About:
Lindyworks is Toronto Lindy Hop’s annual weekend of workshop wonderfulness! It’s all about Lindy Hop and Vernacular Jazz dancing. Our goal is to put on a weekend of solid dance instruction that both challenges and inspires dancers during the day and to host evening parties that feature the best swinging jazz music and are a big bushel of fun.


Past workshop instructors include Laura Glaess & Todd Yannacone, Brittany & Dargoff, Alain Wong & Gen St-Lo, Lennart Westerlund & Ewa Burak, Daniel & Åsa Heedman, Alain Fragman & Sylwia Bielec, and Evita Arce and Michael Jagger.
