Lindy Hoppers Delight and the Galway Lindy Hop Championships
Galway, November 22-24
This years Lindy Hoppers Delight brings to Galway the amazing Skye Humphries and Naomi Uyama, joined by the always popular Scott Cupit and Robyn Larsen. This years event kicks off on Friday the 22nd November in the Meyrick Hotel witht he second Galway Lindy Hop Championships, and continues throughout the weekend with workshops at both Intermediate and Advanced levels.
Whilst there are still a few lead spaces available across both levels, follow spaces have now sold out some time ago, so to facilitate follows that might still want to come and take some great classes, we have arranged a seperate 'solo stream', featuring six hours of solo classes (Charleston, Jazz) across the weekend taught by Skye Humphries, Naomi Uyama and Galway's own Sarah McHugh.
