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 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.

Corona: Current Rules

Even though government regulations have been lifted, we have decided to keep some restrictions in place…

To take part in any class, please show us proof of a Bürgertest no more than 24 hours old. If you prefer, you can instead bring a Schnelltest with you and do it at check-in (in which case, please make sure to come to class at least 15 minutes early — we don’t want you to have to miss class because your result isn’t ready yet!)

No test is required if you show us your proof of vaccination or recovery.

We’ll be checking your 3G status in the hall just outside the studio – please wait there for the teacher to come out to you.

  • Geimpft (vaccinated): you must provide proof of full vaccination protection; at least 14 days must have passed since the last required single vaccination.
  • Genesen (recovered): we require proof of a positive PCR test that was performed at least 28 days and at most six months ago. After the six months, those who have recovered need proof of a single vaccination that was at least 14 days ago.
  • Getestet (tested): If you don’t have, or prefer not to show, your vaccination or recovery status, then you’ll need to show us proof of a negative Schnelltest from the last 24 hours.

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.
