    HVAD DU KAN FORVENTE AF HEPCATS' BEGYNDERKURSUS - for info in English click here

    Hver torsdag aften i 6 uger vil Hepcats' erfarne undervisere guide dig igennem Lindy Hoppens grundlæggende trin, variationer, stilarter og rytmer. Derudover vil du også lære nogle af de mest udbredte Lindy Hop kombinationer, også kaldet 'moves'. Efter kun et par få gange vil du have lært nok til at deltage på det sociale dansegulv sammen med de andre Hepcats hold. Vi glæder os til at danse med dig! !Vær opmærksom på at undervisningen hovedsageligt  vil foregå på engelsk, men da vores undervisere er danske vil der altid være mulighed for at stille spørgsmål på dansk! Hvis du aldrig har set nogen der danser LindyHop og gerne vil vide mere, så tag et kik på video'en herunder der viser et klip fra en time for dansere med ca. 1 års erfaring - du kan også læse mere om dansen her (nyt vindue)

    Tilmelder du dig med en partner? - for info in English click here

    Skriv din partners email adresse i 'with a partner' feltet når du tilmelder dig. Vær opmærksom at din partner også selv skal tilmelde sig det samme hold og skrive din email i deres tillmelding. Husk du behøver ikke tilmelde dig med en partner. Bemærk, at vi skifter dansepartnere ofte i vores undervisning, så du vil komme til at danse med andre deltagere på holdet lige så vel som med den partner du tilmelder dig med. Årsagen til hyppige partnerskift er, at vores erfaring viser, at folk lærer dansen og teknikken meget hurtigere når man danser med forskellige partnere. Desuden, hvis din sædvanlige partner ikke har mulighed for at deltage en aften, ønsker vi ikke at du ender op alene uden at få danset med andre. Når vi skifter partnere ofte, tilsikrer vi at alle får mulighed for at danse denne skønne dans! Note that Lindy Hop, like Salsa and Tango, is a social dance. We change partner frequently during class, so you will get to dance with the other participants. This way you'll get to learn the dance and the technique much faster than if you only dance with one person. Also, in case you have signed up with a partner, but your partner is unable to attend one evening, you can still join class.
