About:

Lindy Hop, known as Jitterbug during World War II, forms an important part of the story of the home front. Our fun and iteractive sessions can incorporate additional activities or discussion dependent on the particular topics being taught. We will attend the session dressed in vintage clothing and can also bring items such as newspapers, propaganda posters, pictures and artefacts to prompt discussion.

Sessions can include:

  • Learning a choreographed Jitterbug routine
  • Learning a popular British wartime dance
  • Children developing their own Lindy Hop inspired moves
  • Examining and discussing artefacts
  • Discussion of the role of dance in lifting morale on the home front
  • Activities and discussion to elicit what children already know or have learnt about World War II
  • Activities and discussion to explore how World War II affected children through evacuation

We have extensive experience in arranging these workshops and will work to your requirements.
