Collegiate Shag with Ilias & Calliope

Always wanted to try Collegiate Shag? We are pleased to offer you the chance to learn the basics of this fascinating dance style to uptempo swing music. It belongs to the Swing family of American vernacular dances that arose in the 1920s and 30s. The Shag is still danced today by Swing dance enthusiasts worldwide. Open for dancers with at least one semester of Lindy Hop experience. Please note that Collegiate Shag is a physically demanding dance style.

Performance group with Ilias & Freya

In this class we will work on group performance routines on a weekly basis, both in couple and solo dance. Class material might include some basic aerials. Open for dancers with at least one year of Lindy Hop courses, and frequent social dancing experience. There is no requirement to perform at events, but those that want to perform at one of our parties are always welcome.

Spice up your Lindy with Boris & Freya

No more simple 6- and 8-counts! In this class we will work on technique, connection, variations and improvisations. We will add fun (solo) jazz moves and rhythms to our dancing. Let’s renew and reinvent our Lindy! This class is for dancers that have at least one year of Lindy Hop experience. 

Charleston with Davy & Stella

Ever run out of ideas when dancing Charleston to a song? In this class we’ll consolidate our basics in both solo and couple Charleston, and learn new moves and fun variations to inspire you! This class is open for dancers with at least one semester of Lindy Hop experience and who are comfortable with basic charleston footwork.

Switch class with Sjouke & Danielle

Always wanted to explore the fun of switching roles in Lindy Hop? We will teach you how to switch from leading to following and from following to leading, even multiple times within the same song. There are no preassigned roles in this class, not even during a single song: at any beat of the music you and your dance partner may switch roles.

Everybody will dance in both roles with everybody else, so we assume that you’re okay with dancing with partners of the same gender. It would be great if you already tried to dance Lindy Hop in the “opposite role”, but that’s not a requirement. This class is open for dancers with at least one year of Lindy Hop experience. We don’t have leaders, followers or couples, but just “dancers”, so there is no need to register in couples.

Solo jazz and rhythms with Ieva, Freya and Ingrida

Do you want to expand your solo dancing with fun variations and rhythms? Join this solo jazz course! Here we will work on enhancing rhythm, improvisation, movement and solo jazz vocabulary. This class is open for dancers that have at least one semester experience in solo jazz lessons. The course will cover different topics, from spicing up your basic steps with new variations, to improvising or getting inspired by tap rhythms.

 

Course fees:

IMPORTANT: Fees listed are for the whole fast track from May to June 2019 (6 classes)! It is not possible to purchase single classes.

1st course: €50 per person.  

If you select more than 1 course, there is a 10 euro reduction applied to that course.

indoor: the shoes are only worn indoors and never outdoors.

We don’t offer trial classes. If you’re curious to get an idea what lindy hop is like, please join one of our free taster classes, or join us during our social dancing.

The success of our classes depends on you, our wonderful students, showing up for the course(s) you register in! Therefore we have some rules:

Full refund (with a €5 administration fee) will be possible up until May 10th, 2019.

No refund is available for any cancellations made after May 10th, 2019.

Transfer Policy:

Successful registration for courses acts like a ticket, and is transferable to another student according to these rules:

The new student is of the same level and dancing role (lead/follow). The financial aspects of this transfer must be conducted privately between the two individuals. The original ticket holder must inform Swing Dance Luxembourg (SDL) of the transfer.  The communication of this transfer to SDL must take place no later than 1 week (May 10th, 2019) before classes start.
