Lindy Hop Essentials


February Classes

UWM Peck School of the Arts - Mitchell Building - Room 335
 


Lindy Hop Essentials: Learn to Lindy or spruce up your technique on Mondays in February with Henry and Kirsten Boeh, who will be teaching 4 weeks of Lindy Hop technique, and essential moves. If you've never lindy hopped before, this will be a great introduction to the dance, and even if you are an old pro, a return to the fundamentals will strengthen your core lindy skills.
 




New Year, New Space!
Movin' on up from the East Side to.....well, still the East Side!  Our new digs at 
3203 N Downer Avenue--NW corner of Downer and Kenwood, or just east of the Union if landmarks are easier on your brain than addresses--are less than two miles north of our former location, and we think you'll love it!  A climate-controlled dance studio with mirrors?!?  Yes, please!  There's plenty of street parking available nearby in the evenings, or park in the garage under the Union if you prefer.

Aerials and Airsteps!


 Join Henry and Kirsten for the last BCH class at Summerfield Church!

 

Henry and Kirsten Boeh are excited to get your feet off the ground with BCH's last class at Summerfield -we'll be jumping with some  air-steps and aerials! Warm up the winter weather and learn how to successfully perform frog jumps, the kip, and a jump dip.

Please note, these moves are not appropriate for social dancing, and require jumping and lifting. If you would feel more comfortable with a familiar lead/follow that you trust, you may want to come with a partner for this class. Rotation will be optional. 

Dress for success in clothes that let you move easily. Consider bringing shoes that are comfortable to jump around in.
