Congratulations

Congratulations

Seems like we need to have a stern talk with our Easter bunny - the places where the eggs were hidden were apparently too hard to be found and we are very sorry! So instead of drawing the winner from the right answers, we decided to give the prize to the person who came closest to giving the right answer and also put a lot of time and creativity into this.
So @Margit Sullivan: CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve won a www.swingstep.tv course of your choice!

Hey everybody,
As some of us will not be able to go for an Easter egg hunt with their families and friends in the offline world, we asked the easter bunny to hide some eggs in various places on our different social media sites. So, if you’re up for it, why don’t you join our online hunt?
Each egg will have one or more letters on them and if you can put them in the right order, you’ll get our secret message.
Everyone who sends us the secret message via PM (DON’T POST IT IN THE COMMENTS ;) ) will have the chance to win access to one swingstep.tv online courses of their choice!

In short:
🥚 search for the eggs on our various social media (pages, instagram, our new www.swingstep.tv page...)
🐰Figure out the secret message
🥚Send it to us via PM (on fb or instagram) until Wed the 15th of April 2020
🐰Your name gets put in a pot and we draw the winner - if it’s you, you’ll get one swingstep.tv online courses for free :)

ONLINE COURSES: when you can’t go to dance class, the dance class comes to you!

Hello everyone,

The situation around the corona virus and containment efforts have been changing rapidly in the last days and we are trying to adapt as best we can. As many other dance schools we have closed our studios down completely in both cities as of Saturday 14th of March. We already miss seeing your faces around, but we do support the decisions and recommendations of officials and experts and believe that it is the healthiest decision if we all stay home as much as possible.

We know that these are challenging times for everyone: our team, the swing dance community, society itself both in Germany and worldwide. We are very sad to read post after post from dance teachers and musicians who are struggling to make their income and at the same time we are very impressed by how the community grows together and so many people have already started initiatives to support everyone that is affected by this crisis financially. This makes us stay positive that we will come out of this crisis stronger as a community and as a society.

As you might know we run two local dance schools in Berlin and Heidelberg and several international workshops (eg: Chase Festival and Cirque du Solo). We are able to do so because we have a team of more than 15 people, many of them relying on SwingStep as their main income. Additionally our three studios in the two cities have long-term rental contracts. Closing down our studios and also being unsure about being able to run any of our planned workshops within the next months means that most of our income sources are currently frozen, while most of our running costs are persistent. As hard as this is for us to say: we are relying on your support right now more than ever.

But the good thing about having a large team is that we are able to react quickly! So we’ve been working hard in the last days to provide you with “corona-free” swing dance alternatives by setting up a completely new system that allows us to bring our classes right into your living rooms. We will begin course round 3/2020 on March 30th in an online format where you will receive the teaching videos and we will have weekly opportunities for feedback and answers to your questions. We believe that you will get out a lot of this material, no matter whether you have a dance partner at hand or not.

Here are some more details about how this is going to work:
- You sign up to all our classes on our new online platform at SwingStep.tv
- if you have already signed-up via our old system (the questionnaire we sent out on Saturday) we will import your registration into the new system. [No worries: We will not just import your old sign-up from when you and we were under the impression that we could do “normal” classes]
- Starting on March 30th you will get access to one class each week. The class will be provided in a 60 - 85 minute video that you can just play on your device and dance along. It is structured just like a regular class with explanations by our dance teachers and music to practice to.
- It’s not possible to give you personal advice in a static video, but we don’t want you to miss out on this chances, so we are going to offer online feedback opportunities during the week where you can ask the teachers questions about the material.
- You can book all of our online courses without a partner, even the partnered courses, and we are going to make sure to give you a lot of ideas on how to work on partnered material alone, so once you are able to practice with a partner you can hit the ground running.

You can sign up for the online classes already now by visiting our new e-learning platform: https://swingstep.tv/

This way you can be sure to get the content and continue your Lindy Hop journey through these tough times. The big advantage is that since we are offering these classes online there are no geological restrictions, so if you know of any other dancers that are looking for online learning solutions, we would love it if you could support us by recommending this service.

Theoretically there are no capacity limits, but since we do want to offer live feedback we will have to limit at least this part of the offer at one point. Since we have a big team we are optimistic that we can provide feedback to more people than in our usual classes, but since we have never done this before we will learn as we go, alongside with you!

We would be super happy if you want to support us by joining us for this experiment - we have already prepared some courses that are based on the courses we normally offer offline and some new stuff that we will design specifically for practicing online at home.

As soon as the physical contact restrictions are lifted and we feel it’s safe again, we will resume our in-studio classes, but right now we can’t possibly estimate when that will be, so turn your living room into a dance floor and join us online!

Swingingly yours,
your SwingStep team

P.S.: They all say ‘dance like nobody’s watching’, well now they aren’t so go ahead...

Hallo ihr Lieben,
heute hätten wir normalerweise unsere Practice Time und Swingin' Friday, die wir, wie ihr wisst, ja abgesagt haben. Wie ihr euch vorstellen könnt, beschäftigt unser ganzes Team die Situation sehr und wir sind traurig, dass wir gerade auf unser geliebtes gemeinsames Tanzen weitgehend verzichten müssen und besorgt, wann und wie es mit uns weitergeht. Vielleicht geht es ja auch ein paar von Euch ähnlich?
Deswegen würden wir der „Corona-Depression“ gerne was Positives entgegensetzen: Habt ihr Lust, uns zu erzählen, was euch an den Tanzkursen bei uns gefällt? Das würde wirklich ein Licht in unsere Woche bringen :)

[english]
Hey everyone,
as you know, normally we would have our Practice Time and Swingin' Friday later, which we cancelled as you also know. As you can imagine, a lot of our teams energy is focused on the current situation. We are sad that we cannot dance at community-events together and worried, when and how it will continue with us. Maybe some of you have similiar thoughts?
Thats why we would like to put something positive against the "Corona-Depression". Do you want to tell us, why you like taking our classes? It would really brighten up our week :)

Dear dancers,

While each day there is new information coming to light regarding the spread of Covid-19, we decided to take further precautionary measures. As maintaining our personal hygiene is the best way to prevent personal infection, we agree with official statements that the right course of action is to try and slow down the spread. Our first step in trying to do our part is to limit events with unregistered participants, therefore

- Socials are cancelled until further notice
- Practice time is also cancelled until further notice

We are in contact with our local community health centers (Gesundheitsämter) and seek professional advice on what further precautions we should take. We have talked to them about the nature of our classes and the dance and have sought more information on what we can do. We have received official advice that currently there is no recommendation for us to change the nature of our classes, but the situation can change any day. We decided to be proactive and will already establish the following guidelines for any classes you visit:

- We will refrain from calling out partner rotations in our classes and leave partner rotation as your individual choice. You can choose to form smaller groups with 2 - 5 people and rotate amongst each other or can stay with your partner for the entire class, depending on what’s best for you.

- Since our teachers are seeing a lot of people during the week they will refrain from dancing with students and keep personal advice verbal.

- We will reserve more time in class for breaks in which we want you to use our hand sanitizers and / or wash your hands in our bathrooms.

You can help us by holding each other, yourselves and also us accountable for following these guidelines. Speak up if you feel uneasy and contact us if you have any more advice. We are hopeful that with these guidelines we can help containing the further spread of the virus while continuing to enjoy our favorite social activity as much as possible until the situation has stabilized and we can get back to a "normal lindy hopper life". In the meantime, stay informed - we recommend the following sources:

Robert Koch Institut: https://www.rki.de/
Daily Podcast with Prof. Dr. Christian Drosten, Director of the Charité Berlin:

We are evaluating our actions daily and will keep you informed.

Stay healthy!

Viren, Winter, Schutzmaßnahmen

Hey Ihr Lieben,

wie einige von Euch haben auch wir uns Gedanken über ein gutes Verhalten in Bezug auf den Corona-Virus gemacht. Wir wollen dabei nicht in Panik verfallen - es gibt zur Zeit laut DTV keinen Grund, generell vom gemeinsam Tanzen abzusehen (verlässliche Infos gibt es zum Beispiel auf der Seite des Robert-Koch-Instituts: https://www.rki.de/…/In…/EpidBull/Archiv/2020/07/Art_01.html) - , aber die Gelegenheit nutzen, um uns als Tanzszene an guten Umgang miteinander und gute Hygienemaßnahmen zu erinnern.

Wenn Du Dich krank fühlst, komm bitte nicht zum Unterricht oder zu den Partys. Wir haben viele Möglichkeiten, wie Du das Verpasste nachholen kannst, ob Recaps, Practise-Time, Parallelkurse, etc.. (Dass bei ansteckenden Krankheiten von der Unterrichtsteilnahme aus Schutz der anderen und der Lehrer abzusehen ist, steht übrigens auch in unseren AGB ;) ) Wir wissen, dass es blöd ist, Kurse verpassen zu müssen - aber es ist noch blöder aus Versehen viele Leute anzustecken.

In den Kursen und bei Partys nutzt bitte die Hygienemöglichkeiten, die da sind. Das heißt:
- Wasch Dir die Hände vor dem Kurs (mind. 30 Sek gründlich von allen Seiten)

Wasch Dir auch die Hände jedes Mal, wenn Du Dein Gesicht angefasst hast.

Husten oder Niesen am besten in ein Einwegtaschentuch und das dann direkt in den Mülleimer. (Der Tipp mit dem Ellenbogen ist beim Tanzen etwas schwierig, weil wir uns dort auch häufig anfassen.) Auch danach ist Händewaschen eine gute Idee. ;)

Nutzt gerne die Desinfektionsmittel, die in all unseren Räumen leicht zugänglich sind.

Lasst uns gemeinsam aufeinander achten, ohne durchzudrehen, aber auch ohne unnötig uns selbst und andere zu gefährden.
Happy Swinging!

Euer SwingStep Team

Hi there! Can anybody host two lindyhoppers for 2 days? (3 nights, Nov 1 23:00 ... Nov 4 9:00) I with my girlfriend Ulyana going to Berlin for a weekend. We are young russian tourists from Saint Petersburg. Now we live in Budapest. It is our fifth eurotrip together: travels, foreign culture and living are our passion. This is our second visit to Berlin. Actually, we fell in love with freedom of the city last night. We are going to dance some lindy, meet a few friends and looking forward to new friends!

I would be really grateful. thanks, Mani :)
