Save Now on Registration | Full Class Schedule Posted
As one dancer recently said, “Lindyfest is an institution.” To us, this is a great compliment. For over twenty years, we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to bring you world-class dance instruction from TOP-NOTCH teachers. This year, all our competitions are social-dance competitions, which means less stress (and practice) for competitors and more time social dancing for everyone else. We sincerely hope you’ll join us this year!
For full-weekend registration, we currently have a few spots left in our $219 tier. The at-the-door price is $250, so sign up now and save yourself 31 bucakaroos. Just think what you can do with that money–buy a tank of gas, buy six extra-caffeinated drinks from Starbucks, get a thirty-minute foot massage. Let’s face it–you’re probably going to need all those things for Lindyfest, so you might as well be a smart shopper.

Lindyfest wants to know your story. We’ve started a series of posts on our Facebook page called #iamlindyfest, in which we highlight individual dancers, competitors, and instructors–people just like you.
This series takes a look at what makes us all human and what makes us a community. If you know someone with a great story you think we need to talk to, send us a message about them through our Facebook page.
Have your own #iamlindyfest story to share? Go for it! Tag us on social media, use our hashtag, and tell us who you are, where you’re from, and when you started dancing and why you love it. If you have a pet frog or your armpits sweat whenever someone asks you to dance, tell us that too!
See you in Texas,
The Lindyfest and Lone Star Championships Crew
