What is Lindy Hop?

What to wear?
When attending classes, the most important thing is to be comfortable and to wear something you can easily move about in - jeans and t-shirt is absolutely fine.
Shoes?
Comfortable every-day shoes are fine when you are just starting out. Make sure you have something which stays securely on your feet (eg. no flip flops!) and which you can spin easily in (very high heels or trainers with sticky soles are not recommended!). After a while, you may want to invest in some dance shoes from the Lindy Hop Shop

Can I drop in?
Sorry these are all progressive courses, designed to be taken as a whole, if you are unable to attend a week you will receive the video review for you to practice on your own and we will help you catch up in the next class

What happens in the unlikely event this course is not for me?
No problem we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If after you attend the first lesson this course is not for you just tell us at the end of the class and we will send you a full refund (including the first week which you can have on us), no quibbles, no fuss. 100% safe.
