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.
  • Extra dance floor outside the tent makes lots of space to keep 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 will still do this some of the evenings but without rotating partners. Most evenings we will 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…
