Ahoy Lindy Hoppers!

Hopefully y’all have survived the Zomerfeesten and are all in the perfect mindset to chill out and read another rendition of the high grade journalism that is our news letter 😛 

Looking back on last season

First of all, a big thank you is in order, a thank you to everyone who joined us last season to make it a great year! A lot of familiar and new faces as volunteers and community members in general, a new home in Caribisch Centrum Amanné, Solo Jazz and Blues classes, NimmaHop, and generally a ton of swing outs, have made is a worthy revival year post-pandemic!

This gives us all the energy and inspiration to work on a great future for Lindy Hop in Nijmegen!! <3

Feedback Form results

Like after every block we’ve gathered feedback about everyones experience and what we can do to improve. Besides a LOT of sweet messages (thank you so much <3!!) we also got some really constructive pointers that we will take into the new season:
  • At the start of a new block we will do an introduction round where everyone has the opportunity to introduce themselves.
  • Even more practice time during class!
  • To make sure everyone gets the attention they need, we’re going to focus on personal feedback more and also encourage people to dance with us during practice time after class for some private one on one feedback!
Thank you so much for being so engaged and providing us with valuable insights!! 

New season, new classes

We’re starting a new round of Lindy Hop classes!

This september we’re kicking off the new season with three levels:
  • Lindy A – For absolute beginners
  • Lindy B – For those who have at least 6 months of Lindy Hop experience. if you have danced with us before, you’ll have finished A+ in this case 🙂
  • Lindy C – If you want to really nerd out!
Please read the level description on our website and use the form available there to register!

Season Kickoff with NimmaHop Live!

We kick off the next Lindy Hop season with a bang on september 3rd!

The Happy Feet Orchestra is a swing jazz band consisting of professional musicians who played at North Sea Jazz, Montreux Jazz Festival and a plethora of jazz venues across Europe. If these cats can’t get you swingin’, noone will! Best of all, they tailor their music specifically for us dancers!

First we start of with a Lindy Hop beginners class for absolute beginners, after that The Happy Feet Orchestra will take us on a jazz journey that will surely make you bounce into the evening!

Balboa summerschool

In these two evenings Pien and John will teach you the fundamentals of Balboa! To make sure we can dive in deep relatively quickly, it’s recommended you have danced Lindy Hop for at least 6 months, with translates to having completed Lindy A+ if you danced with us before 🙂

As this is a summer activity, these workshops are donation based and are purely used to cover the rent for the room!

11 August 20:00 – 21:30
18 August 20:00 – 21:30
