Lindyfest Starts Tomorrow!
Word. Get excited. Lindyfest is THIS week. We can’t wait to see you.
Hey all you fancy dancers. We’re glad that you’re a part of Lindyfest, and we we hope to see you this week, whether for a few hours or the entire weekend. Here are a few last-minute details to help make your weekend at Lindyfest even better.
In fact, let’s start with a video from the organizers:
The Official Lindyfest App!
That’s right, Lindyfest has gone digital. This year we have an app (that’s application, not appetizer) in order to make your experiece easier, better, faster, quicker, and all-around improved.
The app is through WHOVA and includes a full class schedule that you can customize based on what classes you wish to take. (We’re saving trees and won’t have printed schedules this year, so the website and this app are the best way for you to know what’s up!) Additionally, there are bulletin boards where you can stay connected, get the latest updates, and NOT MISS A THING. Plus, you can message other attendees. (Make plans, make friends!) That’s right, not only will you be connected on the dance floor, you’ll be connected every minute of the weekend.
Doesn’t that feel great?
Last-Minute Registrations Option
Online registration has closed, but you can still register at the event. Just show up and go to the registration desk. It’s that easy. You can come to just one dance, get a dance-only pass, or register for the whole weekend. Sunday night, which is LINDY AND SOUL NIGHT, is only $20. For more information about pricing, click here.
