Blues taster Thursday 21.11 at 20-21:00!

Next up in this semesters taster session – blues dancing!

What is blues dancing you ask? Blues dancing is one of the African rooted dance styles that has a strong influence on todays swing dancing community.

Bluesdancing is often associated with beeing slow, sensual, and emotionally intense. Yet, as with blues music, a blues dance may range across many tempos and musical styles.

Blues is not only handy to know for rounding of an all-night dance party, but the playfullness and musicality in blues dancing can also greatly improve your imporovisation skills in Lindy Hop.

Check out some beautiful blues dancing here:

See you at Asylbarnehagen!

Shim sham crash course & social dance this Saturday at 20:00 9.3

We are throwing a crash course in Shim sham this Saturday at 20:00! You don’t wanna miss out on learning the solo jazz routine that so many lindy hoppers all over the world know. The shim sham is also a part of the routine we will perform on Dansens Dag in the spring, so this is a great opportunity to freshen up your steps, even if you might already be familiar with the dance. 

Also, we’re of course taking social dance for a night out in town!
Bring your best mood and nicest shoes and come join us at Speilsalen in Kvarteret Saturday night! We promise music for both Lindy hop and Balboa dancers from 21:00-02:00. Anybody else with restless feet are also most welcome!

See you on the dancefloor!

Course start autumn 2018

Dear swing cats,

We are soon ready to kick off a new semester of dancing!

Our venue Asylbarnehagen has been under renovation, which has forced us to postpone the course start a bit. But looking from the bright side, we’ll have a new and improved dance floor soon enough!

Asylbarnehagen has now informed us that we are welcome to dance there again the 20th of September. Stay tuned and we will soon inform you when and where Lindy 1 will start.

The other venue at Danckert Krohn is ours as usual, more info will come soon about Lindy Hop 2 class start.
