We’re excited to announce that this year’s ILHC is being held as a special online event!
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we feel this is the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold the event in person for the Lindy Hop community. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.
We believe this is an opportunity for our international community to come together and for people from across the globe to be able to watch and participate at ILHC--now, more than any year before. We further believe competition brings people together, provides a creative outlet, and encourages performance at a high level--all of which we need in these times.
So Virtual ILHC will take place online November 27-29, 2020! This year will feature 3 days of stellar competitions, our juniors program and juniors competition, top-level instruction, thought provoking LEDs, and fun dance parties.
Our mission is to respect and honor the spirit of Lindy Hop by hosting an international competition weekend which is organized, performed, and judged at the highest levels possible and inclusive of all nations wishing to participate. With collaboration by Lindy Hop experts, we are coordinating an exciting online experience to showcase our Lindy Hop dance to the world. See our competition details.
YOUR support of the event helps to fuel our mission. ILHC has already incurred expenses related to what would have been the in-person event as well as other yearly costs. You can support by joining in on the fun. Also, because of the financial hard times some of our Lindy Family is facing, we have donation opportunities to give passes to others that may need help to attend.
Our ILHC team will be reaching out directly to our currently registered attendees with information about providing refunds, transfers to Virtual ILHC, or converting part or all of paid registration fees as a charitable gift.
We look forward to bringing you Virtual ILHC 2020 as a reimagined event that brings dancers, competitors, friends and family together in a showcase that celebrates the global Lindy Hop Community!
