Roadmap

  • Your Lindy experience
    starts here
    Beginners 4 months

    Here we start from zero. We build our fundamentals of rhythm, body movement and partner dancing in general. We cover things like dancing side-by-side, moving with partner in closed and open, swinging out and circling around.

    The Beginners' course consists of two parts, which can be taken in any order:

    • Beginners'
    • Beginners' Kicks

    In the Beginners' we focus on dancing with triples and in the Beginners' Kicks course we dance with kick steps, also called Lindy Charleston.

  • 0.5 - 1 years
    Improvers 4 months

    In this course, we enlarge our swing dance vocabulary with the essential variations you may encounter on the social dance floor. We also learn more about technical aspects of own body movement and partner connection.

    At the end of the course the focus shifts towards musicality and styling.

  • For Beginners’ and Improvers’ levels our suggestions for additional courses:

    • Solo Jazz
    • Suitable workshops
  • ~ 1 - 2.5 years
    Intermediate approx. 1 year

    At Intermediate level we explore essential challenging combinations, rhythms and shapes and solidify a good chore technique as our basic and integrate footwork variations. Now fast music is not only for kicks but also for fast triples.

    We learn about the different layers in swing music and how to make the most of the holy triangle: us, our partner and the music.

    Intermediate level lasts one year.

  • For Intermediate level we suggest for additional courses:

    • Slow Swing
    • Solo Jazz
    • Suitable workshops
  • ~ 2.5 - 4 years
    Intermediate-Advanced approx. 1 - 1.5 years

    At this level you will keep refining your musical awareness, partner connection, your quality of movement and your style. We expect students to be pro-active to set themselves goals and put in extra effort to practise.

    Intermediate-Advanced level lasts one year or more.

  • Advanced

    We do not offer this level yet.
