Swing in the park 15/7

July 15, 2020 @ 18:30 - 21:00

Yes, HepTown and Sommar Lund invites you to swing in the park every Wednesday from the 1st of July to 12th of August.

We take this opportunity to work on our solo swing dance as it’s an important and fun part of becoming excellent Lindy Hoppers.

### HOURS
+ Open: 18.30 – 2100.
+ Cost: Free*
+ Easy class: 18:30-19:20, Easy Shim Sham variations etc

### 50 PEOPLE LIMIT
To ensure that we are a maximum of 50 people inside the fences around the dance floor, SommarLund has extra staff on site to hand out 50 tags (Dansband). When you go home (or take a longer break) you leave your tag which is then disinfected. There are extra tags to be handed out while the disinfected ones are left to dry.

### IS THIS REALLY A GOOD IDEA!?
*It will not be business as usual. We strive to follow and surpass guidelines and recommendations.*

Some examples of measurements we are considering

+ Authentic jazz solo dance classes instead of coupled Lindy Hop.
+ Beginners Lindy Hop without rotating partner.
+ Opting out the social dance part or making it a solo jazz jam.
+ Larger dance space for better distance.
+ Fenced dance area with a limit of 50 people at once

### MORE THAN DANCING
This is also a good time to have picnic or barbecue while keeping good distance, play some games or just lounging in the sun. There is a roof over the dance floor if it should happen to rain.

### LOCATION
The dance-floor will be located at Söderlyckan a little bit south Stadsparken i Lund. Close to Söderlyckan Skateboardpark Lund and Mejeriet. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/f2UPVyj2Kdq1XGfY6

### SWING DANCE TASTER CLASS
The evenings used to always start with a short taster class in Lindy Hop aka jitterbug , an African American couple dance from the ’30s Harlem and we might still do this but without rotating partners or teach Tap or Authentic jazz solo dance classes instead. Authentic Jazz is a big part of the Lindy Hop scene and a really good way to get your body moving and feel the rhythm…
