Lindy Hop Energizes Berlin

Recharge your energy in a thriving and lively dance and music culture with new friends!

Berlin is a great place for Lindy Hop. We have a multi-faceted culture where anyone can find a home. At SwingStep we’ve created a friendly and mindful atmosphere where you can have fun and focus on learning the dance.

We are full-time dedicated to the dance, its culture and community to make sure you have the best experience possible. Which even earned us the reputation of being the “fleissige Bienen” which translates to hardworking bees.

Learn Lindy Hop from beginner to advanced with us using our:

Drop-ins

Drop-ins are weekly classes that you can join at any time.

The classes are independent of each other, so it doesn’t matter which week you join or whether you skip a class.

You can come with or without a partner. The lead and follow balance depends on who shows up.

Courses

Courses consist of consecutive weekly classes; usually 6 weeks total.

The group stays together over the duration, and works on material that progresses week to week.

You can sign up with or without a partner and we will work to balance the groups.

Online Courses

The online program brings the course experience straight to you at home.

You can learn from these videos with or without a partner, and you can start any time you want.

In live sessions we train and listen to music together – also part of the online program.

Our Prices:

Trial Class

Free

You want to check and see if Lindy Hop is for you? Just pick one of the drop-in classes here, put on some comfy clothes and show up.

Corona: Current Rules

The official restrictions are lifted for now, but we still recommend you to do a test before you come anyway.

We are happy to say that we can continue allowing partner change in classes.

Hygiene regulations of course also apply. People with Covid-19 symptoms, or who have been in contact with someone with Covid-19, are not allowed to attend class. Our hand washing station is there for you when you enter the studio as usual. We’ll keep the studio ventilated to ensure air flow.

We encourage you to wear a mask in the hallway and when using the bathroom. You can take it off as soon as you pass the check-in. While dancing you don’t have to wear a mask – although you’re welcome to do so if you prefer.

In case of an infection, we’ll do our best to inform everyone involved. Please keep your subscription info up to date and accurate; go to your Account Page to make any changes.

When you sign up and participate in our classes, you do this at your own risk. We’ll do all we can to make it as safe as possible, but of course we cannot make any guarantee. By participating, you acknowledge that you’re aware of the risk and that SwingStep GmbH can’t be held responsible for possible infections.
You also promise that you will follow our hygiene rules, to protect yourself and others.
