KHG Erlangen


A while ago a bunch of dance addicts and swing nerds took over the cosy rooms of the KHG Kellerbar Erlangen to spread the joy of Lindy Hop, Blues and other swing dances.
They are now thrilled to offer weekly Lindy Hop classes plus a well-attended weekly social dance, as well as several taster classes throughout the semester breaks.


We want to teach our students more than a by-heart-set of steps and figures – more importantly we are focusing on getting the very unique feeling of Lindy Hop and Swing music, and learn a solid technique of leading and following to maximize expression and fun with our partner.


After a long time of no dancing, virtual dancing and on-and-off-classes we hope that we will get back into a regular teaching and social dancing reality.
There will be 2 Levels + open training for level 2/3 No dance partner required.

Costs (approx. 13–15 lessons):
For one class: 30 € for students and non-earners, 40 € for wage-earners.

For 2 classes:
45 € for students and non-earners, 60 € for wage-earners.

NEW: OPEN TRAINING for Level 2/3
Wednesdays, 20 – 21 h, Großer Saal KHG, Sieboldstraße 3, Erlangen
This open class is supposed to be an opportunity for you to practice certain things from your dance, learn from each other and get more time to try things out than you usually get in class. the training will always have a rough frame structured by the teachers and they will be there to guide you, help you, give personal feedback, input and insights.
