Jazz FUNdamentals | 4-week Beginner Block


19 Jun 2024


6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Observatory Community Centre
Rawson St, Observatory

This 4-week beginner series will have you grooving in rhythm to the swing-era jazz that we so love. You’ll learn the essential rhythm, movement, and musicality that form a foundation for the best dances, while also discovering the secret of partner connection that makes swing dance so special. We will guide you through exercises and drills designed to build your confidence and skills, so you can enjoy moving to swing music with ease.

The complete Beginner series includes the following 4-week courses & workshops:

  • Jazz FUNdamentals
  • 6-count & Solo Jazz
  • Swing Out Foundations
  • Charleston Essentials

Once you’re well-versed in the basics of Lindy Hop, which includes content from all these courses, you’ll be invited to take Improver-level classes/workshops at any of our locations. These Beginner courses will be repeated periodically (also as weekend workshops), providing more flexibility on how you’d like to complete them as a whole.

No need to bring a partner: we rotate partners in class. Anyone can lead or follow – roles are not gendered.

PLEASE NOTE: You may join the first class on 5 June, thereafter it’s closed to first-timers.

Cost: R130 per person drop-in (pay on arrival with card, SnapScan or cash); CTS Members get unlimited classes (at their level). More info on our Pricing page.
