Dance with the old Lindy Hop Masters

The Syncopators and Hepcats presents: Dance with the old Lindy Hop Masters

The Lindy Syncopators and Hepcats Copenhagen will collaborate once again to bring you another event in the series “The Syncopators & Hepcats presents” where the aim is not only to provide you with a great lindy hop party but also an event that spreads the history and culture of jazz music and dancing.

On the 11th of January we celebrate the ones who made it all possible, the great dancers who came before us. They made Lindy Hop fantastic, actually, they made Lindy Hop.

The Party will focus on them. We have some ideas, how to celebrate them, but if you have more, please share it with us. We plan to have sound clips, movie clips, stories, perhaps a talk and of course, the best way to celebrate the great lindy hoppers: to dance.

Din swingdanskurs gör dig berättigad till friskvårdsbidrag

Ditt företag är berättigat att ge dig en skattefri personalvårdsförmån som ofta kallas friskvårdsbidrag. Ett bidrag för kostnaden att delta i fysiska aktiviteter som t.ex. dans och däribland såklart swingdanser som Lindy Hop, Balboa och Jazzdans. En möjlighet som de allra flesta företag tar till vara.
 

Kvitto på swingdanskurs

Se nu bara till att skriva ut ett kvitto och lämna inn på jobbet. Kvittot får du automatiskt på mail när vi registrerat din betalning och kan även hämtas här

Klart att Lindy Hop räknas som friskvård!

Har tidigare hänt att företag påstår att dans inte räknas men numera står motionsdans t.o.m. specifikt med i skatteverkets definition.

Hur mycket får man maximalt i friskvårdsbidrag?

Det finns från skattemyndigheten ingen övre gräns så länge samma villkor gäller för alla anställda. Det är med andra ord din arbetsplats som bestämmer hur mycket pengar du kan få tillbaka.
