Live band: Laney and the Snappy Rhythm Gang
The lovely singer Laney and her cheery gang of magnificent jazz musicians journey through the golden swing era's 30s and 40s and impress with their variety of sound and inspiration in interpreting the classics. The band will keep your feet moving to the swinging beat when performing exquisite arrangements of jazz standards and the most popular songs among swing dancers - that's a safe bet!
Mix&Match competition Lindy Hop
In Mix & Match competitions (formerly also: Jack & Jill), the dance partners are drawn by lot directly before the tournament. No choreographies are performed, but all random pairs dance simultaneously, similar to social dancing, while being observed by the jury. Apart from dance technique and timing, teamwork and creativity will be judged.
To register, you do not need to bring a partner. You don't need any experience in competitions either – even if you are at Intermediate/Advanced level, you can still take part. It's all about having fun and the excitement of dancing and improvising with (probably) unknown dance partners in front of an audience to unknown music. A Mix & Match competition is also a great opportunity if you would like to get a taste of competing without too much pressure.
The preliminary round for the Lindy Mix&Match will take place at 8.30 p.m. We will meet at 8 p.m.in Hall 3. You will dance with 3 different dance partners at medium tempo, with all dance couples dancing at the same time. Each dancer will be judged individually. You can therefore get to the finals independently of your dance partners.
The 6 finalists (3 leaders and 3 followers) will dance to 3 songs in different tempos (slow, medium, and fast) performed by our live band during the party. Our teachers take part as dance partners, i.e. 3 "amateur dancers" have the chance to dance 3 dances with "pro dancers". The couple will be judged as a whole. So it's not just the individual performance that counts, but also what you make of the dance as a couple.
Great prizes await 1st-3rd places, such as free workshop tickets for BBDC 2024, Crazy Cup, RTSF, and more.
