KHG Lindy Hop & Balboa classes

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, Balboa and other swing dances.

Operated by KGH Erlangen they are thrilled to offer weekly Lindy Hop classes plus a well-attended weekly social dance, as well as several taster classes throughout the semester breaks. The rooms have changed to another location but the positive and friendly vibe has remained the same!
