Lessons Sept-Nov: Schedule Registration Location

The next round of Sugarspin classes run from September 4 till November 20. We offer 3 courses, all of which are held on Monday evenings. There are 12 lessons for each course:

  • Lindy A This is our course for absolute beginners. In this course we will teach the basics of Lindy Hop. The first two classes are free open lessons (Sept 4 & 11) with different steps. To continue with the full beginners course you need to have participated in at least one of these open lessons. You only have to pay if you decide to take the full course.
  • Lindy B For all those who have already taken our level A course or have at least 3 months of experience elsewhere. In this class we’ll improve your technique, sense of music and how to have fun!
  • Lindy C For all those who have already taken our level B or C course or have at least 6 months of experience elsewhere. In this class we’ll improve your dancing even more!

In between classes and after Lindy C there will be a free social dance, open for everyone, especially visitors.

Leading and Following


Lindy Hop is danced by a leader and a follower. The leader initiates the moves and directions. The follower follows the direction given, but has a lot of freedom to add styling and contribute to the dance. Traditionally, men dance as leaders and women dance as followers, and will usually still be asked for their traditional role at parties. In the Lindy Hop scene everybody is free to choose what fits them best, and encouraged to dance with anybody, no matter what age or gender. Many advanced dancers enjoy both roles nowadays. For new beginners we offer the possibility to test both roles if you take both open lessons.

Registration


We have received many registrations for the new course and it is rapidly filling up. We’re currently using a waiting list for new registrations, so that we can evaluate whether we still have a spot for you. You can join the waiting list by filling in this form. If we find a spot for you we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.

To encourage a good lead/follow balance (we always have more follows), we encourage you to sign up with someone of the opposite role. This ensures you have a spot (if the class is not full). But you can also sign up alone (especially leaders). We will rotate partners in class. Registrations are accepted in order of when the payment is received, as long as the class is balanced.
