Many of you might be wondering if there’s a class tonight: Because of the corona virus and the new recommendations that we avoid body contact, the Cottontails board (together with the dance instructors) have decided to cancel the classes (both Lindy hop and Balboa), social dance and own practice until further notice.

We have simply followed the advice from above, and also been checking in with other dance organisations, to see how they are dealing with the situation. Even though we are a small club, this is for the best.

We will however try to compensate the loss in the best way we can: the members of Lindy 1 will receive a video tonight of stuff you can practice on your own at home!

This strange situation really sucks for us all, but we have to make the best of it, and make sure nobody gets sick! Let’s make these days a good reminder to always appreciate and love our body when we’re healthy and can move freely! 🙂
Take good care until we’re all back on the dance floor!

Missed out, or still not sure?

Did you miss the beginning of the course in Lindy or Balboa?

Don’t worry, you can always pay a drop-in price of 150kr for single classes! Either Vipps (#94745) us or pay into our account ( 1503.10.35667). If you have gone to the two first free classes, but still aren’t quite sure if the dance style is for you, you can pay a drop in price now and then take it off the coursemembership next week when you (obviously!) decide you want to dance with us!

Great, right?

So see you on the dancefloor tonight!

Shim sham crash course & social dance this Saturday at 20:00 9.3

We are throwing a crash course in Shim sham this Saturday at 20:00! You don’t wanna miss out on learning the solo jazz routine that so many lindy hoppers all over the world know. The shim sham is also a part of the routine we will perform on Dansens Dag in the spring, so this is a great opportunity to freshen up your steps, even if you might already be familiar with the dance. 

Also, we’re of course taking social dance for a night out in town!
Bring your best mood and nicest shoes and come join us at Speilsalen in Kvarteret Saturday night! We promise music for both Lindy hop and Balboa dancers from 21:00-02:00. Anybody else with restless feet are also most welcome!

See you on the dancefloor!

Course start autumn 2018

Dear swing cats,

We are soon ready to kick off a new semester of dancing!

Our venue Asylbarnehagen has been under renovation, which has forced us to postpone the course start a bit. But looking from the bright side, we’ll have a new and improved dance floor soon enough!

Asylbarnehagen has now informed us that we are welcome to dance there again the 20th of September. Stay tuned and we will soon inform you when and where Lindy 1 will start.

The other venue at Danckert Krohn is ours as usual, more info will come soon about Lindy Hop 2 class start.
