Minimum level requirement

This is an intermediate level class.

This means:

  • You have at least 6 months of active dancing with plenty of swing-out miles and solid 8-count dancing technique under the belt – regular classes and social dancing (at least 2 rounds of beginners-intermediate at Hepcats + regular social dancing)
  • You can dance both 6- and 8-count and switch easily between the two
  • The class will be suited for everyone who has their basic 8-count lead/follow technique in place and an eagerness to learn new cool stuff
  • We expect you to practice during the week when possible

Prior dancing at Hepcats is not a requirement; we welcome all Lindy Hoppers as long as you meet the requirements outlined above.

If you are a more experienced dancer – you too are heartily welcome. Come and challenge yourself – go back to basics and have fun with the dance.


Information

‘Lindy Hop routine’

Join us and learn a fun Lindy Hop routine. Along the way you will learn some classic moves, work on connecting moves, memory and music and just enjoy the feeling of dancing a choreographed piece with a bunch of other people. We will touch on some technical aspects, but this class is also about dancing a lot and we will try to push the tempo a bit.

The class is open for people who have been through beginners-intermediate at least twice. If you are not a Hepcat dancer we expect you to know 8 count swing-out and 8 count circle (both done with triple steps), Charleston and basic 6-count moves like side pass, tuck turn etc.

More experienced dancers are welcome to join, but the level of teaching will still be aimed at intermediate dancers.

Please also note that we will do small recaps after classes and post them in a Facebook group. Because we are working on one single choreography through the whole round, we – in order to progress – expect you to work on the material even if you have to miss a class.

Sign up and swing out…! Bring good mood and a spare t-shirt. See you in swing-land!
