Lindy & Blues Workshop with Lisa & Fabien

Sadly, no swingomania in 2020 BUT we comfort ourselves by having a mini version of it!
One day of Lindy Hop, one day of Blues, one social dance night, and from France coming to teach us: one Lisa, one Fabien.

We are going to keep it small and worked out a concept to keep a low risk. For that we need all of your guys‘ support to help make this workshop a safe and comfortable one.
