Lindy Hop… Online?

This website provides you with a powerful and structured learning tool. It gives you the opportunity to study with world class teachers, be supported by a vibrant community of fellow dancers, and make true progress through the Lindy Hop Roadmap. Find out more about how learning Lindy Hop online can change your life.

A few questions for you:

  • Have you ever wondered what level dancer you were when registering for group classes or workshop weekend?
  • Do you feel like you know how to dance but sense that there are gaps in your education?
  • Do you have friends that want to start dancing, but they don’t know where to begin?
If the answer is yes, then this is for you.

Just because the dance is improvised, doesn’t mean your study path should feel improvised too.

“The Lindy Hop Roadmap,” is a comprehensive curriculum designed to focus your learning and give you a clear, tangible sense of progress. With our Roadmap you will be able to clearly see what we value at each level, from Absolute Beginner all the way through highly Advanced patterns and concepts.
  • 7 amazing levels of course material from Fundamentals through Advanced+
  • Easy to follow curriculum that takes you from start to finish at each level
  • Test outs upon completion of a level
  • Newly released lessons and concepts specifically for the Roadmap
  • A real sense of progress and achievement

I loved how you broke down the technique of connection and let us explore the responsibility of each person to maintain the “magnet hands” connection. It is so much easier to learn and enjoy learning when the flow of the lesson is thought through in all these ways … you guys clearly seem to be people who are refining your crafts as dancers and instructors. – Sam Barnhart, Portland OR

Personal feedback on technique, style, and choreography with Live Coaching Sessions

These sessions bring the community together from all corners of the globe to discuss the dance and to get some face to face time with Michael & Evita. Sometimes members will be given specific challenges, which get reviewed and discussed in the following session. You can be actively involved with questions and video submissions or simply watch and be part of the fun!

Community Dance Forum

There are dancers from all over the world learning here at M&E.com and you can join in on the conversation in out community forum.
It is a place to ask questions, upload videos, and receive feedback. You will also find regular challenges posed by Michael & Evita that are worked on in the Live Training.

Evita and Michael are the best instructors you can wish for! We appreciate about their teaching style that they show various perspectives and approaches to accommodate any type of learner. And they’re so beautiful and passionate at what they do that it is impossible to not have the same passion brought out in their students!  – Edna Biesold – New York

The Benefits of Learning Online?


So what made me sign up? 

ME Membership1. Being able to select material that I think I need to work on … I expect it to be easier to chase marginal gains with your material.

2. I think your courses are shaped in a way that allows me to understand what you think is an essential foundation. Classes are tons of fun … but I sometimes get the feeling that certain exercises which would be largely beneficial to learning aren’t put into focus because maybe it would be too repetitive for students; I like repetition, I think it is essential for learning. You seem to be unafraid to ask your students for doing a few “drills” (see the triple steps videos, kick ball change, etc.).

3. A chance to close the feedback loop. I usually enjoy honest feedback, even if it sounds harsh. From experience, that is what works for me. Unfortunately, feedback is not so easy to gather. I found videos to be exactly that – honest & harsh. They allow me to sometimes spot where I lose balance, getting out of the rhythm etc. So the fact that you had these opportunities to upload videos was convincing.

International Instructors,

in your home.

After more than ten years teaching around the world, we are proud to bring the best of our instruction to you on a regular basis in this incredible online format.

Often times we explain special secrets of the dance in class, but we rarely get to spend much time on these aspects. Now, not only do we get the chance to communicate our methods exactly the way we want, but you also now can watch, and re-watch as many times as you need to understand each move and concept.

Between the two of us, we have over 30 years of combined experience and knowledge that you can call upon at any time. We will  act as your personal tour guides through each course as we explore new moves, technique, variations and show you exercises to help you improve.

scottThey are known as two of the absolute finest teachers, choreographers, and dancers in the entire global Lindy Hop scene and in our world are a household name. I suppose you could call them our very own rock stars except they have exceptional humility about all they do making them even more adored and loved by dancers across the globe. – Scott Cupit (Director of Swing Patrol UK)

FAQ

It’s perfectly fine if you don’t have a partner to still become a member.  Several of our members sign up as individuals and we offer many lessons and exercises that you can do alone.  We also offer solo jazz steps and routines which are fun to learn, strengthen your rhythm and are essential to being a swing dancer.
From your computer, tablet or smartphone.  You have 24/7 access to the videos for the duration of your membership. You can access them 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year and they are located on the courses page.
Membership for our school is never discounted, nor do we have sales on the prices.

There are two reasons for this:

#1 We want to be fair to paying members of M&E.
#2 We believe the membership rates are already representing exceptional value. The equivalent cost for private one-to-one lessons or to have this amount of content on such a regular basis would be well into the thousands and there simply isn’t a price you can put on the quality of the materials and the community on this site.

Yes.  Unless you live in Germany.  For some reason PayPal transactions from Germany do not go through on our site.

If you are not satisfied with your membership we will give you your money back. We are very confident in the quality of these courses and lessons so we are happy to offer this assurance.  So if after 30 days you are unhappy with your experience, we will refund your payment.

The materials in the membership provide years of study.  New lessons will be released every month. And we are currently in production and organizing to create 7 levels of tracked material that will take you through a specific development as a Swing dancer.  We feel that growing as a dancer is a life long endeavor and we hope you join us not only as a student but as a friend.  So it’s difficult to say how long your journey will last.
Basically being an Annual Member means you will end up paying a significantly reduced monthly cost in exchange for your 12 month commitment.  This requires a one time payment in full and for many members it’s easier to have one payment versus monthly transactions.  If you want to continue with us for at least 7 months, it would be cheaper to sign up for an Annual Membership.
Also, only Annual Members have access to the Combo Collection.  This is a gallery of video footage showing us going through small dance routines and movement combinations with a voice over commentary. This is useful for inspiration and also for technique insights for more advanced members. This collection will be growing over time and we will also be adding more bonus areas for Annual Members on the site over the coming year.
