If you want to work on what you learned in class, please feel free to make use of the practice time. There will always be a teacher available if you have any questions or need some advice. Plus you will get to know better your fellow dancers!
The following information is a guide only, to help you decide the course for which you should register. We will, however, review the registrations and possibly recommend that you move to a different level, based upon your perceived progress and in order to keep a balanced lead-follow ratio. Please try to be honest with yourself when you register for your chosen level! If you have any questions at any point of the registration process, you are very welcome to ask the teachers for advice.
Lindy A (absolute beginner) This is a course for Lindy Hop complete beginners and for those who did not attend enough of the Lindy A classes in Spring 2017 and need to continue to focus on their basics (indeed, even advanced dancers should also always work on their basics!). The aim of this course is to get you on the social dance floor as soon as possible, by learning the standard steps and figures and some basic and more interesting Lindy Hop technique.
Lindy B (beginner-intermediate) This is a course for lindy hop beginner-intermediate dancers, for example those who have been dancing in Lindy A during the current season of 2017 or those in the current Lindy B who did not attend enough of the classes and feel they need to repeat the material to solidify their technique, footwork etc. You come social dancing whenever you can. This course will expand your repertoire of figures and footwork variations, as well as going deeper into the details of Lindy Hop technique.
Lindy C (intermediate) This is a course for lindy hop intermediate dancers, for example those who have been dancing in Lindy B or Lindy C during the current season of Spring 2017, who are comfortable with their social dancing and would like to continue working on their technique and figures. The aim is to improve your technique to the point where you can tackle the more difficult figures and variations and use them on the social dance floor. You come social dancing whenever you can and perhaps have been travelling to dance in Lindy Hop scenes outside Nijmegen.
Focus group This is a group for our more experienced dancers, having danced Lindy Hop for 1-2 years or more (most of the participants will be teaching for us already). This will not be a taught course, rather a time for you to get together and work on what you would like to do. However, there will be one or more teachers available to guide you and give advice when you want it. The sessions will be run with the guidance of the teachers, but it will be you who decides what you want to do! You will register for Lindy C as well, but then get your participation in the focus group at no extra cost.
