summer in Sweden, anyone?
The wildest Lindy Hop camp in the world is probably Herrang in Sweden
(http://www.herrang.com/), four consecutive weeks of Midnight Sun Lindy
Hop with days full of workshops by the best teachers in the world and
all night dancing. This year, the camp runs from July 5 until August 2.
What more could one want after a solid month of 24/7 Lindy Hop?
