Scholarship

Herräng Dance Camp Scholarship Program 2024

Herräng Dance Camp warmly welcomes as many people as possible into its family. That is why every year we offer this scholarship to people in countries where the financial reality is often significantly different than in Sweden. We aim to rotate the countries every year so that Herräng Dance Camp continues to grow through the richness that diversity brings. Please carefully consider your financial situation before applying; we wish these spots go to individuals who cannot afford to join the camp without this support.

             ✓ Countries for 2024: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico, Poland
             ✓ Full time program at a 50% discount
             ✓ 60 spots (20 per week) – First come first served

It is good to know that if the spots are not filled by 30 April, we will consider applicants from all countries and will, if so, announce this on social media.

Are you from Ukraine?
We would like to offer a Party Pass and accommodation (General Accommodation or a tent spot) for free to all visitors from Ukraine for HDC 2024. Please contact us for this via email at info@herrang.com.

Funds

Next Generation Fund and Norma Miller Elders Fund

Next Generation Fund

Herräng is committed to giving back and supporting expanded access to the Black community that created this beautiful dance form of Lindy Hop that we all celebrate and love. We hope you share our conviction that it is past time for action in this regard. That’s why we are privileged to announce the creation of the Next Generation Fund.

The Fund aims to provide scholarships for Black dancers between 18 and 30 years old for the unique dance immersion experience singularly offered at Herräng Dance Camp.

USD 20 000 (approximately SEK 200 000) will let us bring 10 dancers in 2024. We hope we can count on you to contribute to this special project. No amount is too small. Whatever you can give is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to contribute, and we hope you will, you will find the payment instructions for a bank transfer below. This information must be included in the payment. If information is missing, the payment will not be processed. If available, please also include the reference ‘Next Generation’.
