Quotes, references and riffs in Jazz music

You know the feeling of hearing an unheard before tune, and suddenly something just sounds very familiar? A fun and interesting lecture about the small musical references jazz musicians make when they play. Popular riffs and rhythms that travel through songs and genres and other “inner jokes” that intentionally refer to other songs. Does this sound interesting for you? Then join our lecture with Ron Dobrovinsky

Welcome to Lindy What? Lindy Hop Nijmegen!

We are a swing dance club based in the beautiful city of Nijmegen (NL). We are passionate about the social dance culture of the swing era of jazz, in particular the Lindy Hop. We organize dance classes, workshops and social dances with live music. Our organisation was founded in 2014, based upon the tenet that Lindy Hop is a very social and enjoyable dance, where we enjoy one other’s company and have a good time dancing with everybody, no matter their skills.

Dear dancers, we really enjoyed the lessons that we had in small groups in September/October 2020! We have stopped all on-location classes until the Covid situation has improved. Stay safe and healthy, you all, and join our online activities to keep in touch! It was good to see many of you during the Christmas gala with the Roaring cats, and the online solo lesson with Sep Vermeersch was fun! We have further (online) activities in preparation for January and February. When things look better and it feels safe to meet again, of course we will pick up our lessons right where we left. Take care and we hope to see you again soon!

Important: Like everyone else, we have been following the updates about the Corona virus closely. For Corona measures during class, check out the following page

Want to join Lindy Hop courses?

  • Interested in beginners course? Would you like to receive a mail when the next on-location course for beginners is scheduled? We regularly have crash courses or weekly classes for beginners on Friday nights, and occasionally also in the weekend. We are extra careful during the current pandemic, so therefore the calendar is emptier than normal, but behind the scenes we’re cooking up ideas. When we start again, most likely the first classes will be courses for fixed dance couples. If you do not sign up with a partner, we will try to find someone to dance with you throughout the course.

Early in 2019 we celebrated our fifth anniversary as a dance club with our Weekend festival What’s Hop!?! If you want to see what Lindy Hop looks like, you can check out the demonstration dances by our amazing teachers at that event in the videos section. To celebrate our 7th anniversary, What’s Hop!? Third Edition will take place February 2021, if Corona measures allow. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Lindy What? The Lindy Hop is an energetic and dynamic jazz dance which evolved in 1920s and 30s Harlem, New York. It is a fusion of various jazz dances which came before it, most notably tap, breakaway and Charleston. Once you get the Lindy bug, there’s no going back!

Lindy Hop is danced in couples (a pair consisting of a lead and a follow), although the couple need not consist of a man and a woman: both men and women may take the role of either lead or follow. It is a social dance, meaning that we do not have a fixed ‘dance partner’ like one often finds in other dances. Sounds like fun? You can do it!
