Lindy What? Nijmegen Launch Party: what a night!


The Lindy What? launch party was a huge success! We kicked off the evening with an introductory lesson for complete beginners with Rosalind and Simon: the room was completely packed, way beyond all of our initial hopes and expectations. At one point we counted 90 people on the dance floor! This was followed by another three hours of swingin’ social dancing to music ranging from the classic swing jazz era to the modern, courtesy of DJ Mathias. The atmosphere was electric and it was pure joy to see the dance floor “bouncing” in unison. Well done Inge for finding such a cool venue! In Lindy Hop we measure success by the size of the smiles on people’s faces and in this way we couldn’t have had a better start: thank you everybody for all your support. The spirit of Frankie Manning is alive and well in the Netherlands and now it has arrived in Nijmegen too!
