Havel Hop 2016 – Germany

Monday, 9th May, 2016

So Havel Hop 2016, in Germany, was the next stop for JiveSwing teaching duo Joseph & Charlotte, on the first weekend in May.

It was their 4th visit, but this year was by far the best, with dancers from all over Germany and other countries.

Joseph & Charlotte were working alongside some of the worlds top teachers and competitors, such as Skye & Marie (USA/SWE), Peter & Naomi (USA), Sharon & Tony (UK), Lisa & Fabien (FR).

It was a really good team working together, as they were all so inspiring and such a pleasure to work and hang out with, creating a happy camp.. Joseph & Charlotte taught a mixture of Lindy Hop and Swing Blues..


The students worked really hard, producing great results, whilst having so much fun, together. However, after the last few classes, Joseph & Charlotte left their trade mark of wearing everyone out..

On the Saturday evening, all teachers provided a performance, where Joseph & Charlotte produced an impromptu and improvised social dance, to one of their favourite tracks..

It was amazing to have breakfast and dinner, outdoors near the water, with our fellow teachers and students. 

 A  massive thanks goes out to the Havel Hop organisers Talea, Holger, Franchesca and Veronica, for putting on such a great weekend and looking after us so well. Looking forward to doing it all again..
