Swing Dancing and Lindy Hop Complete Beginners Courses Starting in January!
Posted January 3rd, 2012 - 3:52 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Looking for a warm, indoor sport to keep your joins from seizing up over the wintery months? How about swing dancing! It's fun, athletic, and a great way to meet all sorts of fun people.

We're starting two new classes for beginners in January. They are aimed at people who have never danced before, so if you've never tried this sort of thing, no worries! We'll show you how to move with a partner to the music! And afterwards, there's an open dance party for everyone for just one euro.

There are also classes for the more experienced swingers. Here's the schedule for the new year:

6 x Tuesdays 1900-2015
(beginning 10.01.12, ending 14.02)
Complete Beginners
This class is for people who have never danced before. We'll show you how to move with a partner to the music! By the end of the six classes, you should be able to do a basic 8-count swingout and a few basic figures.

6 x Tuesday 2015-2130
Intermediate
(beginning 10.01.12, ending 14.02)
This class is for people who can comfortably do a swingout, know some figures by heart (maybe even some really complicated ones!), and just need to refine dancing in general.

6 x Thursday 1900-2015
(beginning 12.01.12, ending 16.02)
Complete Beginners
This class is for people who have never danced before. We'll show you how to move with a partner to the music! By the end of five classes, you should be able to do a basic 8-count swingout and a few basic figures.

6 x Thursday 2015-2130
(beginning 12.01.12, ending 16.02)
Beginner Intermediate
This class is for people who have completed a beginner class and know how to do a swingout. Maybe you'd like to improve your technique. Maybe you want to learn some new figures. Maybe you just like hearing "5,6,7,8". This class is for you!

You can come alone or with a partner, but if you're coming alone, please let us know if you want to learn to follow or to lead.

All courses cost a standard price of €50 for a six-class set (student/discount price €42). You're also welcome to just come along for one class to try it out. The single class price is €12.

We teach in English aber Deutsch wird auch gesprochen!
