Summer workshops in August 2022

August 1@20.00-21.00

Killer Boogie solo routine I (Andries)

The Killer Boogie is a really fun and energetic Boogie Woogie Routine, made by Marcus Koch and perfected by Rasmus Holmqvist, on a song by the Dutch Piano Legend Jan Rietman.
Don’t worry. It might seem fast, but we’ll start out slow and gradually ramp up the speed. You’ll b ready to Boogie away in no time! No previous experience is required.

The first two classes will take place on August 1st and 8th and will focus on learning the routine.
The last class is on August 15th and will focus on recapping the routine and ramping up the speed. Plus I’ll add in some nice variations to spice things up. The last class is also available for people who already know the Killer Boogie and want to spice up their boogie.

All 3 classes together will be 35 euro and if you want to only take the last class it’s 12,50.

August 4 @20.00-21.30

Follower’s Initiative Workshop (Amy and Andries)

Who says Leaders always get to decide what happens in a dance?! Amy & Andries will give you an introduction to Follower’s Initiative in Lindy Hop. We’ll cover both variations that the follower can do without disturbing the lead, but also Hijacking, in which the followers take over. It’s all about surprising and inspiring each other!
And even though the workshop is about Follower’s Initiative, there is just as much to take from for the leaders. After all, it takes Two to Ta…eeh Lindy.

This class is for everybody of Intermediate Level and up. You should be comfortable with all the moves from the Take Five cycle, like basic 6-count, 8-count, Swing-out, and Lindy Circle. Knowledge of Charleston is not required.

The class will be 1,5 hours and will cost 15 euros. You can register with the link below:

August 19 @18.45-19.45

Balboa taster for beginners (Darren and Stéphanie)

When the tempo picks up on the dancefloor and triple steps become rushed, some might Shag and some may Charleston. But we love the smooth, sophisticated shuffle of Balboa that we can dance all night without breaking a sweat.

With seemingly invisible signals and responses between partners, Balboa can seem mysterious to the onlooker but is relished by dancelovers who revel in the magic feeling of leading and following.

Come and experience it for yourself in this taster class. We hope to see many of you in our new course for beginners in September.
For those of you familiar with Balboa already, why not take up the challenge of dancing the opposite role (in our experience Balboa is the easiest Swingdance to switch roles in!)

Let us show you how classy and stylish Swingdancing can be!
Price is €12,50 per person.
