You haven’t danced Lindy Hop before and you want to quickly learn the basics to have fun on the dance floor?
Come and learn basic steps and movements with Apollo Swing teachers, boost your dancing with 7 hours of Lindy Hop classes, 4 tasters and practice your freshly learned new moves directly on the dance floor!
All you need is a pair of dance shoes and being in a good mood…
A track made easy for newcomers to Lindy Hop, however not for complete beginners.
You need to be comfortable with the basics of Charleston, 6 and 8 counts, pass-by and change places.
The basics of Charleston, Lindy circle, swing out, back charleston are mastered, as well as all kinds of variations. You walk blindly into the groove walks and triple steps and you can dance the 6 & 8 counts easily. You won’t stop at that and will stretch to further steps.
As a leader or follower you are capable of improvisation without a hitch.
You are familiar with a great number of figures and you know how to successfully lead or follow them. Sometimes not. You feel comfortable to slow rythms but fast tempo is still challenging. You are eager to learn new moves and to improve your technique.
Your life is a mix of parties, classes and workshops. You are a confident leader and follower and you can improvise to fast music. Your own dance style and personality shine through which makes the difference for a more personal musicality and mood expression.
You master the different skills needed in Lindy Hop in either slow or fast tempos.
Gone through all of the above? Than you have deserved a larger bite of the cake and Fats is for you. You are a Lindy Hopper through and through, a talented dancer and you are able to teach if you don’t already do. Nobody is counting the number of classes or workshops attended, local or international, as it is quality that counts. However, you wouldn’t miss a day without dancing. You are now well-established as a reference dancer or you are most wanted on the dance scene, or not. An audition launched by the teachers will likely confirm your talent.
