Hofstad Hop Festival

Your end of summer swing festival​

September 27 - 29, 2019

Thank you for everything


What better way to dance out summer than on the beach? The Hague is known for our beautiful stretch of beach dotted with summer beach clubs and restaurants. 

Our Friday and Saturday night venue is the beautiful restaurant Zilt at the end of The Pier in Scheveningen (The Hague). Sitting above the waves, this two-level venue will feature a main ballroom complete with live bands as well as a second level dance hall featuring alternate swing styles.

On Sunday afternoon we will wind down with craft beers and good food at De Prael Brouwerij.  

Our Three Bands

We are delighted to announce that we will feature live music at both our Friday and Saturday Parties! On Friday, we have The Happy Feet Orchestra from The Hague.

On Saturday, the Hop ‘Sh bam Connection from Gent and the Red Hot Percolators will be playing for us!


Hofstad Hop has swung high and low for the best international teachers for our students. Our seven-person teaching team values musicality, creativity and just plain having fun. While all of our teachers primarily teach Lindy Hop, they draw from a background of modern dance, movement studies, blues, CollegiateShag, Hollywood style Lindy and Solo Charleston.  These classes will help you take your dancing to the next level with new moves and stylings while encouraging you to explore your own aesthetic.
