Current Situation Update

We hope you are doing well despite all the challenges in the current situation. At first we were still hoping that Liesel Hop ARTist edition could take place as planned. However, as everything developed very fast on a global scale, impacting practically all aspects of daily life, it became clear that we would need to adapt to the current situation.

After reaching out to all artists, venues, and others involved, we decided to postpone the Liesel Hop ARTist edition to next year, keeping the same overall concept. The tentative dates are 21-24.05.2021. We hope this will be enough time to overcome the current global health crisis. We will be announcing further information as soon as we know more.

In the meantime, we are starting a reimbursement program for all participants that have already paid for this year’s edition of the Liesel Hop. All registered participants have been contacted with further details.

As an act of solidarity with all the artists and venues that are particularly affected by the current situation, we are providing an option for each participant to donate a part of their reimbursement to support the artists and venues. Depending on the amount of donations, we may dedicate a part of them to cover any outstanding costs (e.g. for travel arrangements for the artists). 

Stay safe, stay healthy, and keep swinging!

Liesel Hop ARTist

The third edition of the Göttingen Lindy Exchange has again a very special topic. We will look at swing dance as a form of art. The beauty of improvised dance lasts barely longer than the beat of a drum. In the ARTist edition of the Liesel Hop, you can learn how to preserve such moments in dance photography, integrate ideas from improvisational theatre in your dancing, get a new perspective on swing music, and discover many other art forms related to swing dance. More than 150 dancers await you in one of the oldest student towns, right in the centre of Germany! We are inviting you to:

  • dance 3 nights to the Shirt Tail Stompers, the Harlem Swing Cats, and Hanna Carlson
  • learn more about the swing dance history from Lennart Westerlund
  • jam around the lovely city of Göttingen
  • recharge at the lazy lindy brunch
  • look forward to many other surprises we are still working on

Stay tuned
