Levelbeschreibung / Leveldiscription

Allgemeiner Kommentar / General comment

Wir wissen wie schwer es ist sich selbst richtig einzustufen, besonders da unterschiedliche Szenen und Workshops Niveaus unterschiedlich beschreiben. Um euch Hilfestellung zu geben haben wir die nachfolgenden Beschreibungen erstellt. Falls Ihr im Unterricht unsicher seid, stehen euch die Lehrer jederzeit zur Verfügung. Den besten Rat, den wir euch geben können ist, der, dass es nicht darauf ankommt bei jedem Workshop ein Niveau höher zu steigen. Es kommt beim Tanzen darauf an, wie gut ihr mit eurem Partner tanzt und wieviel Spaß es macht, mit euch zu tanzen. Wenn ihr besser werden wollt, profitiert ihr am ehesten von der Einstufung im richtigen Niveau, nicht im höchsten.

We know it is hard to put yourself in the right level especially as levels have different meanings in different cities and communities. To make it easier for you to pick the appropriate level we created the following level descriptions. If you are still in any doubt you can ask any of the teachers for a recommendation. The best advice we can give you is to not rush to get to a higher level. If you dance with someone it is not important what class level you take, but rather how well you dance and how much fun it is to dance with you. If you want to become better you will benefit the most in the correct and not in the highest level.

Gruppe / Group 1 (3 Stunden / 3 hours)

Du nimmst seit mindestens 9 Monaten regelmäßig an Lindy Hop-Kursen teil und kennst die Grundfiguren (6-Count, 8-Count, Pass-by, Tuck Turn, Lindy Circle, Texas Tommy, Swing out,...). Die Basics gelingen schon gut; Stretch, Compression und Frame sind keine Fremdwörter für dich und du bist bereit für neue Variationen. Am Social Dance nimmst du regelmäßig teil und suchst erste Herausforderungen. Auf (internationalen) Workshops tanzt du im Intermediate Level.

You've been dancing Lindy Hop for at least 6 months and you are familiar with the basic moves (6-Count, 8-Count, Pass-by, Tuck Turn, Lindy Circle, Texas Tommy, Swing out,…) Now you feel ready for variations of these moves and new challenges. This would be eqivalent to an intermediate level.

Gruppe / Group 2 (6 Stunden / 6 hours)

Du tanzt schon länger Lindy Hop (min. 1,5 - 2 Jahre) und bist lindyfiziert ;-). Häufiger Social Dance ist aus deinem Leben nicht mehr weg zu denken. Die Grundfiguren sind dir vertraut und über dein Footwork musst du nicht mehr viel nachdenken. Du verstehst was mit "Flow" gemeint ist und Variationen oder komplexere Figuren sind kein Problem für dich. Auch schnelle Songs halten dich nicht mehr von den Tanzfläche ab. Auf (internationalen) Workshops tanzt du in Intermediate / Advanced Kursen.

You've been dancing Lindy Hop for a while and you don't have to think about your feet anymore. You know by what is meant by "flow", variations of the basic moves and more complex moves are much used in your social dance and faster songs are really fun to dance to! At international workshops you usually participate on Intermediate/Advanced levels.

Gruppe / Group 3 (6 Stunden / 6 hours)

Du tanzt seit Jahren Lindy Hop und kannst dir ein Leben ohne Tanzen nicht mehr vorstellen. Rhythmusvariationen und verspieltes Footwork sind natürlicher Teil deines Tanzes und du genießt es, die Musik im Tanz entsprechend zu interpretieren. Auch bei schneller Musik bleibst du entspannt. Es sind nicht nur die Fancy Moves, die dein Interesse wecken, sondern auch die Technik, um die Feinheiten des Tanzes und die Kommunikation zwischen den Tänzern auf ein neues Level zu heben. Auf internationalen Workshops bist du regelmäßig zu Gast - dort tanzt du im advanced Level.

You have been dancing Lindy Hop for several years. You like to play around with rhythm variations and footwork and like to interpret the music while dancing. Even fast music can't keep you off the dancefloor. On international workshops you are part of the advanced level.

Solo Jazz (1,5 Stunden / 1,5 hours) 

Du hast erste Solo Jazz-Erfahrungen gesammelt oder bist fasziniert von coolen moves & Co & So? Herzlich willkommen beim Solo Jazz Workshop, bei dem wir von unserem internationalen Trainer Daniel lernen dürfen. Erfahrungen im Solo Dance unterstützen die Erfolgserlebnisse.

You've got some experiences in Solo jazz or are fascinated by all these cool moves? Welcome to the 'Solo Jazz Workshop" with Daniel. Solo dance experiences will support the dance process, right?

Genia and Joe

 

Genia’s dancing story begun when she was 6 years old. Lindy Hop she met in 2006. She danced some boogie-woogie (competing, teaching). Also she is a big fun of blues. The dancing way keeps her excited, she finds out  something new and really interesting all over time. She hopes “this way will never reach the final destination :) “.

Genia was teaching in Russia, Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, France, Belgium, Taiwan; won many competitions in Ukraine, also LHCC in Vilnius in 2012, strictly competition in Dragon swing 2012, fast feet competition in Herrang 2018. Since 2015 Genia is a part of the project Shiny Stockings Chorus Line in Kiev. During the last time was involved in many great routines and 4 great shows “The Jazz Age” with Shiny Stockings Chorus Line and Kyiv Rhythm Kings band.

Dancing is an important part of her life. Such attitude to dance makes her not only good dancer, but also responsible and attentive teacher. Mostly her classes are concentrated in how to connect dance more with music and enjoy your dancing. It's mix smoothness of blues, energy of lindy hop and music feeling inside of yourself.

 

Joe hails from New York and Berlin. A classically trained pianist, and a civil rights lawyer by day, he discovered swing dancing after being dragged to a speakeasy in New York City. He's been addicted ever since. He holds numerous first and second place titles in Lindy Hop and Balboa from events including All Balboa Weekend, ILHC, Camp Hollywood, Camp Jitterbug, and Music City Shuffle.
