Classes

Lindy Hop

*Käpsele: You have been attending regular Lindy Hop classes for at least a year, and you experience no problems in following/leading the moves which you have already learned. You should be able to dance the following figures: 8-Count Basic, Swing Out, Texas Tommy, Hand-to-Hand Charleston, Tandem Charleston. With regard to the SwingZeit dancing classes that are held at the university (Hochschulsport Tübingen), you should at least be able to follow the class contents of Level 2.

*Heilig's Blechle: You have regularly attended Lindy Hop classes for more than 2 years. In addition to that, you have already collected dancing experience at a festival or exchange, in which you have also participated in Intermediate/Advanced dancing classes. With regard to the SwingZeit dancing classes that are held at the university (Hochschulsport Tübingen), you should have successfully completed Level 3.

Solo Jazz

*Guadsla: Open Level

*Blombaziahr: This course is aimed at all those who have already gained experience with solo jazz. Routines, such as the Shim Sham, should be well known and be danced with ease. But most importantly, of course, is that you bring a nice degree of motivation of doing your own thing and realizing yourself in solo dancing.

Code of conduct

We all love to dance and to share our passion for dancing. However, for everyone to have a nice evening and to truly enjoy themselves, we ask you to keep the following things in mind:

  • If you like to dance, show initiative and ask a person for a dance. Please respect that everyone has the right to politely decline your invitation – for any reason. No hard feelings!
  • Some of the spaces we dance in are relatively small; please take care of each other and pointed heels or sharp-edged shoes. If you bump into someone, apologizes and make sure the other person is okay.
  • We each have individual dance styles. If you're not explicitly asked for feedback, please do not comment on or criticize another person's dancing. Dangerous maneuvers and unpleasant or even painful connections are, of course, exception, and require feedback. Everyone should feel comfortable!
  • For this reason, please also reserve your aerials for performances and jam-cicles only! Even if you know your partner well and even if you have practiced air-steps before, aerials on the social dancefloor are pretty dangerous as you cannot control the space around you.
  • Dancing all night is a sweaty matter. Think about whether you need a change of clothes.
  • We're all here to have fun. Enjoy your night and do your best so others can enjoy themselves as well. If there is anything that doesn’t feel right to you, please reach out to the SwingZeit team.
