Dance Styles


Here are some of the dance styles we do


Rock n Roll

"Rock'n'Roll" is a very athletic, competitive form of dance that originated from Lindy Hop. It was also in the movie Grease. 

Unlike Lindy Hop, however, it is a choreographed dance designed for performance. 

It is danced by both couples and groups, either all-female or four to eight couples together. This is normally a very fast and physically demanding dance.

Swing

"Swing dance" is most commonly known as a group of dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s-1950s, although the earliest of these dances predate "swing era" music. 

The best known of these dances is the lindy hop, a popular partner dance that originated in Harlem in 1927 and is still danced today.

If you already know how to Rock'n'Roll lets spice up the dance style and come and learn swing, you'll enjoy the fun!



Lindy Hop

"Lindy Hop" is an American dance that evolved in Harlem, New York City in the 1920s and 1930s and originally evolved with the jazz music of that time.

Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakway and charleston. 

It is frequently described as a jazz dance and is a member of theswing dance family.
