The Boogie Woogie Dance

Boogie Woogie dance is a fun and energetic dance style that originated from the American Rock ‘n’ Roll/Lindy Hop dancing of the 1950s. It is known for its fast tempo and playful footwork that is based on musical interpretation. Although it is an established competition dance, we focus on the social side of Boogie Woogie in our classes. This means that you’ll learn not only the dance steps but also how to connect with your partner and enjoy the dance together.

Our classes are structured to cater to dancers of all levels. If you’re a beginner, our classes will cover the basics of Boogie Woogie dance, including the footwork, rhythm, and timing. We’ll help you build a strong foundation so you can progress to more advanced steps with confidence. Our intermediate/advanced class will challenge you with new and exciting moves and variations, as well as help you refine your technique and musicality.
