Learn to Lindy Hop! This energetic partner dance originated in African-American communities at the height of the Swing Era in the 20s, 30s and 40s and is still a global phenomenon today.
Oxford Lindy Hoppers teach fun, friendly drop-in classes. No need to bring a partner and pre-booking is not required. Do bring a water bottle though as you will break a sweat.
No previous dance experience required for the Beginners classes. We’ll be teaching the fundamentals you need to get out on the dance floor and move to the music!
For this block of lessons we are running two beginners classes, the 19:30 class will teach both the follow and lead roles to all attendees (you’ll switch roles part way through the class) while in the 20:30 class you’ll stick to one role for the class (you can still switch roles from week to week if you want). The two classes won’t be covering exactly the same content so you can do both if you want more Lindy in your life.
For people with previous Lindy Hop experience, the Improvers and Intermediates classes will cover more advanced concepts so you can express your creativity on the dance floor.
