Swing Dance Classes in Udon Thani 9 – 20 December 2019, at Udon Thani Museum

It started 90 years ago in New York, and now swing dancing has conquered the world and is today penetrating even the most remote areas. Four individual dance events have also taken place in Udon Thani, but now has the opportunity come to thoroughly immerse yourself in swing dancing. During two weeks in December I want to invite you to beginner courses i in the swing dances Boogie Woogie and Lindy Hop.

I am the instructor John Treegardener from Germany. Since many years I live in Sweden where I learned the lindy hop in the 80ies, later also the boogie woogie. Now I want to meet you and crank up the swing dance in your city! Welcome all you UT dance and music lovers to my two classes in Boogie Hop and Lindy Hop.

What is Boogie Hop?

Boogie Hop consists of the basic steps of Boogie Woogie in association with fun movements of disco and hiphop. The historic Boogie Woogie was born in the US when white dancers danced Lindy Hop to rock'n'roll music in the 1950s. With Hollywood movies the wild dance spilled over quickly to Europe, where it has since then been danced mainly to rockabilly music. I have now adapted the boogie for pop and rock and reduced it to a pace suitable for beginners. In this class we dance to great songs from 1949 to 2019!

What is Lindy Hop?

AfroAmerican youngsters in New York's Harlem district experimented with the Charleston and Breakaway fad dances at the end of the 1920s and created the first couple dance to jazz music. Their Lindy Hop has until today become the richest and most fun couple dance. It combines countless figures and combinations - but each couple has great freedom in the design of the dance. You will learn many basic moves in this Lindy class, but we will also focus on the important figures of Swingout, Lindy Circle and Charleston.

Mondays to Fridays 9 to 20 December.
7:00 - 8:15 pm Boogie Hop
8:45 – 10:00 pm Lindy Hop

In a couple dance the couple is divided into a leader and a follower. Traditionally, the leaders are men and the followers are women. But today it is free. Please indicate when registering if you want to dance leader or follower.
