Lindy Hop

Livello 1Livello 2Livello 3Livello 4Livello 5

Early 30s of the last century. Harlem. African-Americans.
This is the scenario where the LINDY HOP came to life. Since it was not born in dance academies, Lindy Hop has no fixed patterns and binding, unless the structure of swing music. It is influenced by past and contemporary dances (charleston, shag, breakaway etc ...), by improvisations and inventions of the people who used to dance it, but in fact, it has very deep roots that smell like ocean liners, chains and spirituality. Simply said, Lindy Hop is a "street dance" and for this reason there are various methods and schools of thought regarding the teaching of this discipline.
This dance is mainly practiced in couple but includes individual steps too. The LINDY HOP is suitable for everyone, since everyone can adapt it to their own personality. The only indispensable thing is the music which gives it the soul needed to captivate anyone.
Authentic Jazz

Livello 1Livello 2

The origins of ''Authentic Jazz "are to be found in between the late '800 and early '900.
This dance is made of individual steps which combine tap dance, Charleston and other forms of Solo jazz. They need a talented personal interpretation, allowing you play with the rhythm of the music.
Even this dance was born by chance, between dusty shoes and improvised instruments, but has created some of the most famous choreographies of the world of swing (eg. Shim Sham, Tranky Doo or the Big Apple).
Blues

Livello 1Livello 3

Il ballo blues trova le proprie origini nei ritmi e i movimenti africani di fine ‘800 e inizio ‘900, a differenza dello swing non ha mai lasciato le comunità nere e l’intimità dei juke joints e dei luoghi più nascosti della cultura creola, restando per questo una forma di ballo molto meno diffusa e nota.
Così come tanti sono gli stili del blues suonato, altrettanti sono quelli del blues ballato, naturalmente collegato alle emozioni e alle ritmicità della musica stessa. Questo ballo è caratterizzato per l’importanza della comunicazione attraverso micro connessioni del corpo, che fanno da tramite alle emozioni che la musica offre. Questo ballo permette di dare spazio alla creatività, alla libertà di espressione, all’interpretazione musicale e alla possibilità di giocare con le emozioni e con la musicalità.
