Lindy Hop
Heidelberg, Germany

Lindy Hop is developing really fast! If you compare the videos from the 80s and 90s to how people dance these days, you’ll see a big change, both in the shapes we take in the dance, as well as the mindset towards the dance. But as the dance is evolving we are in many ways getting closer to how it looked in the 30s and 40s. We have still a lot to learn from the original Lindy Hoppers! As we keep pushing the dance forward, we’d like to invite you to the Chase Festival: it’s that time of year when dancers, students, teachers and musicians all get together to look back at our history and remind ourselves of our past – both to pick up forgotten gems and to see how far we’ve come. You don’t need to be a history buff to reap the benefits of our history though. At the Chase Festival, your teachers will deliver classes that draw inspiration from vintage clips to take you on on journey to the best of what our history has to offer. And we can’t think of a more beautiful place for that adventure than the historic city hall of Heidelberg. Most classes and parties will happen in one spot – so the only travel you do during Chase Festival is time travel!
