What can I expect? 

Go rock-stepping and kick-stepping your way around the dance floor on these fab Lindy Hop lessons! Get into the swing of the Lindy Hop as you learn all the essential moves of this invigorating and hugely social dance in just a day at these workshops in London and Brighton. Hosted by the Swing Patrol team, these starter courses focus around Lindy Hop, the signature dance of the Swing style. As you might guess, swing dancing is all about moving to the rhythm of the joyous, jazzy music of the same name and Lindy is the most celebrated dance of Swing. It’s a fun, upbeat, couples's dance that makes lessons a real joy to take part in - even if the nearest you’ve ever got to ‘proper’ dancing is settling down on the sofa to watch Strictly…Indeed, the high-energy Swing routines are always big audience pleasers. Full of fluid moves, aerials and the delightful ‘Swingout’ it’s a feast for the eyes, accompanied by music that’s sure to get your foot tapping in time. These lessons aim to prove that any of us can become a Lindy Hop dancer.So how do you learn the Lindy Hop? Well, without sounding too technical, it’s all about six count and eight count patterns (that's steps to the beat). You simply start with the basic footwork made up of rock steps, kicks and triple steps which you’ll pick up in no time. Rock-step, triple-step, walk, walk, triple-step and you’re Lindy Hopping. From there you’ll be taught a toolkit of moves that will let you dance whole songs - and there's even time to try the Lindy Charleston! Of course, there are loads and loads of more advanced Lindy Hop moves, from the She-He Turn and the Barrel Roll, to the Sugar Push and the Wrap in, Wrap Out, without even mentioning the whole host of aerials from the Frankie Pop to the Kaye Dip. There are so many funky moves to master, you’re bound to be hungry for more dancing after this beginner dance day. We can’t stress enough that you don’t need any experience for these Lindy Hop lessons, as the one day courses are specifically geared up for total beginners. All you need is a pair of flat comfy shoes or plimsolls and some enthusiasm, which will more than be matched by the Swing Patrol team. Time to get to the Hop guys and girls!
