Reading time: 1 minute

“Dance beautiful basics and don’t be afraid to be repetitive.”

Sharon Davis visited us from London, where she runs her own dance school JazzMAD, to teach a weekend full of Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz. She has been studying these dances for almost 20 years
now.

What makes a good swing dancer, be it follower or leader?

1) Have fun. Be a social dancer and have a good time.
2) It’s a 2-way conversation. Be present and involved in the dance. Remember that you dance with your partner.
3) Listen to your partner and the music.
4) It’s not about the moves, but about simple things done perfectly. So, dance beautiful basics and don’t be afraid to be repetitive.
