Kellerbar 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.


ONLINE courses via zoom. 2 Levels (Level 2+3 are together in one class). You need a dance partner. REGISTER HERE

Costs (8–12 lessons):
20 € for students and non-earners, 30 € for other participants / wage-earners.
