GIO & MIRJAM
LADY SWING ORCHESTRA
CATS & DINOSAURS
GOTHENBURG UNITED STOMPERS
Workshops, parties, live bands, DJs, conversations, fika and most importantly loads of dancing! There will be workshop tracks for experienced lindy hop dancers who already dance both as leader and follower, for experienced dancers who only dance one role but want to learn the other and for beginners (who will learn both leading and following).
But what is actually queer lindy? It is swing dancing without regard to the traditional heteronormative dance roles, and with the option to switch roles while dancing. This way of dancing has many names in the lindy community, but we have chosen to use the term queer lindy to connect with other movements like queer tango and queer salsa as well as to honor the roots in the LGBTQ+ community.
We hope to create a forum for experienced queer lindy dancers to meet, learn and share experiences, as well as an oppurtunity for the curious to discover queer lindy. If you have ideas, requests or fantasies for the festival, please write us a line below!
More information will be posted continually and registrations will open later this spring.
The festival is arranged by the dance societies Queerlindy Göteborg and West Coast Jitterbugs. Both societies are politically unaffiliated. Any political stance made by the participating bands, teachers etc. would reflect only their own opinion.
