Getting ready for your Lindy Hop weekend

A page with practical information for those that have just signed up for a beginners Lindy Hop weekend

A page with practical information for those that have just signed up for a beginners Lindy Hop weekend. This is just the general information that aplies to all weekends and all venues. More specific information will be sent out a few days before your workshop.

Good to know

  • Attire is usually a mixture of training and everyday clothes and sometimes a little retro style. Comfortable and loose-fitting is good, avoid e.g. tight jeans.
  • Bring your most comfortable indoor shoes. Preferably with a slightly smoother sole. Not black outdoor sneakers that leave black marks on the floor.
  • Water bottle and extra T-shirt are also good to have as you can count on sweating.
  • Feel free to bring a lunch box and eat together. However, we usually do not have access to the kitchen, cutlery and the likes. Lunch break about 13-14
  • Always bring all valuables into the course room.

The next course

The continuation course is called B. Beginners-continued and is offered as a semester course on several different days in Lund and Malmö. Don’t wait too long to register…

Balboa på Globen – med mulighed for spisning først

December er jo fyldt med julefrokoster. Vi holder ikke egentlig julefrokost, men synes det kunne være hyggeligt at mødes til en bid brød før social dans. Konceptet er helt uformelt: Medbring en dele-venlig (jule)ret til fællesspisning.

Vi regner med at spise ca. 18 og danse fra ca. 19:30

Skriv gerne, om du kommer, så vi ved, hvor mange der skal dækkes op til. Skriv også gerne, hvad du tager med, så der er mulighed for at koordinere.

Ann-Britt og Karin/ Ministry of Balboa

December is the month of ”julefrokost”. We don’t have a balboa julefrokost, but we do think it could be hyggeligt to meet and dine before the social dance. The concept is quite informal: Bring along your favorite (x-mas) dish to share.
