Lindy Hop in the Lakes

A weekend of Lindy Hop workshops, tasters and social dancing on the edge of the beautiful Lake District in Penrith, Cumbria. 

Step up your Lindy Hop with International teachers David Afonso and Andreia Freixo (Portugal).

David began teaching in 2011, and has since become an international teacher, mainly due to his aptitude to understand the fundamentals of good movement (dancing) and explaining it in an graspable and applicable way. David is an addicted social dancer. You’ll rarely see him not dancing while there is groovy swing music playing. He’s also a geek, that cannot avoid himself of deconstructing the nuclear bio-mechanics and rhythmic structure of the dance and music. He has taught at many UK and European events such as DJAM, Lindy Shock, Smokey Feet and Swing Summit. Find out more here:

Andreia fell in love with Lindy Hop in 2011 and has been dancing ever since. David and Cátia were her first teachers and she became part of their team in 2015. When teaching, she strives to to give short, comprehensive and to the point instructions so that students can have time to practice and to absorb the concepts demonstrated during class. The true enjoyment of giving classes, however, comes from seeing students finding their own rhythm, movement and expression and becoming more and more confident dancers over time.
