*No pre-registration or partner needed to take part. This class is targeted at adults but courageous teens are also very welcome to join.

**Triangelkvartetten: The original 4 members of the band started when they where jamming at the Triangel square – hence the name Triangelkvartetten. The band has grown in number of members and is now maybe the world’s (or at least Malmö’s) biggest swing quartet!

LINDY HOP

The main dance is Lindy Hop, a swing dance originating in the 30-40s in Harlem, NY. But you are always welcome to dance whatever you like or just hang out
