2020 COURSES

 

Lindy Hop Cardiff offers 4-week courses every month. These are a unique opportunity to study authentic swing dance technique and styling. Each course will help you to develop a broad repertoire of classic moves with an emphasis on core skills in lead/follow connection, improvisation and jazz rhythms, giving you the confidence to hit the social dance floor in style. All Lindy Hop Cardiff courses are designed and run by Anna Rogers who offers an experienced and friendly approach in all her classes. 

 

Booking online is the best way to secure your spot and helps us to balance numbers in classes. If you want to attend, but can't commit to four successive weeks then just drop Anna a message to discuss your options. 

We've changed the levels for 2020 to broaden your scope for further learning, so please give the descriptions a read before booking and just message Anna if you are unsure which level is for you.
