The Chase Festival is all about digging into the vintage clips and drawing inspiration from them. In each class, your teachers show their favourite clips to share their source of inspiration with you – taking the best from the old days and bringing it into the now.

Who could ask for anything more


The inspiration song of the Chase Festival’s 2016 edition is featured in this vintage clip with Gene Kelly from the movie “An American in Paris”. It’s playfulness and interaction with the children, singing while dancing, and creating a rhythmical game is something that Lindy hop likes to express just as much. Many of your classes will focus on exactly this: how to train and maintain good rhythmical movements during a Lindy Hop social dance while being very playful and musical together with your partner.
