It all started from a brief conversation at one of the Daily Meetings in Herräng during week 5 in early August. The conversation lead to a short meeting among some of our year-around staff and a decision was made: a winter weekend workshop, in Herräng! We have never tried doing something like that before. It's new to us and it's new to you. Our ambition is to offer a small scale back-to-the-roots kind of event. The artistic content will very much hold on to the Harlem traditions while the logistics and infrastructure will balance between the manual days of the 1990's and the electronic world of today. The program holds three levels of Lindy Hop classes plus some additional solo jazz, tap, mambo and african dancing, a line of Swedish instructors, Hornsgatan Ramblers and hopefully some snow and ice. Welcome to the winter version of the summer version. And as usual: it's all Jazz and it's all Unorthodox.
