Welcome to Lindy What? Lindy Hop Nijmegen!

We are a community of enthusiasts passionate about the social dance culture of the swing era of jazz, in particular the Lindy Hop in the beautiful city of Nijmegen (NL). We organize dance classes, workshops and social dances with live music. Our organization was founded in 2014 and completely consists of volunteers, 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

July 3 2022: – Swing on Sunday Teadance!

There are worse things to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon than going for some swing outs and having a cup of tea or two.
 
First, we’ll be kicking it off with a Lindy Hop taster class, which is open to join for everyone, even if you have no other dancing experience whatsoever!
 
Then our resident DJ will provide some swingin’ tunes for you.
 
Start taster: 15:00
Start social dance: 16:00
End: 20:00
 
We will provide a donation box at the entrance, of which the proceeds will be fully used to cover the rent of the venue for this and future events.

See 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!
