We would love to teach at your weekend event & bring the fun of Lindy Hop to your community. Here is a selection of classes. Got other topics in mind? Let's have a chat! Contact us here.
Have fun with the classic Swing Out. Keep it simple & elegant or spice it up with more dynamic turns.
Unleash your playfulness as you discover new ways of hitting the breaks, feeling the rhythm & adding a real swing style in your dancing.
A partnered Charleston dance that gives you plenty of scope for fancy variations & personal styling.
A fun introduction to solo jazz steps which will add style to your partner dancing. Discover movement skills that will increase your stretch, twists, footwork rhythms & arm movements.
When the tempo slows down & the beat is less obvious, let's dance to the different parts of the music to create a variety of moods.
A group line dance that started in Harlem in the 1930s and it's now done at swing dances all over the world. Lots of fun with rhythms & styling.
Interested in DJing? Or do you just want to know what DJs do? All about equipment, choosing music, reading the floor, making a set flow and a dancefloor come alive - a rare chance to learn from one of the UK’s top swing and blues DJs.
(a talk with lively discussion so dance floor not needed. Just need a 6 ft table near power supply & chairs for attendees)
Joo-Lee & Andy of ‘DJam Swing Dance Festival’ have coached actors to dance in TV dramas including ‘United’ starring David Tennant. Always engaging and fun, they love to share their joy of the Lindy Hop through their technique-focused classes.
Andy is one of the UK’s top swing and blues DJs and much sought after by international swing dance festivals such as Herrang, Chase Festival, Swing Summit & Hullazpoppin to name a few.
Andy Lewis has been DJing since a magical moment in 2007, when he watched a small change in the energy and tempo of the music galvanise and rejuvenate a dance floor. He has gone on to develop his DJing for Lindy Hop, Balboa and Blues, and has a real talent for picking out music that is aimed at dancers. He loves to work the atmosphere of a floor, creating a flow of music and energy that inspires dancers to create extraordinary moments in their dancing. He has DJ’d many times at events in the UK and across Europe, including ESDC, DJam, Herrang, Snowball, ELX, Hullzapoppin, LSF, Spoonful, Blues Baby Blues and Tenhola, amongst many others.
