We offer 5 levels (beginners 6 h, other levels 7 h) of lindy hop during this weekend, beginner-intermediate, intermediate, intermediate-advanced, advanced, and veteran levels. Lindy hop is an Afro-American partner dance that became popular in the 1930s. Watch a movie clip here with some Savoy swing dancing.
COLLEGIATE SHAG SHORT TRACK
An intense intro to Collegiate Shag (3 h) where we go through the basics (so that everyone is on the same page) and move on to more advanced ideas. No previous experience of Collegiate Shag needed, though we would recommend that you have at least a basic understanding of lead, follow and connection (lindy hop 2-5). What is Collegiate Shag? Watch a clip here. Teachers: Arnas & Egle.

Super fun taster (1 h) where you'll work with our fabulous band the Shirt Tail Stompers on the subject of musicality, move to the rhythm! No previous experience needed.
1 h of air steps, the "hop" in lindy hop! Make sure to wear comfy clothes! Here you'll learn some great material you can use eg. in shows. Please try and find a partner for this taster (1 lead + 1 follower, 1 lead + 2 followers, 2 leads + 1 follower). No previous experience needed.
