About us


About us

Aarhus Lindy Hoppers is an association organizing swing dance in and around Aarhus. Our main focus is Lindy Hop, but we also like authentic jazz, shag, balboa - basically everything that evolved around the 1920'ies and 30'ies

Currently, we organize classes on two levels; basic and intermediate. Besides classes we organise social dancing events during the week and sometimes a workshop over a weekend.

We are a non-profit organization that is based on the work of volunteers. Profit from classes, workshops etc. is used to pay for live bands, parties, class rooms, and workshop instructors. Membership of the association is automatically included in the fee for classes but dancers who are not taking classes can also become members.

Every year (around January) our general assembly is held, where we discuss and plan the focus points for the association. At the general assembly a board of five people is elected to represent the association.
