International Lindy Hop Festival | Cape Town: 23-25 March 2018

This is THE swing event of the year and is not to be missed. Mother City Hop, organised by Cape Town Swing, features a stellar lineup of teachers from Sweden, the USA and Italy, visiting lindy hoppers from 20 different countries, a ton of inspiring workshops for all levels, parties every night and performances by the pros.

The event is in its third year, after proving itself a popular international event. Tickets go on sale on 1 September, but in the meantime pre-registration is open for lead-follow pairs in the same level.

Mother City Hop caters to everyone, with workshops for all levels (from absolute beginners with zero experience, to advanced dancers with several years’ experience), and tickets ranging from party passes to full passes.

Some testimonials:

“Mother City Hop was the best time I’ve had in the one and a half years since coming to South Africa. Everyone was great. It didn’t matter that I’d never even heard of Lindy hop before since everyone was willing to teach, dance and just have fun.” — Michael, 2017

“I enjoyed very much the taster classes and the organized tours, which made this event really stand out for me, among the many different lindy hop camps, exchanges and workshops I have attended around the world. Getting to try out new dance styles, visit awesome local sights, and experience the rich culture of South Africa during MCH was so special.” — Rik, 2017

“Mother City Hop was a wonderful experience. Extremely well organised, excellent programme, fantastic venues, fabulous parties, friendly people. Difficult to single out a particular aspect as being a favourite part.”
