GSDS presents…

We are happy to let you know about the CHASE FESTIVAL 2016!
Join us in Heidelberg, Germany on JUNE 16th – 19th, 2016.


We are very proud of this festival, which has a unique concept: the classes are all about digging into & drawing inspiration from the original old-timers with the help of vintage clips. Each class is based on a favourite vintage clip of the teacher, and you’ll learn new ideas for your lindy hopping – taking the best from the old days and bringing it into the now. As we will play the clips during the class you also learn about the history of our dance!

Heidelberg is our beautiful location and all the parties will take place in the historic city hall!

Once again we will be featuring the world class Hot Sugar Band from Paris for your live music pleasure.

Do you have a hard time getting into events because you don’t have a partner? We have
a solution for that! You can register with a team. For every 4 couples in a team, we accept
one single participant! Sounds great? When you sign up, you can create a team and with
that be the registration manager for your team. You can already create your team from
