HOSTED & CREATED BY Nikki White
Dax Hock and Sarah Breck were traveling the world teaching workshops 30+ weekends a year…then they had a baby and everything changed. In order to spend more time at home, this international couple opened the Lindy Loft where you can now get some of the worlds best swing dance instruction year round locally here in Los Angles.
Dax & Sarah have been teaching, competing, social dancing, performing and coaching for the past 15 years. They are two of the most experienced dancers on the circuit who are featured instructors at the worlds most prestigious swing dance camps. In addition they have performed on Dancing with the Stars and play the lead roles in the feature film Ctrl+Alt+Dance, a new indie film built around swing dancing and Lindy Hop.
We believe in social dancing and everything we emphasize in our classes is designed to make social dancing more fun, interesting, comfortable, musical, and creative. Learning to dance should be both fun and continuously stimulating. We have a tiered motivation system allowing beginner students to feel more comfortable and advanced students to get more of a push to improve. We emphasize superior technique, connection, rhythm and movement over just doing learning moves.
The Lindy Loft is LA’s only full time Swing Era Dance studio. We teach all things that swing and our venue is fully dedicated to Dancing, Fashion, Social Dancing, Music, History, and Swing Culture. We want the Lindy Loft to be a place where people can come learn, dance, play music, discover, meet and much more.
