Swing Dances with Partner
Swing - Lindy Hop
Lindy Hop is a partner dance whose roots can be traced back to Afro-American dance styles. It was born in Harlem, New York in the 1930s from the Afro-American population who danced the jazz from that era--swing music.

Lindy Hop quickly became popular in the US and it extended to Europe through the professional troupes' shows, films and American soldiers sent to fight in WW1 and WW2.

After a few decades, Lindy hop was put aside for more popular dances such as rock’n’roll. It has become fashionable again around the world, especially in Barcelona, where more and more people are discovering it and falling in love.

Classes are focused on connection between the partners and musicality.

West Coast Swing
El West Coast Swing es un baile en pareja con raíces en el Lindy Hop que apareció en la costa oeste de los Estados Unidos en los años 40. Se caracteriza por movimientos fluidos y una conexión elástica que resulta fundamentalmente de la técnica de extensión y comprensión que se basa en la conexión de pareja. También se caracteriza por bailarse en un área más lineal (slot). Durante el baile, la persona en el rol de líder crea y redirige el momentum de la persona en el rol de seguidor, aunque ésta no hace movimientos en espejo sino que le da respuesta. Dentro de esta dinámica, totalmente basada en la conexión, este baile permite a las dos partes de la pareja improvisar los pasos mientras bailan juntos, destacando por ser un baile con una parte muy importante de aportación creativa por parte de ambos integrantes. El baile parte de unos patrones básicos, que serán el punto de partida para crear variaciones y permitir la improvisación, para jugar con la musicalidad, lo que hace del West Coast Swing uno de los bailes más versátiles que existen. Actualmente, este es un baile extremadamente popular no sólo en los Estados Unidos sino en países vecinos como Francia, Alemania o Reino Unido, entre muchos otros en Europa. Además, el West Coast Swing se ha bailado en cada generación con su propia música, lo que ha provocado una evolución constante y una incorporación de técnicas de muchos estilos diferentes que hace especialmente atractivo este baile, manteniendo su esencia y principios de movimiento, conexión y énfasis en la musicalidad.

Solo Dance of Swing
Swing - Solo Jazz
Solo Jazz/Jazz Steps is an individual dance. It predates Lindy Hop and has come from a variety of different cultural traditions, but mainly from the Afro-American culture of North America. It shares the same name as the bustling city of South Carolina. Its dynamic style and spectacular sense of fun is closely identified with the wild spirit of the 1920's. It had a huge impact on the dance culture of the time, both for the complex coordination it requires and for the difficult steps-- rotation of the feet and waist and the flexing and extending of the arms and knees.

It's danced individually and its main goal is to make music with the feet with the help of a special iron plate--or "tap"--that is attached to the sole.

Contemporany
Contemporary dance is an artistic expression based on classical ballet's technique, but which comprises not-so-rigid movements. It was born as a reaction to the classical forms and probably as a need to more freely express an idea, a feeling or an emotion--just like in classical ballet but with corporal movements typical from the 20th and 21st centuries. The pioneer was I. Duncan, followed by M. Graham, and R. St. Denis, among others. The aims are: to develop the physical potential of each dancer respecting their limits and acting from relaxation and correct body alignment all while maintaining the goal of avoiding pain and harmful corporal habits. The technique is based on work with the body's weight, the correct use of the floor and flexibility. This is achieved by different exercices and choreographies, as the main goal remains the expression of an emotion through the body.
