The Dance Styles We Teach

Lindy Hop (Swing)

Origin 1930's

When someone says “swing dance”, Lindy Hop is likely what they’ve got in mind – the energetic partner dance from the old films, featuring well dress folk with great hair and even greater dance steps!

Lindy Hop is a fun, irreverent, and dynamic dance with a strong focus on connection and communication.

Balboa

Origin – 1930's

In the ballrooms of 1930s Balboa Island, California, the jazz was fast and hot and the dance floors were tightly packed.

With beats per minute sitting high and space per person at a premium, Balboa was born: an energetic dance with intricate footwork, a close connection and elegant lines.

Charleston

Origin – 1920's

The roaring twenties were a decade of decadence, rebellion, glamour and social change – and at the forefront, leading the way was the Charleston.

It was the biggest dance craze in history! The Charleston turned all the accepted rules of dance upside down and inside out; seen as wild, thrilling, rebellious, and even dangerous – but all that aside, it’s a heck of a lot of fun!

Blues

Origin – 1910's

The lights are low, it’s the end of the night and the party’s moved from the hectic jumping jazz of the ballrooms to the houses of Harlem.

The rent parties, the speakeasies, the back alley dive bars and dingy saloons, where the bootleg liquor gets passed around and the music gets real slow – that’s where you find the sounds of the blues.

Tap

Origin – 1840's

What could be better than stomping your feet and making a lot of noise? Stomping your feet and making a lot of noise with style!

The iconic dance of vaudeville and musicals, tap dancing is one of the most widely recognised, entertaining and above all fun styles of dance around. Come along and follow in the footsteps of Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!
