THE SWING FREAKS


Spoznali smo se aprila leta 2014, ko je bila izpeljana prva obalna swing delavnica, nakar smo se pričeli sestajati na lastno pobudo. Sprva smo vsak petek zvečer vadili v koprskem lokalu Zanzibar, kakšno soboto tudi v Loggi, poleti pa na plaži. V vmesnem času smo pričeli obiskovati tečaje v Ljubljani, festivale doma in v tujini, skozi katere se intenzivno izobražujemo in širimo svoj plesni besednjak. Prek vaj, sproščenega druženja in organizacije prvih plesnih večerov smo prišli na idejo, da bi svoje navdušenje nad swingom delili tudi z ostalimi prebivalci primorskih mest, zato smo s tem namenom ustanovili plesno društvo.

Novo poglavje obalne swing zgodbe se je pričelo februarja 2015, ko smo začeli z rednimi tečaji, ki trenutno potekajo v Dijaškem domu v Kopru!

Pridite in zaplešite z nami! :)

Lindy Hop

Lindy Hop is a dance from the 1930s that has its origin in Jazz music and mostly developed in Harlem, New York City. It was born out of a fusion of several dances, like the Charleston, Breakaway, Solo Jazz and Tap Dance. Lindy Hop is an improvised partner dance that involves elements of solo dancing and leaves extensive room for creativity and musicality. The quintessential step is called the “swingout”.

The swing hype came to an end and Lindy Hop seemed to be buried in oblivion but, thanks to a few committed European and American dancers, Lindy Hop celebrated its big revival in the 1980s.

Lindyhop is predominantly a social dance and improvisation in the dance is an essential part of this. It is danced in couples and the two roles are called "leader" and "follower". Traditionally leaders were men and followers were women but the modern interpretation is flexible.

Today there are thriving communities throughout the world, and Lindy Hop can be found in almost every large European or American city.
