Lindy Hop Master Class

Lindy Hop originated in Harlem in the 1920s from a mixture of Charleston, tap and other dances, when it became clear that it was impossible to dance to new types of jazz as before. Soon swing grew out of it and, a little later, rock and roll, and in Europe it was called boogie-woogie. These and other details can be learned at the master class by Marina Pereleshina and Valentin Ognev and at the same time learn the basics of this classical dance. 

Time: 18:00
