“Fatalistic dancing until the end”
IG HOP puts on Lindy Hop classes, workshops and events in Vienna and elsewhere. Also, we organise various Swingdance-events and concerts. Our regular events are The Tuesday Hop at WIRR and The Fruity Hop at Volksgarten Pavillion. The conceptual design for both is done in cooperation with the label Palpatatin Kosmetik.
“We” is a group of people (an Interest Group, aka IG) who met on the dance floor in Vienna.
sharing a passion for Lindy Hop, Vernacular Jazz Dance, Charleston, Swing and Jazz, we joined forces to generate an up-to-date frame for the Viennese Swing scene to grow and develop.
For us, learning how to dance Lindy Hop means finding a possibility to express rhythm, melody and the mood of swing together with a partner or alone through a dance. In partner-dancing, who leads and who follows is up to individual taste.
In our classes, we have an absolute maximum of 20 people per group. This allows us to give personal feedback and individual support.
Dancing happens on the dance floor, so it’s our aim to see students out in the wild as soon as possible.
