Galway Lindy Hop Championships
22 November, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 am€15
Welcome to the Galway Lindy Hop Championships 2013.
The first event in December 2012 set a standard that swing dancers across Ireland could be proud of. We look forward to raising that bar even higher at this, the second GLHC!!
This event is about fun and friendship!! It should inspire dancers to raise the standard of their dancing, create bonds of friendship with their peers, and showcase not just the talent, but also the enthusiasm, of Ireland’s Lindy Hop community
Doors will open early and spectators and competitors alike are welcome to come on in, have a dance, enjoy a drink and soak up the splendour of The Meyrick Hotel in the centre of Galway.
Provisionally, the competition will start at 8.00pm with the order of events to be finalised. The competition will kick off with an introduction of our all-knowing, all-seeing judges, followed by heats (if required) of the various disciplines, with the finals for each event held at the very end of the schedule.
During the course of proceedings, we will take a break so you can catch our ‘half-time’ show, featuring a number of entertainment pieces headlined by our guest judges/instructors.
Once the competition is completed, the social element of the night once again takes over before we turn to the glamour part of the evening – the awards ceremony – during which we can show our appreciation for all those brave enough to compete and award place-getters in each event their hard-earned trophies.
If you want to be a part of this special night you can buy your ticket online here and pick it up on the night or at any of our classes. Tickets will also be available on the night (subject to availability) :
