Lindy Bout XV
(private development site)


Location & Lodging

Lindy Bout is held in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We’ve got mountains, ocean, great dancing, and a beautiful venue!

Lindy Bout takes place in the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Venue

Lindy Bout XV will be held on Granville Island, at Performance Works, 1218 Cartwright Street.

Originally a machine shop dating back to the 1920’s, Performance Works opened on Granville Island in 1992 with a mandate to provide the arts community with a permanent performance venue. Lindy Bout is thrilled to have found a home in the arts and culture hub of Granville Island.

Housing

The Granville Island Hotel is located next-door to Performance Works and is hands-down the most convenient place to stay during Lindy Bout weekend.

Thanks to our sponsor Granville Island Hotel, we have some rooms set aside at a special rate, some with double beds and a few with a king bed. Only available until March 27th, call or email Kim at 236-521-1772 or kim@gihotel.net and mention Lindy Bout to get the special rate. The rate is $249 a night if all of the dates fall in April, and $299 if the dates extend into May.

You can also opt to stay with a local dancer (or offer to house out-of-town dancers).  You can sign-up for housing when you register for Lindy Bout XV. Housing sign-up will close on March 26.

While we will do our best to find housing for everyone, we cannot guarantee housing for all out-of-town dancers. Housing requests will be honoured on a first-come-first-served basis. We will be contacting hosts and guests with more information in early April. Contact housing@vernacularjazzdancesociety.ca with your housing-related questions.
