Lindy Workshop
The Lindy Hop is a rhythmical, partnered jazz dance created by dancers inspired by musicians who were inspired by dancers who inspired other dancers in the ballrooms of Harlem from 1927 starting with the breakaway through to the invention of rock and roll in the 1950s and early 1960s. The dance has a traditional lead and follow structure, but has an endless number of amalgamations and individual stylings. The Lindy Hop can be danced to all kind of tempi, offers both closed and open patterns, solo steps, and an occasional air step. Musicality plays a key element of the dance which allows it to adapt between musical styles. This workshop will offer all levels of classes.

Tap & Jazz Workshop
Jazz is a general term that can refer to any vernacular dance from the Cake Walk dances to post WWII material linked with be-bop to rhythm & blues to Hip Hop. It often refers to dancing without a partner rather than dancing with a partner. It can be improvised or done in routines like the Shim Sham, Big Apple, Tranky Doo & others. These classes have been combined with Tap. Tap is a percussive dance based on rhythm, timing and balance. This workshop with offer all levels of classes.

Junior Workshop
The Junior Workshop will offer classes in both Lindy and Jazz. Classes are design with those aged 10-18 in mind.
