Lindy Hop Rocks Heidelberg

Have fun with new friends and recharge your energy with dancing and music!

In Heidelberg, as a community we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Whether casual dancers or professionals like some of our teachers, we all meet to be social and enjoy an evening of dancing.

We have the same mix of people that you find in Heidelberg itself: students, academics, working people with families, people from Germany and also from everywhere in the world. What brings us together is the energy we get from cultural enrichment, laughter and the joy of movement and music.

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


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 consist of consecutive weekly classes; usually 3 to 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 learn together.

Corona: Current Rules

We currently don’t require any proof of vaccination, recovery, or a Schnelltest in order to join classes with us.

However, we strongly encourage all dancers to test themselves regularly – no matter whether you’re vaccinated or not. Even if you only take one class per week, most of our teachers and many other dancers are also in other classes, so the number of connected people is higher than you might think.

And of course we know that Schnelltests aren’t perfect; especially with the current variants a negative Schnelltest isn’t a guarantee. So please stay careful: stay home if you feel any symptoms (you can catch up using our online lessons! ;P). And let us know if you test positive after having attended class, so that we can let the other students know that it’s time to test themselves again too.

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

Do not attend class if you have Covid-19 symptoms or you’ve tested positive, or if you’ve been in recent contact with someone with Covid-19. 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’re also welcome to wear a mask while dancing, but it’s not required.

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.
