Bristol Swing Riot, Swing Dancing Classes
Tuesdays, 7 to 10pm
Easton Community Centre
Bristol Swing Riot has been teaching Lindy Hop and solo jazz in Bristol for over 10 years, and we have a range of classes – from total beginner to advanced.
Tuesday night classes at Easton Community Centre are for Level 1 to 3 dancers. If you have never learned Lindy Hop before or want a refresher of the fundamentals this is the right level for you – please see the Beginners page for suitable classes
Level 3 – 19:00 to 20:00
Level 2 – 20:00 to 21:00
Level 1 – 21:00 to 22:00
Level 1: This level is suitable for you if you have completed one of our beginners courses, or a similar foundation course elsewhere. You should be familiar with 6-count and 8-count footwork and fundamental moves such as tuck turn, send out, change places/pass by.
Level 2: This level is suitable for you if you are comfortable and confident with linking moves and social dancing to songs with different tempos. You should have basic grasp of swingouts and lindy Charleston.
Level 3: This level is suitable for you if you have been dancing regularly and frequently for a few years and you want to expand your repertoire with more detailed concepts and ideas within lindy hop. We’ll expect you to be comfortable with swingouts and the classic variations, tandem Charleston, and some solo jazz.
The classes are all drop-in (so you can come along any week) but are taught in themed blocks. For more info about what’s being taught in classes and prices, please check the Bristol Swing Riot Facebook events or sign up to the monthly newsletter on the Bristol Swing Riot Contact page.
