No you don’t, although you are of course welcome to bring one.

At Hepcats Copenhagen we emphasize the social aspect of Lindy Hop and we therefore change dance partners constantly during the classes and workshops.

You should be aware, though, that it is easier to get accepted to the classes if you bring a partner, since we are rather strict about the lead / follow ratio, so that everybody can get a good experience with lots of dancing.

It does help to be in good physical shape, although on the beginners’ levels, the intensity is not very high.
Lindy Hop can also help improve your fitness in a fun and social way.
