follower”?
Swing dancing is danced in couples. In a couple, one person is “leading”, and the other is “following”. In traditional couple dances, men are leaders and women are followers.
- ▸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.
On some system configurations, the form may not display correctly. In order to register, you can send the relevant details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information: First name, Last name, E-mail address, Registering as a leader or follower, (optionally) partner first and last name, Full pass/Saturday pass/Sunday pass.
