Solidarity Fund

As Hofstad Hop we believe in the power of dance to bring people together, regardless of their financial circumstances. To foster an inclusive and diverse community, we invite you to contribute to a Solidarity Fund, but please don’t feel pressured to do so.

What is the Solidarity Fund?

The Solidarity Fund is a special initiative designed to provide financial assistance to dancers who are passionate about lindy hop but may not have the means to afford the full price of the festival. By contributing to this fund, you help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in this vibrant celebration of dance, regardless of their financial situation.

When you register for the festival, you will have the option to make a donation to the Solidarity Fund. Any amount, big or small, makes a significant difference and helps us create a welcoming environment for all dancers.

How Does It Work?

  1. During registration: Simply add a donation amount of your choice when you register for the festival, or choose the option that you’d like to make use of the fund.
  2. Build a Stronger Community: Your contribution goes directly into the Solidarity Fund, which will be exclusively used to provide discounts to dancers in need. In case the donations exceed the requests from the solidarity fund, the remaining money will be used for a dancing-related good cause.
  3. Get a reward!: If you want you can choose from the following rewards:
    • Donation above €15 – pick a song! Do you have a favourite swing song? Leave it in the comments and we’ll ask our dj’s to play it. Don’t worry, we won’t announce whose request it was, but we can give you a personal heads-up so you can be ready with your dance crush.
