In celebration of the 4th of July, we have invited the passionate swing dancers and owners of the dance school Happy Feet Studio, Kuno Rasmussen and Malgorzata W. Rasmussen, to Tivoli. They will be teaching Tivoli's guests, and everyone is welcome to join. Whether it's your first time dancing or you've been dancing all your life, everyone can participate.

Lindy Hop is an energetic and lively American dance created by African Americans in Harlem, New York, in the late 1920s. This swing dance evolved alongside the vibrant music of the jazz era and is known for its improvisational style and acrobatic moves. As one of the most iconic dance forms in the swing dance family, Lindy Hop is a celebration of freedom and creative expression, reflecting the spirit of innovation and resilience that characterized its origins.
On Independence Day, we not only celebrate the history of the United States but also the rich cultural heritage that Lindy Hop represents and its continued influence on dance and music around the world.
