About this Event

We know sometimes it's hard to make a commitment to a dance class series, whether it's because of work or because you're not sure if you'd like the dance. This is for you - the chance to try out swing dancing with no strings attached and no worries.

Just 3 hours on a Saturday afternoon, you get to experience what you would be doing in a short 4 week swing dance series, compressed for you. If you're a bootcamp kind of junkie, this is perfect. If you just prefer to dip your toes in the water and test it a bit, this is a great way to try swing dancing out without commitment.

The 6-count is sometimes called east coast swing and is one of the patterns found in swing dance which originates from Lindy Hop. The patterns are in counts of 6, instead of counts of 4, and is an interesting way to vary the groove as you are dancing to music, which is typically in a 4/4 feel. Despite this strangeness, 6-count is remarkably easy to learn and get used to and many beginners find it easy to get started swing dancing using 6-count patterns.

The music we use comes direct or inspired from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The lush vocals of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald or Anita O'Day, the big band sounds of the Count Basie Orchestra, the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra or the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Sometimes we play the modern stylings of present day small groups like the Hot Sugar Band, the Hot Swing Sextet or the Gordon Webster Band.

B Swing Lindy organizes class, workshops and dance events for lindy hop, solo jazz (also known as authentic jazz and vernacular jazz), 1920s and 30s charlestons, tap dance (rhythm tap and traditional tap) and social swing dancing.
