Herräng Resources

Well I'm officially feeling nostalgic about summertime craziness in a small town in Sweden. Registration for 2014 ain't that far away so in the first of a few posts I may or may not write about Herräng I've put together this (incomplete) list of resources about the centre of the centre of the Lindy Hop Universe.

  1. hello! This list is awesome, thankyou. Thought I would add, this is a video that we made as an entry for the film festival - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCA_73K3OO0
    in retrospect, it doesn't really make any sense, but neither did most of Herrang
