WHAT IS LINDY HOP?

Lindy Hop is Fun!

Lindy hop is a partner dance that emerged during the 1930s and 40s in Harlem, New York alongside Big Band swing and jazz. Just like the blues, this art form rose from the Afro American community and eventually became mainstream, spreading to Europe and the rest of the world during World War II.

 

A joyful and improvisational dance, it is a wonderful way to connect with a partner and with music. A few simple guidelines are all you need to get you started and swinging out!

ABOUT US

SwingStation is brought to you by a passionate team who is excited to share the wonders of dancing Lindy Hop with more people!  Come and join us!

In 2015 Timbre Music Academy joined forces with lindy teachers to create Lindy Live @ The House of Timbre, offering classes and weekly parties.  In Jan 2019, this partnership blossomed into SwingStation, thanks to the generous support of Timbre Music Academy. At the beautiful venue of Timbre X @ The Substation, we taught lindy hop classes and organised weekly parties to the live jazz music of our partner, High Notes Music.



 

SwingStation nights became a mainstay of the lindy hop scene in Singapore and in early 2020, a sprung dance floor was added to enhance the experience even further.

  Unfortunately, activities were paused in 2019 due to Covid-19.

 

The recent easing of restrictions in 2022 means that the SwingStation team can resume teaching classes and social dancing, in safe and managed conditions.

LIM SING YUEN

Sing started lindy hopping in 1988 in London’s Jitterbugs club. Since then, she has won countless of competitions including the US Open, the American Swing Dance Championships and the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown in New Orleans. In 1996 she started teaching Lindy Hop in Singapore and has grown the scene to become one of the most vibrant in the world. She teaches at workshops and competes in Sweden, USA and all over Asia. Sing is committed to sharing the Afro American history and culture of jazz and lindy to all dancers! 

TAN HONG WEE

Hong Wee started dancing in 2000, when his wife decided they needed some social life. (He found Lindy Hop both exciting and enriching; while his wife found Korean drama.) Finding joy in connecting and creating, Hong Wee wants to make Lindy sociable and fun. Live music, casual drinks and good friends make for an awesome evening!

ALEXANDRA LAU

Alex started dancing Lindy Hop in 2013 and immediately fell in love with this happy, infectious dance.  To her, being being able to laugh, whilst connecting with her partner and the music are the best things about Lindy Hop.  The most joyful dances involve those with a live band, where the band and the dancers create energy and give inspiration to each other.  She believes the world will be happier if more people danced Lindy Hop and wishes for everyone to give it a go, even those who think they have two left feet!
