We know Toronto lindy hoppers are a talented bunch. We’ve seen you shake a tail feather and strut your stuff on dance floors throughout the city and beyond all year long. We also know there’s more to this amazing community than just lindy hop, so let’s prove it with our best Cabaret ever!

TLH is proud to invite all members of the Toronto Lindy Hop community to join us for an evening of righteous revelry! Show off that special talent by submitting your act to the 2014 TLH Cabaret.

We are all dancers and we all know we can dance so the Cabaret is the 1 time of the year we (the Toronto community) can show everyone else our “OTHER TALENTS” beyond the world of Lindy Hop.

We are looking for 2-5 minute acts like, but certainly not limited to:

Short Skits
Improv Performances
Guitar Playing
Hula Dancing
Magic Tricks
Comedy Routines
Belly Dancing
Dramatic Readings

Deadline for Act Submission: Friday, October 17, 2014

Submitted acts are subject to approval. Confirmed performers will be notified following the deadline for act submission (October 17).

NOTE: Green room space at the Tranzac is limited so please keep the number of performers in your act under 10. The stage is approximately 20’x15′ with a bit extra for wing space.

Show tickets and details for the post-show dance will be announced shortly.

Let’s show this city what Toronto Lindy Hoppers can do!

Next up…“Homegrown”-Nov 22nd to Nov 23rd

What is Homegrown:

It’s a weekend workshop (with a dance) showcasing our local homegrown swing dancing talent. Local Teachers and other local talent will be giving workshops all weekend in various subjects. This is a PERFECT way to try out new teachers, new styles and just support the wonderful talent we have right here in Toronto.


Homegrown was an event that Toronto Lindy Hop used to put on many years ago along with the Cabaret and was always a popular event. We look forward to bringing it back this year.

See you at the Cabaret and Homegrown!
