We proudly announce our second edition of the “Dancers in Residence” – program with:

Christian Frommelt & Jenny Shirar



“What thrills me about Christian and Jenny is their dedication to local styles in St. Louis. As Lindy becomes more universal and more dominant, it also is becoming homogeneous and destructive to regional styles. By focusing on St. Louis, and taking to original dancers, Christian and Jenny are conserving the detail, the grit, and the meaning of the dance–and they are also great, great teachers!”
Nathan Bugh

With this words we think everything is said. It is our mission with the DIR-program to support Dancers with a special style and unique access to the core of the dance. In this context Christian Frommelt and Jennifer Shirar were often recommended by other professional and international Lindy Hop Instructors. We are glad to have them here for two month to inspire the Viennese and European scene.

Pre-Intermediate-Intermediate / Level B:

I have enthusiastically been dancing Lindy Hop regularly for more than a half year but less than a year and know just about how a swing out works. I know 6-count-basics, 8-count-basics, and charleston basics, and maybe even some fancy variations.
Start: 21. January 2014,
Tuesdays: 18:45 – 20:15 Uhr

Intermediate / Level C:

I’ve been dancing Lindy Hop for more than a year, both in trainings and social events, feel good about my musicality in dance, I freely combine and vary the moves I’ve learned.
Start: 21. January 2014,
Tuesdays, 20:30 – 22:00

Intermediate-Advanced / Level D:

I dance a lot and have already been to a couple of international workshops, I can dance to fast tempos (185 bpm+) and sometimes invent my own variations while dancing.

Thursdays, 19:30 – 21:00

Advanced-Advanced+ / Level E-Z:

I dance a lot and don’t think much about steps anymore while social dancing. When the tempo gets high my dancing doesn’t get hectic, I work a lot on the quality and fine-tuning of the basics.
