Lindy Hop workshop followed by Swing Night social dance with live music!

So you like to dance, but would like to try something else than salsa, house or disco. Why not have a go at Lindy Hop dancing!

 

Get to taste the Lindy Hop experience through a workshop for absolute beginners. No prior dance experience required. So you’re very welcome even if you have two left feet! ;-)

The Lindy Hop is an American dance that evolved in Harlem, New York City in the 1920s and 1930s and originally evolved with the jazz music of that time. Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development, but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway and Charleston. It is frequently described as a jazz dance and is a member of the swing dance family.

Lindy Hop has experienced a revival in the past decade and is alive and kicking globally in 2013!

 

After the workshop you’ll be able to practice your new moves on the dance floor with live music from big band ‘the Jazz Warriors’.

You can also watch the more experienced dancers in action, should you have cold feet. Or have a drink or two with other guests at a great location with a beautiful view of the IJ lake in Amsterdam.

 

Program:

 

• [masked] Lindy Hop workshop for absolute beginners;

• [masked] Swing night social dance with live music from big band The Jazz Warriors.

 

I’m going to sing two songs with the band on this occasion!!!!!



SO JOIN THE PARTY AND LET'S SWING THE NIGHT AWAY!

 

Hope to see you there!

    Hi all,

    Thanks for joyning me at the Kompaszaal! Sorry for not being very talkative, but I had a sore throat. If a singer suffers from this condition, the first thing he/she should do is avoid talking before performing. This explains why I wasn't socializing. And my apologies for not saying goodbye to everyone when I left. I had to run to catch the last tram. I promise to do a better job the next time we meet.

    Hope you had fun doing the workshop and watching the experienced Lindy Hop dansers. And liked my singing!

    Have a great weekend,
    Rudi
    Big Band S(w)inger
