“Lindy-Hop, the dance style that we dance and promote, has been known worldwide for a long time. […] In Romania, Lindy-Hop has become known and appreciated by the local public and by fans of the musical genre quite recently. But even so, the interest in this dance grows very quickly. The largest Lindy-Hop communities are in Bucharest and Brasov,” said Cristina Ciobanu, festival coordinator.
LindyBug 2019 will take place in several venues in Bucharest, namely at Copper's Pub, in the Universitatii Square area, on Friday and Sunday evening, at Vertigo Dance School, in Pipera, on Saturday night, and at the Costin Bucura and Deco Dance halls, in the Unirii Square area.
