Rhythm Boost: workshops with Ursula Ader

We are very happy that Ursula Ader will come to Rotterdam to inspire us on the 8th and 9th of December!

About Ursula

Ursula is the founder of the Münster swing dance scene where she inspires her students on a weekly basis, however she also teaches throughout Germany and internationally. Before her Lindy Hop career, Ursula was a professional singer and tap dancer.

Now building upon a wealth of experience in Lindy Hop, Authentic Jazz and Tap, it is fair to say: rhythm is her business! Ursula will share her knowledge with us for a full weekend working where we'll be working on our rhythms in many different ways. Don't miss out!

Schedule & level descriptions

There would be no Jazz without rhythm and therefore rhythms are an incredibly important aspect of Lindy Hop and Jazz dancing. They will be the focus of this weekend!

Saturday 8th of Dec.  
12:00 - 13:00 Tap for Lindy Hoppers
13:15 - 14:15  Solo Jazz
15:15 - 17:15  Invitational
Sunday 9th of Dec.  
12:00 - 13:00 Boost your rhythms: rhythmical exercises
13:15 - 14:15 Body drumming
15:15 - 17:15 Blue and Above


Blue and above (2h) - You have been dancing for at least one year or more, are familiar with the fundamentals of Lindy Hop and Charleston, including figures such as the swing-out and Tandem Charleston, and can use these moves in social dancing. You are often found on the social dancefloor and your basics are solid, but you know that the devil is in the details (and that's why you are here, right?)!"

Solo Jazz (1h) - This is not your first time trying Solo Jazz and you know the Shim Sham and maybe even the Tranky Doo. Although not everything looks perfect yet, you are not afraid to bust out a "Shorty George" or "kick ball-change" on the dance floor. Level descriptions for Body Drumming, Tap, Boost your rhythms will follow soon!

Boost your rhythms, Body drumming (1h per class) - Both these classes will be accessible regardless of your level in Lindy Hop

Tap for Lindy Hoppers (1h) - This class is intended for those who have no or limited experience in tap dancing (beginner level in tap).


Registration will open on Friday 19th of October 18:00, via Lindy.plus!
