Lindy Fridays is a Not-For-Profit organisation and we run based on some founding principles. These define what we are as a organisation and what we aim to achieve.
We are “for the Lindy Hop community and run entirely by volunteers from the Lindy Hop community”, so if there’s anything we don’t provide that you think we should, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org or post your ideas on our facebook group and we’ll see how you can best help us do just that.
