Lindy Hop: Dust off the cobwebs and get ahead

A great workshop to start the new year with confidence, rhythm and a new focus. Whether you are feeling rusty or inspired to get ahead in 2019, this is your chance to really wrap your head around the fundamentals of Lindy Hop. Each session will start with the basic rhythm and then move you along with the aim of giving you confidence to get out on the social dance floor. If you’re feeling ready to jump from a beginner class to an intermediate level, this workshop may give you that confidence to step up. The workshop promises a chilled out session where we have some laughs along the way .. it is only January 2! 🙂

Scott Cupit is the co-founder of Swing Patrol and teaches all over Europe and in 2015 won the UK teacher of the year award. With Scott in Melbourne for a 3 month stint we are pleased to lock him in for this workshops.
We love this footage of Scott dancing with Jean Veloz

Arrianne O’shea teaches weekly for Swing Patrol Brighton in the UK and is visiting Australia this summer. A web developer by day and a talented teacher and dancer, Arrianne has had an incredible swing dancing adventure in recent gigs. As an original and key member of the award winning London troupe Brat Pack, Arrianne has won European titles with her team at events such as Savoy Cup and the European Swing Dance Championships.

Arrianne has also performed for Swing Patrol at spectacular events, such as the very special performance at 10 Downing Street. Arrianne has recently been teaching at a range of Lindy Hop weekenders around Europe in Leiden Netherlands, Swing Mazo Spain, and was one of the teachers at the first ever Lindy Hop workshop on the Isle of Man. Arrianne is probably best known for her aerials and teaches aerials regularly in London and Brighton. You won’t find Arrianne on FB, but you will find her often at a Pokemon battle. We are pleased to have Arrianne guest teaching in Melbourne.
