Schedule

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.

Date Class Teachers Description Level
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.

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).

A partner is required for this class. Open to those who’ve completed at least block of level B (and higher).
