New Rounds of Swing-dancing Classes Starting
Posted February 23rd, 2012 - 1:38 am by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Hi swingers and potential swingers,

Just thought I'd let you know that there is a whole bunch of new swing dancing (Lindy Hop) classes starting next week at two different venues. Yay! One place is:

Tante Emma
Köpenicker Str 1A
10997
(near U-bahn Schlesisches Tor)

and the other:

HBC Berlin
Karl-Liebknecht Str 9
10178
(near Hackescher Markt and Alexander Platz)

Here is the new schedule:

*Lindy Hop for Complete Beginners*
This class is for people who have never danced before or who want to repeat the basics. We'll show you how to move with a partner to the music! By the end of six classes, you should be able to do a basic 8-count swingout and a few basic figures.
Teachers: Katja & Marcus
Time: Tuesdays 1900-2015, begins 28.02, ends 03.04 (1x weekly)
Location: .HBC Berlin, Karl-Liebknecht Str 9

Suitable for many different levels, but intended primarily for levels between beginners to intermediate . Classes here are always different. It might be technique, solo jazz, or an interesting figure (or two, or three!). Maybe all of the above!

*Lindy Hop Beginners Intermediate*
Beginners Intermediate comes after Beginners Plus, but we may relax the rules a bit if you've just completed a beginners class, cannot attend Beginners Plus, are excited and motivated, and willing to work hard to catch up. In short, you are beginning to understand the dance. You are always rhythmic and know a few Charleston and Lindy Hop figures already. You're getting better, but maybe you're starting realize that you have more to learn than ever. You can do a swingout, but could there be another way?
Time: Thursdays 2015-2130, begins 01.03, ends 05.04 (1x weekly)
Teachers: Katja & Marcus
Location: Tante Emma, Köpenicker Str 1A
Price: 50€/42€ erm

*Lindy Hop Technique, Tricks, and Everything Else*
For Intermediates and above. You must have completed the equivalent of Beginners Intermediate and gotten the teachers' approval. Here we'll throw fun figures, flash, and lots of different ideas at you. This is hard work, but fun, too!
Time: Wednesdays 2015-2130, begins 29.02, ends 04.04 (1x weekly)
Teachers: Marcus & Guest Instructors
Location: Tante Emma, Köpenicker Str 1A
Price: 50€/42€ erm

Email berlinhop(at)googlemail.com to register for any of the above classes. You can also drop in for one class to try it out (€12/class). Just let them know beforehand!

There are social dances on every Tuesday 21:30 at HBC Berlin, and Wednesday 21:30 at Tante Emma so you can practice what you're learned after class.

Hope to see you at one of those soon!
