Event description

Description

20+ Years of Lindy Hop in Toronto!

It doesn’t matter whether you started more than 20 years ago, haven’t danced in 20 years, or still dance regularly. Let’s get together for a bit of nostalgia and tip our hats to memories of The Swing Gang at Barcode, colourful Modrobes, and road trips to Ithaca. Save the date and spread the word!

The reunion will take place the weekend of January 5-7, 2018.

This event is open to anyone, but is particularly geared towards people who “feel old”, as in started dancing a long time, or what feels like a long time ago. See some old friends, have a few laughs, and maybe even get back out on the dance floor. Once a Lindy Hopper, always a Lindy Hopper!
