A Conversation about Social Dancing
What is Social Dancing ?
We typically organize 1 social dance event per week. The idea is to meet up somewhere that lets us play our music and enjoy this dance we spend so much time learning! Everyone is welcome, and we often start the social dance with a beginners taster for those who want to figure out what this Lindy Hop thing is all about.
From June to August, and when the weather permits it, we meet up to dance outdoors. We tend to announce these events last minute as they depend on the weather. So if you are interested in attending, we recommend you to sign up to our weekly newsletter or join our Facebook page where we post the events. From September to May, we dance indoors. Please see our Calendar or Facebook page to verify all dates and locations, as we will sometimes try out new ones!
Is it Free?
Yes! We are pleased we can do this at no charge, which means there are no excuses for not showing up!
These are a great way to try Lindy Hop for the first time, hence the name taster. We focus on the basic steps and some easy movements to try to get you dancing that night! If you are thinking about taking classes with us, this is a great way to figure out if you like it.
Are there any best practices to follow?
- You will be dancing with another person most likely, so therefore taking the appropriate personal hygiene steps is always a good idea. Some people choose to bring an extra shirt to change throughout the evening.
- We request that you do not do any aerial moves on the social dance floor, as these can pose significant risk not only to you and your partner, but the other people on the dance floor.
- Watch out for your partner, you can see things they can’t, so try to make sure they don’t run into other people or objects.
- Most importantly, relax and have fun!
