“Lindy hop”: dancing meetings in Barcelona
You may thing it is a funny thing. That it is something from the movies. And it really is both of them. The good news is that you have access to these amazing meetings where people of all ages and backgrounds, decide to have a good time together linked by a music style that sounds and invites you to move. Little by little, you begin to dance and as your fears and embarrassment disappear, you find yourself dancing with that boy or girl that you don’t even know. That is the aim of a dancing meeting.
Barcelona has several meetings of this kind. The participants choose the most comfortable dance for them and create a “club” where everybody can feel the freedom of the music. We want to give you some options that will allow you to get in touch with this experience during your days in the city.
In this first article, we will talk about a popular dance called “Lindy hop”. It comes from the EEUU and is gaining followers with quite a lot of speed. People like to dress with particular clothes that bring them to the 30s. Dancing and socialising are the two principles of this style, so linked to the movie culture.
Every first and third Sunday of the month, the lovers of the “Lindy hop” have an appointment in the “Parc de la Ciutadella”, at 6pm. Also every Sunday at 12pm, they can meet in the “Plaza de la Virreina”, and every third Sunday of the month, there is a concert in the “Apolo” theatre, with the Big Band.
Even thought you are not very into dancing in front of unknown viewers, attending one of these meetings will give you the chance to meet new people and have a completely different time. Forget your previous boundaries and let the swinging rhythm fill you from the inside. You won’t be able to stop it till your whole body start moving as magic.
After the meeting, there is nothing better that knowing that you have a luxury and comfortable apartment for you and your family of friends. Completely equipped and with privileged views of the centre, the sea, etc. The perfect accommodation for your days in Barcelona. You definitely deserve this treasure that will fascinate you and help you fall in love with the city.
