Camp Hollywood is one of the largest and longest running swing dance camps in the world. Now in its 17th year, we're proud to offer the finest selection of international dance instructors, live music and competitors which provide a fun-filled long weekend with something for everyone! We offer classes in Lindy Hop, Shag, Balboa, and various swing line dances in levels from Beginner to Advanced, dance contests for all levels, afterhours dancing, live music jams all over the hotel, and lots of spontaneous shenanigans!
We're pleased to announce we have been selected to be a part of The Lindy Hop World Cup Project!
During 2014 so far, there have been three World Cup Lindy Hop competitions, The Snowball in Stockholm, Rock That Swing Festival in Munich, and Camp Swing It in Korea. We are now happy to announce that Camp Hollywood will be the forth World Cup!
The aim of the World Cup is to unite competition couples, share fantastic Lindy Hop, inspire dancers all over the world and in the long run boost up the World Championship in Lindy Hop.
When a couple compete at a World Cup they gain points in a ranking system. The top three couples in Open Lindy and Showcase will receive different sponsorship to participate at the World Cup Finale at The Snowball 2014.
Let the games begin!
