Here are answers to the most frequestly asked questions on Lindy Hop lessons in EIndhoven.

  1. Q: I have experience in dancing Lindy Hop. Can I join the lessons in Eindhoven?
    A: Probably. We are pretty flexible, no need to wait for the next block. Send an e-mail to robert-chantal@lindyhopeindhoven.nl when you want to come to the classes. When you show up we can discuss details. We find it much easier to talk than to write lengthy e-mails. We never had to say no to anyone yet. We have lessons every Thursday evening:
    7:45 pm   Lesson for absolute beginners (people that started in January)
    8:45 pm   Social dance/practice
    9:00 pm   Lesson for dancers with at least 1 year of experience
    10:00 pm Social dance/practice
    11:00 pm End
  2. Q: Where are the lessons?
    A: Heesterhonk, Florelaan 48 in Eindhoven

  3. Q: I have no experience in Lindy Hop. When will you start new lessons for absolute beginners?
    A: We do not know but you can write an e-mail to robert-chantal@lindyhopeindhoven.nl so we can put you on the list of people interested in new lessons. We will then notify you when we plan a new course (most likely in January, maybe in September). This pre-registration brings no obligations from your side but does secure you a place when you pre-registered early enough.
  4. Q: Can I register without a partner?
    A: Yes you can. We will be rotating partners in class anyway. However we want a fair balance between leads and follows so we need to match you up with someone wanting to dance the oher role. Usually we have more people registering as a follow (traditionally the female role). So your chances or being able to join will increase if you are also willing to lead.
  5. Q: What are the cost?
    A: We charge just enough to cover our expenses. That means that we only need to charge 2.50 Euro per evening (to be paid in advance for 10 evenings on the second lesson).
  6. Q: Can I try before I buy?
    A: There are no separate sessions to try and see if you like Lindy Hop or our way of teaching. However when we start a new beginner course the first lesson fullfills that function. If you do not like the first lesson you do not need to pay or show up for the other lessons. You are also more than welcome to have a look at our current group of dancers and what they have learned and are learning. Just send us an e-mail so we know you are coming.
  7. Q: Which language will be used in class?
    A: Because of the large number of nationalities showing up we teach mostly in English. However, all teachers are Dutch native speakers so you can ask us questions in Dutch as well or ask us to explain some things in Dutch. We also speak German reasonably well.
