This Lindy Hop workshop offers a unique blend of classes and practice time that help you see real progress right away.

During the classes, we’ll share our latest understanding of the dance to spark new ideas. Then, in the practice sessions, we provide the time and support you need to incorporate these insights into your dancing and allow you to develop your own unique style.

How does it work?

Each day starts with an hour-long class and a half-hour practice session; after that we’ll have shorter bursts, swapping back and forth between class time and practice time. The classes will inspire you with new ideas and give you specific goals to work on. The practice sessions give you time to incorporate them, and to explore further and develop your unique dance voice.

Over the weekend you’ll have a total of 9 hours of training.

Don’t miss this chance to refine your Lindy Hop skills and create lasting memories with like-minded dancers!

Group Descriptions

Group 1
You’ve been dancing Lindy Hop for under a year, but you’ve jumped in with both feet and you’re ready for a deep dive. You have a comfortable repertoire of Lindy Hop basics – you’re familiar with iconic moves like swingouts, tuck turns, and passbys, and you’re able to dance your movements both using triple steps and in Charleston.

This group is great for you if you want to find yourself more in the dance – give yourself the time and focus to let things “click”, and fit what you’ve learned already into a bigger picture.

Group 2
You’re an experienced Lindy Hopper, probably you’ve been dancing for several years by now. You have a wide repertoire of moves, you’re comfortable dancing fast, or slow, or anything in between, and you have a lot of experience social dancing and adjusting to lots of different partners.

In this workshop you’re not interested in just getting another fancy move; you want to dig deep and go back to the basic elements of the dance with fresh eyes to uncover more options and develop your dance identity.

Workshop Location:

SwingStation Kurfürsten-Anlage 58
69115 Heidelberg

The entrance is on the eastern side of the building, reachable from the Kurfürsten-Anlage itself or from the Kirchstraße. Our studio is on the ground floor, at the end of the hall.

Public Transportation: many busses, streetcars, trains; stops “Hauptbahnhof” or “Stadtwerke”.

Parking: please do not park in the yard, the parking spaces don’t belong to us and you might get a ticket. It’s hard to find parking spots in our area, so you should plan in some extra time. You can try to find street parking in the Kirchstraße or Vangerowstraße, or you might need to go to a nearby Parkhaus (e.g. P1 in the Poststraße) and walk from there.
