No, most people register individually. But because lindy hop is danced in pairs, follower and leader, it is important that we have a fairly even balance of followers and leaders on our courses. Which dance roll you choose, follower or leader, is entirely free without any rules.
We aim to have a fairly even balance between leaders and followers, so unfortunately when you register to a course it is not guaranteed that you will get a place. You will get information about this in an email that is sent to you within a few days of registering for the course. In this email you will find out which queue number you got.
If you are told that you did not get a place but are in a queue then your registration is no longer binding. But you will remain in the system in a queue until the course starts and you may still get offered a place on the course if we get more registrations or some cancelations. You can even get a place on the course if you yourself find a partner that registers specifically as your dance partner on the course, as long as the course is not full. Once you get a place on the course, which could even happen just before the course starts, you will be notified by email.
If you are accepted to the course you must pay the course price before the first lesson. Details on how to pay will be included in the confirmation of acceptance to the course that you will have received by email.
All who register are place directly in a queue as soon as the registration comes in. We usually quickly confirm whether you got a place on the course or alternatively, which queue number you have.
Registrations are binding!
Our dance courses are popular and we must know how many places are available to offer, therefore registrations are binding. If, despite registering for a course, you realize you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible before the course starts. Otherwise you may be billed the whole course price.
