PARKING: Parking is free at the Reitz Union Parking Garage after 4:30 pm. For most other parking lots at UF, parking decal restrictions lift after 5:30 pm. We recommend coming 15 minutes early if it's your first time coming to the Reitz Union at UF, to allow for enough time to find the garage and the dance studios.
COVID POLICY: For your safety and the safety of others, masks are required for this event.
*UPPER LEVEL POLICY: If you are interested in taking the Upper Level Lindy Hop Lesson, we ask that you do so only after taking a minimum of 4 Beginner Lindy Hop Lessons with us. While there will be no formal level testing, the difficulty of the Upper Level lessons will be set with this minimum requirement in mind.
Looking forward to dancing with you.
