You say one more dance? We say one more BRUX! - SOLD OUT!

Your enthusiasm during our first, second and third editions blew us away. This is why Brussels will be hosting its fourth Lindy Hop exchange in Autumn 2017!

Once again, lindy hoppers from across Europe will flock to Brussels for a weekend-long stream of discovery, bonding, fun and of course, swing dancing. You can count on top quality bands, fabulous venues, inventive activities, and a warm welcome. 

Check our announcements at www.thebrux.be or on our facebook page, and check out our glamorous pictures from last's year edition!

See you soon on the dancefloor,
The BRUX Team
