One of the greatest characteristics of the Heartland Swing Festival is the dedication to invite and welcome new dancers to the scene. Learning to dance can seem scary and embarrassing for some people, but joining the swing dance scene is one of the greatest decisions you can make. Dancing is an activity that you can continue to do all your life. One of our lindy hop heroes, Frankie Manning, was still dancing well into his nineties!
We encourage you to give it a try and we welcome you to join us on the dance floor.
The Level 1 Beginners Crash Course is the perfect way to get started. The track offers four hours of lessons on Saturday, April 2nd and dancers are invited to come to the Saturday evening dances and watch the Saturday competitions.
No previous experience necessary. No partner required. All ages welcome!
