GET HAPPY & HEALTHY, GET DANCING
Swing Dance is more than just a dance, it’s a way to connect to your body, your mind, history and humanity. It embraces human connection in its purest form, it combines musical therapy with body awareness and it gives an endorphins brain boost like no other activity. However, the biggest win is, that it is just plain dam fun!
As one of the founders of Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning, has once said: “I’ve never seen a Lindy Hopper who wasn’t smiling. It’s a happy dance. It makes you feel good.”
The dance has a big history! It originates from the age of slavery and the Afro-American music culture. It is a dance that is rooted with pain, but always aims to celebrate life.
Swing Philosophy, respects the history and embraces the happiness in our philosophy, or as we like to say: “Solid in your mind, solid in your feet, solid as a rock”
