The school year at SwingStreet goes from September – July. During this period we have 3 blocks (12 weeks each) of classes. Seperate registration is required for each of these 3 blocks of classes. During the period July – September, we typically offer summer classes which are theme based and are executed in a drop in format.
We’re currently in summer!
From July 19 until August 30 we offer drop-in summer classes of 2 hours long at our Swingstreet West location! (Borgerstraat 112).
Classes will be from 20:00 til 22:00 and cost 15 euros.
You won’t necessarily need a partner for any of the classes except for aerials, however we’d prefer it if you do find one! so we can keep the waiting period in between partners to a minimum.
*Note: there’s 2 classes on the 2nd of august: absolute beginners and tandem mania.
They’ll take place at the same time.
|19/07||Short & Intensive solo routine||Yara||In this class you will learn a very short, fast and fun solo charleston routine. Get ready to sweat 🙂||Dancers from all levels are welcome to join but please know that it will be a challenging class focussed on fast steps and rhythms. Great if you already feel comfortable with Solo Jazz and Charleston.|
|26/07||Swingstreet Summer Social||–||A little social for all who are not in herrang! Let’s have our own party! Come by for some dance practise or questions, Prav & Yara will be hanging around.|
|02/08||Absolute Beginner Class Lindy Hop||Dolinde & Gary||Ever seen or heard about lindy hop, and can’t wait to try this fun & energetic dance yourself? this is the right date, time & place! Here we will teach you the basics of lindy hop, including footwork, body position and how to lead and follow the dance.||No experience required!|
|02/08||Tandem Mania II||Yara & Praveen||Remember that fun class from last summer? The one where Praveen and Yara started teaching together? In this class we will teach you new Tandem Charleston variations. We can’t wait 🙂
It would be great if you can bring a partner so we have a nice balance in leaders and followers.
|You should be comfortable with the connection in the Tandem Charleston, know a basic entry- and exit.|
|09/08||Balboa||Yara & Praveen||It’s time to go back to the pretty mini shuffely steps that Balboa brings. Let’s recap what we have done in the mini course and make sure you are ready for a new block of Balboa classes. Next to recapping steps we will also teach new moves and variations.||Open for dancers who have followed 4 or more Balboa classes (mini course).|
|16/08||Absolute Beginner Class Lindy Hop||Praveen & TBD||Ever seen or heard about lindy hop, and can’t wait to try this fun & energetic dance yourself? this is the right date, time & place! Here we will teach you the basics of lindy hop, including footwork, body position and how to lead and follow the dance.||No experience required!|
|23/08||Aerials||Dolinde & Gary||Occasionally within swingdancing (mainly in jams and performances) dancers take to the sky! In this class we’ll teach you a couple of acrobatic moves commonly performed in swingdancing. Make sure you bring loose & comfortable clothing (especially long-sleeved shirts and flat shoes). A partner is required for this class.||Open to those who’ve completed at least block of level B (and higher).|
|30/08||Back to the classics||Dolinde & Praveen||Let’s dance the way Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, the Congaroos and the Nicholas Brothers used to dance! We’ll be looking at, and doing some moves from the old days.||Students who’ve completed a block of level B and higher.|
