Welcome to the International Lindy Hop Championships! Please join us at the beautiful Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel for another year of world class social dancing, competitions and amazing bands!
Who we are
It’s the event’s mission to recognize the international presence and appeal of Lindy Hop , while preserving its spirit and giving the dance the respect and honor it deserves.”
Tena Morales, Nina Gilkenson and Sylvia Sykes have come together to realize their dream of creating an international competition weekend that provides fantastic competitions organized, performed and judged at the highest levels possible and inclusive of all nations wishing to participate.
Integral to our mission is also making an event that we can give back to the community.
It’s the goal of ILHC to hold competitions fostering the spirit of the early swing-dances, based on joy and friendly support; you know, the healthy kind.
The judging panel for the competitions is a who’s who of Lindy Hop today. All of our judges were selected not just for their extensive reputations and accomplishments, but for the respect and professionalism that they bring with them.
