Lindy Hop Levels

Intermediate

You dance for at least 9 months, taking regular classes and going social dance often.

You know how to dance triples, kicks and walks and change and mix between them. You have learned swingout, tuck-turn, tandem charleston, and you are able to adapt to different partners and tempos.

You’re eager to get more tools to improve your connection and broaden your vocabulary!
If you register for this level you DO NOT need to participate in the level-split.

Intermediate-Advance

You dance for at least 1 year and a half, taking regular classes and going social dance as much as you can.

You are confident with your basics. Connection with the music and your partner are not new to you.

Besides regular classes you might already have taken some weekend workshops or attend solo Jazz classes.

Do not get too attached to this level since there will be a level-split to create two homogeneous groups between all Advanced and Intermediate-Advanced signups.

Advanced

You dance for more than 3 years and take classes and social dance regularly.

You already participated in some international workshops.

You are comfortable with fast teaching pace and you like to be challenged.

Your basics are solid and you are finding your own voice in the dance.

Do not get too attached to this level since there will be a level-split to create two homogeneous groups between all Advanced and Intermediate-Advanced signups.

Solo Jazz Levels

Intermediate

You have done some months to a year of Solo Jazz classes. Basic steps and famous routines like the Tranky Doo and the Shim Sham are familiar to you and you love to dance them!

You look forward to expand your vocabulary and get new ideas about improvisation both solo and with a partner.

* You can register to this level independently of your Lindy Hop level.

Advanced

You have solo jazz classes for at least 1 year, you think more about the rhythms then about the steps you are dancing. You dance Solo Jazz socially, improvising at ease and maybe you even create your own routines.

Join this level for some challenging concepts that can be applied both to Solo Jazz and Lindy Hop.

* You can register to this level independently of your Lindy Hop level.

LEVEL SPLIT

Lindy Hop – Advanced and Intermediate-Advanced signups only

Although you registered for a level, we will still do a level split before the first class on Saturday. The reason is level at workshops is unpredictable, so we decided to do this in order for you to have the best learning environment possible. You will be asked to social dance and the teachers will assign you in one of the two groups. If you really prefer not to participate in this, and stay in the Intermediate-Advanced, you just need to tell us before it starts.

We promise the level split will be quick and we hope stress free. We are here to help you find the perfect spot between comfort and challenge and give you some hugs in case of need!

Class Venue

All the classes will happen in Little Big Apple, our new Studio.

Expect nice floors, Ventilation and Air conditioning.

A Bar/lounge where you can wait for your classes and get some simple drinks and food.

The venue is located right in the outskirts of Lisbon Center, 140m from the Red Metro Line Station Olaias (14min ride from the Airport) and served with several BUS routes right in front: 756793720730208 (nocturne)

Food

Social lunch on Saturday and Sunday:

Grab some soup and other savory treats at the bar, bring your own delicacies from home or purchase your favorite brands at the near supermarket. Let’s just have lunch together while we take some rest from the morning classes. We’ll have our studio available for everybody to sit and chill. We will also try to manage an outdoor alternative… everybody loves picnics right?!

Food on the Venue:

Elsa is a local Lindy Hopper that also works in a vegetarian restaurant. She will be our main chef at the kitchen, pouring her magic onto several savory options so that you can keep your nutrition sharp and your energy level high throughout the days and nights.

If you enjoy her stuff let her know and just grab her for a lovely thank you dance.

Famous Portuguese “Pasteis de Belém”

Lisbon is a city with a sweet tooth, and its most iconic pastry is the palm-size pastel de nata, or egg tart, a creamy custard tart available in pastelarias across the city.

For this event we will get you some freshly made Tarts from THE place to get them, and bring them to the end of the party, so you can boost your sugar levels up after all that dancing.
