This Sunday and every Sunday, you and yours can come down to Golden Gate Park for a free swing dance party open to all ages and levels of experience.
Every Sunday for 14 years – since when it was started by Chad Kubo and Ken Watanabe – the Lindy in the Park dance party (affectionately known as LitP) has been drawing crowds of 100 and 200 people.
Beginners can take a free lesson from noon to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. No need to bring a partner: they will be rotating leaders and followers throughout the lesson.
As an added bonus, every week they feature a fun little routine for everyone to do together. The choreography is posted online so that you can learn the steps ahead of time and jump in like a regular.
LitP happens from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, even on holidays. The only thing that stops Lindy in the Park is inclement weather and natural disasters. You can find the lindy hoppers on the south sidewalk of John F. Kennedy Drive between 8th Avenue and 10th Avenue, between the de Young Museum and the north entrance to the Music Concourse.
