Which ability level class should I join?

Beginners

If you have never danced before and fancy giving it a go, this is the class for you. The class will progress at a gentle pace and it is a lot of fun!

Improvers

If you took the beginners class last year of you have done a couple of swing dance taster classes then this is the one for you. Also this is a great class for anyone who has maybe never tried lindy hop before danced other styles, and finds it easy to pick things up, or complete beginners who fancy a challenge.

Intermediate

The intermediate class is for you if you are comfortable dancing 6 count and 8 count lindyhop and are familiar with moves such as swing outs, lindy circles and lindy turns. You can social dance and implement new moves you learn in your social dancing.

Advanced

If you are confident dancing at any tempo, adding variation and individual styling into your dancing and have had plenty of experience social dancing then this is the class for you. In this class we look at advanced techniques and is a great way to push your dancing to that next level.


Solo Jazz for Electro Swing

This is an open class suitable for all ability levels, though it will be fast paced and aimed at people with some experience of dance, - though not necessarily in swing dance. If you've done a bit of lindy hop/tap/jaz/zumba/street/salsa etc or you are fast at picking things up and you want to push yourself then this is the class for you,

 

Lead or follow?

Traditionally in Lindy Hop the Lead part is for guys, and the follow for gals, however you are totallyy free to dance whichever part you like and good dancers often learn both. You are welcome to sign up to dance which ever part you like, we will keep an eye on the numbers and make sure the classes are balanced so that when we rotate partners in class there are no long waits.


Safety in Swing
We believe everyone should have an enjoyable and safe experience while attending Stomp stomp and have put together a code of conduct and request that everyone adhears to it. You can have a read here and any questions just get in touch.
