Good news! This spring we will start classes again. The first class will start on May 18th and we will have a block of 5 classes. We will offer two levels of classes, one beginner and one intermediate. Please register for a class through the registration form. You can find further information below.

Location

Our classes take place at Wijkcentrum de Pomhorst, Pomona 562 in Wageningen. 

 

Schedule

Classes will be held on the following dates: 18 May, 25 May, 1 June, 8 June & 15 June.

 

19:30 - 20:30 Beginners

20:30 - 21:30 Intermediate

Pricing

A block of 5 classes will cost 50 euros (or 35 euros for discount*). 

 

*Discount: Our aim is to create an open and inclusive community and therefore offer a discount for students, (currently) unemployed people, or anyone who for whatever reason wishes to make use of it. Please note that we do not make a profit from these classes but only want to cover the costs. You can opt for the discount in the registration form.

 

Level Descriptions

For the upcoming classes in autumn we will have two levels. However, we do not hold strict rules with regard to these levels. They serve as an indication. If you’re not sure which level you are, you can contact us and together we’ll look at which level will be best suited. 

 

Beginners:

Dancers who want to start learning lindy hop or have less than half a year of lindy hop experience and want to continue learning the basics.

 

Intermediate:

Dancers who have at least half a year of lindy hop experience and feel comfortable with basic moves. These classes focus on learning new moves, but also improving your connection and technique.

Teacher

Teodora owns a Swing Dance school situated in Amsterdam & Amersfoort called Swing Philosophy and she also runs, together with her business partner Jasper, the biggest swing dance venue in Amsterdam, called KZ. So basically she lives and breathes swing dance.

Dance Roles

Most of the dances we teach are couple dances, which means that we dance in pairs of two: leader and follower. However, this does not mean that you need a dancing partner in order to join the classes. During the classes, we usually rotate dance partners which trains you to dance with different types of leaders/followers, rather than one person. We’d like people to feel free to choose the role (lead or follow) they wish to practice at that moment. However, we’d also like to ensure the balance between these roles during the classes. When subscribing for a class you get the choice whether you wish to lead or follow during the classes, or both. If you choose both, your dance role might be different in each class, depending on your own preference, but also depending on the rest of the group.

First Class = Try-out

If you’re not quite sure whether the classes are for you and would like to try, you can try out the first class for free without having to commit to the full block. For this, you still need to register through the registration form, because we need to keep track of the number of people in the class. If you decide after the first class that it’s not for you, you can let us know and we’ll take you off the list with no costs attached.

How to Subscribe

You can subscribe for classes by filling in the form below. Once we have enough subscriptions to fill a class you will get a confirmation e-mail. (Note: this is not the confirmation e-mail you receive on submitting the form). We need a minimum number of subscriptions for the classes to go on. If more people subscribe than fit into a class, we might have a waiting list. Please note that we’d like to ensure the balance between follows and leads, and that we take this into account in trying to fill a class.
