Course details

  • Time: Classes take place on Wednesdays from 21:30 until 22:30. We’ll start on April 27th and the last class is on June 15th, 2016. There will be six classes in total (no class on May 18th and we’re planning one more week off).
  • Location: Altrimenti in Luxembourg City.
  • Course fee: This course is offered to you for free. Why? Because we love to experiment with new swing dances.
  • Class size is restricted to 15 couples only, so make sure to register immediately after the registration opens.
  • Waiting lists can be expected, especially for followers. Registering as a couple will improve your chances.
  • Teachers: Your teachers will be Lydia and Sjouke (your Lindy Hop 1 teachers who have been dancing rueda de casino for centuries).
  • Requirements:
    • You must be able to dance a stable swingout and Texas Tommy on medium to fast music. This means that we will accept registrations only from students that have finished at least our level 2 Lindy Hop course.
    • This is the first issue of this course, so be prepared for a happy chaos.
    • Even though the course is for free, we do need your commitment to attend the whole course.
