Registration is made according to one of the following:

  • with a partner who is then the one you dance with the whole evening.
  • alone as a lead or follower who is accepted in even pairs.
  • alone without specifying the dance role, with the comment SWITCH, for the ones who both leads and follows
  • alone without specifying the dance role, with the comment, SOLO, for those who want to dance solo.

As soon as this corona situation is over we plan to go back to regular social dances where you just drop-in and ask any body for a dance…

Dine at Grand Hotel i Lund before or after you dance

For the complete experience we recommend that you also check out the food and book a table. To avoid timing issues please let the restaurant now that you are taking a swing class in the Ballroom and what time it starts.

Lindy Hop beginners’ weekend in Malmö

The course is open to everyone but this particular course has bigger youth and student discounts.

Do you like to dance or would you like to know how? Does “gangster swing” and “updated retro coolness” sound interesting? Then HepTown’s beginners Lindy Hop weekend workshop in Malmö is the thing for you!

Our introductory course is for those who have no knowledge of Lindy Hop, or took a couple of courses a long time ago and need to brush up the basics again.

You will learn different basic steps, the most common figures and basic leading/following techniques. The aim of the introductory course is to enable you to dance with the rest of us during social dance nights.

The workshop is a two-day introduction to this cool thing called Swing. We promise a workout worth a fitness centre combined with more fun than you’ve had for weeks. But be warned – it’s addictive…

Due to covid-19,

we limit the number of participants to a maximum of 36 people and skip the normally mandatory change of partners. You should of course stay at home and let us know if you have the slightest cold symptoms or the like which can be a sign of covid-19. You will then get your course fee as a credit to be used for a later course.
Read our full policy here: https://www.heptown.com/flu/

  • When: Saturday & Sunday 11-16
  • Ungdomens Hus, Norra Skolgatan 10B, Malmö
  • Requirements: NONE (bring flat indoor shoes and some lunch – that’s all)
  • Price: SEK 400-850 (see below for details)
  • The HepCat member prize for this beginners weekend is 800 SEK and HepCat membership costs another 50 SEK per semester.
  • Young people under the age of 26 and all students receive 40% discount using the booking code UNG or STU

Please note that ALL your registrations are binding! Cancellations must be made well in advance. Non-cancelled registrations will be charged full price

Only register for the classes that you actually really want to take and not your 2:nd and 3:rd options. You are still welcome to put a comment about your options in the comment box when you register

Swing Walk: Around Lund

Vi får inte dansa men vi kan vandra istället!

Funderar du också på vad man kan göra för att härda ut i det rådande läget, när nästan alla mötesplatser är nedstängda och dans uteslutet på obestämd tid?

För några veckor sedan efterlyste Håkan idéer, sedan kom ytterligare restriktioner. Gränsen på 8 personer är idag det vi har att förhålla oss till, men röra på oss måste vi fortfarande. Någon form av socialt liv utöver zoom är också bra att upprätthålla. Därför inbjuder jag (efter att ha pratat med Håkan) till en söndagspromenad den 6 december i Lund.

Planen är att utgå från Stadsparkens norra entré vid Högevallsgatan kl. 11:00 och gå runt hela det gamla Lund och genom grönområden där det är möjligt, bland annat Botan. Den exakta rutten kan vi bestämma tillsammans. Självfallet håller vi avstånd under vandringen enligt gällande rekommendationer.

För att vår förening ska följa reglerna behöver den som vill delta anmäla sig till mig i god tid via mail, sms eller telefon. (Jag har inte FB).

Även om du inte just nu vet om du kan vara med den 6/12, är du välkommen att höra av dig om du alls kan tänka dig att delta. Det är tacksamt för både min och Håkans planering att veta om det finns något intresse för den här typen av arrangemang i vår förening just nu.

Välkommen med din anmälan, frågor, synpunkter eller glada tillrop!

We can’t dance but we can go for a hike instead!

We will of course see to keep a distance relevant to the current situation.

More information can be given by Nils-Erik Norrby, +46725251848 or by mail nils-erik@forshult.nu. (Nils-Erik is not on Facebook.)

There is an ambition to later arrange more and longer hikes. Ideas of where future hikes could take place are welcome.
