We are Swing Out Loud, the Lindy Hop association of Enschede!

Dance, make new friends and have fun! That is why Swing Out Loud was founded and ever since people have enjoyed dancing to Swing Jazz music in Enschede. The main dance style at Swing Out Loud is Lindy Hop, although we do sometimes offer courses in other Swing Jazz related dance styles. Lindy Hop is danced with a partner. It's an improvised dance that is very expressive, joyful and leaves room for personal character. It can be danced wild and fast, with spectacular air steps but also slow and smooth, elegant or sexy. Partners are almost never fixed, part of the fun is that you (learn to) dance with everyone.

Although we learn and encourage our dancers to have good technique and musicality, we find it far more important that you have fun while dancing. That is why we offer lessons in Lindy Hop (Wednesdays), but more importantly organize social dances. Each lesson ends with social dancing and we also organize Tea Dances and End Of The Block Parties as well as occasional workshops. If you're interested in dancing with us you can join one of the open lessons which are at the start of every season (beginning of September) and at the midway point (mid-February). We also offer drop-in classes for beginners at every Sunday Tea Dance!Keep an eye on the calendar page on this website and give us a like on Facebook to never miss an event!


The original founders of Swing Out Loud made this incredible fun video, where they Swing Dance together. This video finally got updated when our Roaring Twente Aftermovie came out. However, this is just too cool to remove, don’t you think?
