Fairly new, Nick was stung by the Lindybug two year ago. He starts taking classes in 2016 at several schools simultaneously, taking workshops whenever he could and being an (hyper)active social danser in Belgium and at international events.
He believes in continuously developing your own style on the dancefloor, with an eye for improvisation, originality and fun! Nick especially likes theatrics, breaks and influences from other styles in the dance.
It all started with a fifties Fiat 500, since then she lives a life of vintage passion: from clothing to hairstyling, furniture and music. So it wasn’t long until Verdiana discovered the Lindy drug during her work as a vintage hairdresser for Radio Modern. Once she got the bounce in her bones, her life changed completely. You can regularly see her popping up at social dances in Belgium and attending international dance camps and workshops, catching the eyes of the innocent bystanders with her Italian style lindy moves. When it comes to swing dancing, for Verdiana it’s all about having fun and moving your body to the music. Musicality is the key for two individuals to become one on the dance floor.
This level is meant for those who are absolutely new to lindy hop and are about to learn the dance’s first basic steps. You don’t need any previous dance experience.
You will learn the charleston, triple steps, groove walks, kick steps on basic patterns like send-out, tuck-turn, change places, circle, etc…
You will learn how to lead or follow these different patterns.
The main focus of this course is to discover and dance the Lindy Hop and allow you to go to social dances and have fun!
