Announcement 27-11-21

Block 5 Weekly classes continue as scheduled: online.
All socials are paused for 4 weeks

Dear dancer,

Due to the increasing amount of Covid-infections, the government decided Friday 26 Nov to put a hold on all sport and amateur activities from 17:00 – 05:00.

It means that from Monday 29 Nov – 2 Dec all Lindy Spirit classes go online by ZOOM.

Same time, same class as on our schedule, easy : )

Also we try to organize Lindy Hop and Solo classes before 17:00 but we need a little more time for that. So…after next week we know more.

If we keep supporting each other and stay positive, we’ll stay strong.

Let’s do it together!

Summer Camp Information and Regulation

Dear dancers,
Times are weird and festivals are hard to organize when the rules change all the time, but now we know where we stand and we are happy to announce that both Summercamp Haarlem and Summercamp Amsterdam are happening this year! Thank you for your patience and for those of you that already signed up: thank you for your trust in us! Please find all important Corona Regulations and information for the festival below.

CoronaCheck

All participants to the festival must be in possession of a valid CoronaCertificate. The Dutch government currently recognizes the following:

  • Proof of vaccination (2 weeks since second Pfizer/Moderna, 4 weeks since Janssen)
  • Negative PCR/Antigen test (less than 24h since time of testing)
  • Proof of recovery from Corona + 1 vaccination (2 weeks since vaccination Pfizer/moderna)

You may be asked to show your certificate at the beginning of every lesson/party so we can ensure our festival is as safe as possible. This sadly means that you will have to do multiple tests if you are not fully vaccinated yet
(go to www.testenvoortoegang.org to book your test).
Please remember to bring your ID as well.

During the lessons

All lessons will be held outside (weather permitting). During the class we will rotate partners. If you feel uncomfortable with that and prefer to stay with your own partner, please let the teachers know before the class starts. We recommend you sign up with a partner if you prefer not to join the rotation, as we cannot guarantee there will be someone else with the same preference. If the weather forces us inside we will dance in bubbles of 2 couples (4-5 dancers). 1.5m between bubbles must be observed.

The classes will be held at the following locations:

(see schedule here)

  • Haarlem: Frederikspark
  • Amsterdam: Oosterpark & Westerpark

Indoor training sessions

The indoor parties will become training sessions where we will dance in bubbles of 2 couples (4-5 dancers). 1.5m between bubbles must be observed.
The following parties have become indoor training sessions:

  • Haarlem thu 19/8: Klein Heiligpand
  • Amsterdam thu 26/8 Zaal 100
  • Amsterdam fri 27/8 Jungle
  • Amsterdam sat 28/8 Zaal 100
  • Amsterdam thu 2/9 Zaal 100
  • Amsterdam fri 3/9 Jungle
  • Amsterdam sat 4/9 Zaal 100

Please note that bad weather might force us to cancel or move parties and classes. Keep an eye on the Lindyspirit Summercamp event page on Facebook for all the latest updates and location changes!

As you can see outside we are allowed to do a lot, inside not so much yet. We kindly ask that you help keep our festival safe by limiting contact with people outside of the festival during the weekend. We strongly recommend that you keep the same bubble for all indoor activities in one weekend. If you notice anything wrong (corona-related or otherwise), please let one of the teachers know!

See you on the dancefloor!!!

Important announcement

Dear students,
All classes are on hold until further notice as we’ve found convenient to wait until we have a specific answer from the government about partnered dancing.
The number of infected people is still high and there’s still too much risk of contagion.
For this reason we put the classes on hold for a little while and hope for the best.
Love from Lindy Spirit’s team ❤

Important announcement

Dear students,
All classes this coming week are also cancelled (2rd – 5th November) as we’ve found convenient to wait until it’s a safer climate.
The number of infected people slows down a bit and the risk of contamination is still very high.
For this reason we put the classes on hold for another week and hope for the best.
Love from Lindy Spirit’s team ❤

Important announcement

Dear students,
All classes this coming week are cancelled (19th – 23rd October) as we’ve found convenient to wait until we have a specified answer from the government about partnered dancing.
Solo classes are still allowed up to 30 people with 1.5m distance in one class but it has not been specified for partnered dancing. For this reason we put the classes on hold for a week and hope for the best.
Love from Lindy Spirit’s team ❤

Thanks to all these enthusiastic swing dancers, whom still dance with us, online, to stay in good shape and ready to dance together when this crisis is over.

Fri 13 March ’20

   Important announcement

Dear Beginners, Bouncers, Groovers, Hoppers, Dinah’s and other Lindy Spirit’s creature and addicts,

Due to the latest events and the recent government’s statement regarding the COVID-19 we feel obliged to cancel our weekly classes until April 1st for further notice.
It is a very hard decision as we love sharing our passion and having fun while teaching our great students and also as we, as artists, depend economically on our students, but we feel this is the wisest decision to keep not only our scene but other non-swing related people safe.

In our harts we cry but we behave nonchalant.

We’ll keep you updated and will inform you as soon as we know when we can restart again.

For now, what you can do is keep supporting the scene and artists like us, by buying their music, considering not asking for a full refund if events are cancelled or take instead some private classes or private lessons via Skype!

Looking forward to bounce again with you all,
Lindy Spirit’s team ✨
