Dance-Only Pass

Lindy Bout XI Dance-Only Passes cost $80 and provide admission to the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening dances.  We will be selling a limited number of passes. SOLD OUT!

Participants with a Dance-Only Pass are not be eligible to compete in Lindy Bout Matches.  Although anyone can buy a Dance-Only Pass, they are intended for Vancouver dancers that want to drop-in to the dances and guarantee their spot.  

At-the-Door Entry

There will be limited space at the door for dances, workshops, and all Lindy Bout XI events. Drop-in admission is on a first-come-first-served basis. Just show up at the door to pay; if you do not have a Dance-Only Pass, it is not possible to pre-register for individual dances.

We expect there to be extremely limited space at the evening dances, so arrive early to avoid disappointment!  On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, at-the-door tickets go on sale at 8:00.  On Sunday evening, at-the-door tickets go on sale at 8:30.

Important Registration Information

To compete in any Match you must be registered and have also paid for an Event Pass.

In Couple and Team Match Registrations, only ONE dancer needs to register and pay for that Match. Each dancer in said Couple or Team must have their own Event Pass.

Lindy Bout XI Event Passes, Dance-Only Passes, and Match Registrations are not refundable.

You can transfer your Event Pass to someone else for Lindy Bout XI. Also, Event Passes can be credited to the next year (if you buy a pass and decide not to attend Lindy Bout XI, you can transfer your pass to next year and attend Lindy Bout XII).

You can transfer your Dance-Only Pass to someone else for Lindy Bout XI, but Dance-Only Passes cannot be transferred to Lindy Bout XII.

Match Registrations are transferable for Lindy Bout XI (i.e. someone else can compete in your place this year), but if the Match Registration is unused for Lindy Bout XI, you forfeit the fees.

All requests for Event Pass and Dance-Only Pass transfers must be received by Monday, April 17, 2017.
