Lindy Hop Workshops at Queens Theatre
Blues Weekend, Sweden
with Simon Selmon & Catrine Ljunggren
Full details coming soon!
Simon first started dancing Blues at the Herrang dance camp, Sweden, in the early 90’s and in 1999 went on to win the Blues division of the American Lindy Hop Championships. He has been inspiring students to release their inner dancer ever since.
Blues dance, like Lindy Hop and Swing, originated and evolved out Afro-American rhythms and movement. Simon has taken his inspiration from many different styles of blues, from the early juke joints, rent parties and ballroom blues through to Laminu, ‘dirty dancing’ and even a little tango.
His style of teaching blues is fun and informal. You’ll learn to overcome your inhibitions and connect with both the music and your partner. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced dancer, and whatever your usual style, the skills you will take away from this class will enhance your ability as a dancer.
