Galway’s ultimate Lindy Hop Celebration returns in 2013 with four amazing guest instructors, another round of the Galway Lindy Hop Championships, and a new venue, the beautiful Meyrick Hotel Ballroom, in the heart of Galway
The teachers this year are the fabulous Skye Humphries, Naomi Uyama, Scott Cupit and Robyn Larsen.
Based on feedback from last years event, a number of changes have been made to make this years Lindy Hopper’s Delight an even better experience. Please read the following carefully:
To give students maximum exposure to our guest instructors, we are reducing the number of levels from three to two, and are completely eliminating beginner workshops.
