Volunteers needed!

The board of Swing in Rhythm is made up entirely of volunteers; this means that sometimes we need help to get everything running smoothly! Are you interested in joining our team?

Event coordinator


We are looking for a motivated event coordinator to help us organise great dance events!

We seek an event coordinator to help search for venues and bands, arrange the studio calendar and coordinate any events or parties that we organise.

Approximately 1 hour per week, with additional hours when an event is organised.

If you are passionate about swing dancing, have a talent for organising and would like to contribute to the Rotterdam swing scene, contact us at: swinginrhythm@gmail.com.

Location manager


We are looking for a location manager!

We seek a motivated and flexible person that will help us to create a lively and cosy place for the students and the teachers.

We need someone who can ensure that the studio is kept in a good condition, can coordinate with all the renters of the studio, liaise with our cleaning company and plan our studio renovations.

Approximately 1 hour per week, with additional hours if there are studio related issues or tasks.

Ideally, you live close to the studio and are handy at fixing things when needed!

A New Year, New Dancers - a New Way of Learning!

As of January 2023, our absolute beginner courses* will be taught with the 'ELEF' model:

Everybody leads, Everybody follows!

Why are we doing this?

No more waiting lists!

A common issue, particularly for follow dancers.

No need for a partner to join workshops!

Everyone gets an equal chance to join workshops.

No more imbalance in classes!

Everyone gets the chance to dance more often, without having to stand in a 'gap' in the circle.

More inclusivity & less reliance on outdated gender roles!

A more welcoming atmosphere for LGBTQ+ dancers.

Improved technique!

An understanding of both roles makes a person a better dancer.

More fun at social dances!

Being able to dance with everyone in the room, what could be more fun than that?

*Please note - the ELEF model will only be applied to the green absolute beginner lindy hop courses, and the balboa green level 2 course.
All higher level courses (lindy green 2, green 3, blue, etc) will continue with fixed roles, and as new students join in later terms, the ELEF role will be expanded to higher levels.
