Welcome to Cats’ Corners swingin’ Wednesday Night Hop at Moriska Paviljongen!

CATS’ CORNER & HEP TOWN

Cats’ Corner är en helt ideell förening som anordnar socialdans på onsdagar i Malmö. Utöver detta anordnar vi workshops, danskurser och sommardans på stranden bland annat. 

Cats’ Corner är en ideell och obunden förening och Heptown är en ekonomisk förening. Vi håller främst till i Malmö och Heptown främst i Lund. Båda håller danskurser, danskvällar och workshops, Heptown har även en shop och ett skivbolag. Vi samarbetar ibland och vi rekommenderar att man blir medlem i båda föreningarna för bästa swingupplevelsen i Skåne.

Cats’ Corner is a completely non-profit organization that is most famous for our social dancing on Wednesdays in Malmö.

 

LINDY HOP

The main dance on Wednesdays’ is Lindy Hop, a swing dance originating in the 30-40s in Harlem, NY. But you are always welcome to dance whatever you like or just hang out

SHAG

The Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the 1920s (though it may have started as early as 1915) and enjoyed huge popularity during the 1930s and 1940s. The term Balboa originally referred to a dance characterized by its close embrace and full body connection. It emphasizes rhythmic weight shifts and lead-follow partnership. Different dancers in the same region at the same time also danced ”swing,” a dance characterized by twists, turns, and open-position movement. Over time, these two dances merged and became collectively known as Balboa. The original Balboa dance is now referred to as Pure Balboa, and the original ”Swing” dance is now referred to as Bal-Swing or L.A. Swing to differentiate it from other types of swing. Because of its emphasis on subtlety and partnering rather than flashy tricks, Balboa (Pure Balboa in particular) is considered more of a ”dancer’s dance” than a ”spectator’s dance.”
