The Doghouse's weekly swing dance lessons will be taught by guest teachers with a range of styles and backgrounds. Some of our experienced teachers have been social dancing and teaching for 30+ years, learning directly from the greats like Frankie Manning, Norma Miller, Dawn Hampton, and other lindy hop originators.

Zen Dance

In addition to typical swing dance lessons (intro to Lindy Hop, Lindy Fundamentals, Lindy Fluency & Musicality), we will be introducing a brand new 3D system of learning Lindy Hop called Zen Dance ©.

What is Zen Dance©?

Zen Dance is based on core movements that expand out to included all Lindy-type movement, both old and new. Rather than learning a set series of choreographed steps, you will learn connection, momentum, frame to transition - allowing you to combine all of your Lindy Hop moves into a flow state of uninterrupted, connected movement. 

The intent of Zen Dance is to create a balance between lead and follow, which among other things eliminates arm leading and unnecessary anchoring. Both lead and follow are free to improvise, connect and dance to the music.

What is Flipside Lindy©?

We have created a new advanced dancing method called Flipside Lindy © (which can also be applied to many other dances!)

Combined with stealing & switching partners, we have found that Flipside Lindy can add a whole new, exhilarating dimension to Lindy Hop.
