Course Descriptions

Please read carefully the course descriptions below, to find the most suitable class for you.

Lindy Hop classes are sorted in different groups/levels named after Swing dance legends as Norma Miller, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and Frankie Manning. Each group represents a different stage in your Lindy Hop dancing. To understand how the progression through the different groups works, please refer to our general course policy. Don’t hesitate to write us an email, or to talk to your teachers in case of doubts on which group fits you best for the upcoming semester.

For any other questions, we’ve carefully prepared some frequently asked questions and their answers; please refer to them to see if they answer your initial questions!

*Within the first 3 weeks of classes, you have the possibility to transfer to another class, if you are not satisfied with the class you originally registered for. This can happen only upon discussion with your teachers and with their explicit approval. In case of change, please notify us with an email. After the first 3 classes, no changes will be possible.

 

Teachers

For Spring 2020 semester, all classes will be taught by professional residential teachers coming over to Luxembourg from Lithuania, apart from Collegiate Shag that will continue to be taught by Ilias & Calliope! 

Kamile Pundziute is a real treat in Vilnius Lindy Hop community, keeping it swingin’ since 2003, the very beginning of Lindy Hop explosion in Lithuania. Kamile has dedicated her life to dance. She is a dancer, a teacher, a choreographer and also a dance – movement therapist. She has travelled many places in Europe teaching, performing and spreading love for dancing.

Her education in somatics and movement therapy bring concepts of movement and following to a whole new level and is a base for her teaching. A knowledgeable approach coupled with an honest, joyful perspective of life is attractive for students. Positive experience guaranteed!

 

 

 

 

Arnas Jasiūnas is one of the top dancers of the thriving Lithuanian Lindy Hop scene, dancing since 2006. His original approach to dance will add to the knowledge of a dancer of any level. Arnas ideas are based on concepts of body movement, rhythms and authenticity of both the dance and the dancer. With his dance technique and teaching methods in the background Arnas turns the classroom into an effective workshop and gives students ideas for future training.

His long training in music makes his dancing a creative musical experience. And his playful personality will surprise and cheer you on the social dance floor. Rumor has it all 🙂

 

 

 

Tadas Vasiliauskas is one of the main Lindy Hop teachers in Vilnius, Lithuania. He teaches regular classes at Lindyhop.lt club. Tadas actively performs and choreographs: he is in charge of a performance troupe and also was one of the first performers to bring Lindy Hop on stage in a contemporary theater show “Partners” in Vilnius. Also he is a founder of Harlem Speaks Easy jazz club in Vilnius. Tadas can be frequently found playing the trombone as a side hobby. On the dance floor, you can recognize him for his playful dance style and great energy. Tadas also often travels abroad to teach, learn, perform and compete.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Collegiate Shag: Ilias & Calliope

Ilias and Calliope started dancing Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz back in February of 2016. Two months later, Collegiate Shag stole their hearts and they have been dancing it ever since. They are currently based in Luxembourg and they have been teaching in the Quattropole region (Luxembourg, Trier, Metz). Apart from teaching, they have been performing in Greece and Luxembourg with different dance groups (The Shag Comets, The Apple Jacks). They have choreographed a few Collegiate Shag routines of their own, see for example their performance at the BCN Shag Festival above!!
