Would You Like To Learn How To Dance From Scratch And Feel More Confident?

Would you like to learn a few simple moves and discover the tips and tricks that will help you pick up the steps more easily? Here is a step-by-step course with simple practice moves and clear explanations so you can learn to move with ease. Learning these techniques on this online class will also prepare you for in-person swing dance classes so you don't:

...Feel self-conscious
...Feel lost because the class is full of experienced dancers
...Feel like you are trying to keep up with a class that is moving too fast

...So you can enjoy dancing with confidence!

The course is definitely right for you if:

You are an enthusiastic beginner starting from scratch, ready to learn from the beginning instead of wasting time trying to figure it out on your own or learning routines you cannot remember. Our course teaches you the very simple basics you need to know in bite-sized chunks that a complete beginner can easily get to grips with. Each lesson is about 5-10 minutes long.

To get you started, here are . . . .

15 Lessons which include:

  1. How to find the pulse and rhythm
  2. Charleston fundamentals
  3. Lindy Hop fundamentals
  4. Mix it up – 6 & 8 beats, Charleston & Lindy Hop
  5. How to dance through a whole song without running out of moves

I will be adding more to this as you progress, such as:

  1. How to connect with the floor
  2. How to connect with music
  3. How to connect with your partner

Your Instructor


I am Joo-Lee Stock and I LOVE teaching and dancing and music and . . . . I am a qualified teacher! Prior to starting up Lindy Jazz, I was a performing arts director in a secondary school. I now spend almost every day dancing and teaching adults with no dance experience to social dance. I am also a qualified coach and understand the problems that stop so many people from enjoying the experience of learning to dance.

It’s been my passion for many years to share my skills so that as many people as possible could experience the fun of learning to dance. So, in 2007, I introduced swing dance classes to the northeast of England through my community dance company, Lindy Jazz. It started as a single class in Durham and soon became a whole series of events including DJam, an annual dance festival attended by over 350 dancers from all over the world. My work also includes community dance exercise classes for the NHS through their ‘Arts into Wellbeing’ project as well as teaching actors with no dance experience to dance in only a few hours for TV dramas such as Joe Maddison’s War starring Robson Green & Kevin Whateley and United starring David Tennant.

All this has given me a huge of amount of experience in transforming people’s experience of learning to dance. So, if you’re thinking you can’t dance and have ‘Two Left Feet’, or you're finding it hard to learn when you’ve been to a dance class or if you are getting nervous about joining a dance class for the first time and wondering how you are going to get through it without stepping on someone's toes then I promise I can help to get you dancing.
