How can I cancel my registration?

If you cancel before 19 July 2018, we will refund 50%. Cancellations after that date unfortunately cannot be refunded.

What methods of payment do you accept?

How quickly do I need to pay?

I haven’t received my registration confirmation by email yet. What must I do?

- When registering, please check to ensure that your email address is correct. If you think that you have not correctly received your registration confirmation, please contact swingtartu@gmail.com. 

What happens if I’m on the waiting list?

- Upon registering, you will automatically be added to the waiting list. We will check your choice of group, and if there are available places, we will register you and send you a confirmation email. The first confirmation emails will be sent out in the first weeks after the start of registration. NB! Based on our experience from previous years, it is likely that there will be waiting lists for individual registrants (we will take in a maximum of one extra participant per six couples registered). So ask around in your social circles to find a partner with whom you can register so that your place is more secure.

For which levels are you running classes?

- We will run classes at three different levels (continuers, intermediate, and advanced). To join the continuers’ course, you need to have completed at least the lindy hop beginners’ course, you know the basic 6- and 8-beat rhythms, and you can manage the swing out and lindy turn. To ensure that people of a similar level are grouped in the same classes, we ask you to fill out the registration form accurately with regards to your experience and dance ability. Teachers retain the right to change your group level if they find it to be necessary.​ Teachers preserve the right to change your group level if they find it’s necessary.​ 

Do I need to register with a partner?
