We meet at Østerport station and take a walk in the surrounding area.

The tour will take its path to different statues, telling the humbling story of the many war defeats in Danish history. As to not get too depressed, there will be a beer tasting at each statue stop. We’ll end the tour at the Little Mermaid at Langelinje. Use the tour as an introduction to Østerbro as one of the Copenagen districts, as a historical tour about Danish war history, or simply as a social hangout with the other participants.

(If it’s raining, we’ll go straight to a pub nearby instead.)

Joining for free

You don’t need to buy the ticket to be able to join thee tour. You can also just show up at the meeting point, or join the tour later on, and  buy your drinks directly beforehand and bring by yourself (or just hang out with the other tour participants).

Ahh. Midway through the Exchange, let’s reboot the body and feet, and join us for a day at the races spa.
When moving venue to Østerbro, we were tempted to start our own Copenhagen spa tradition.
And hence: Midway Spa Day was born.

In Øbro-Hallen, there’s hot baths, finnish spa, and a foot therapy room!
After the spa, there will be time to go home for a change of clothes, or to go out for a dinner somewhere close, before the Friday party madness start with no less than 4 (!!) livebands!

Bring your own bathing clothes and towel.

(The bath is open during the whole exchange. Normal tickets cost 120 kr.,  Read more on their website)

We like pie, we like cake! 

Once again, we will have a Cake Walk though Copenhagen, but it will not be a dance, it will be all about the cakes of Denmark, and cakes to be found in Copenhagen.

You can join the Cake walk with or without a ticket. The ticket gives access to the happy ending, where we eat some of the cakes we have hear about. If you don’t buy a ticket, you can go to one of the places on the tour, and satisfy yourself with the cake of your choice.

We will visit four cake shops and have a happy ending for everyone with a ticket. We will go to a place and eat cake. The place depends on the weather.

Cake Walk is a planned tour, so you can join and re-join the tour as you please.

 Teachers workshop with Pieter Aart

Place: Østerbrohuset, 1st floor (party venue)

Price: 125 kr (app. 18 euro)

Signup: Here

Who can join: CPH:LX participants only

There is space for 20 people in the workshop.
This year, CPH:LX invites swing dance teachers with different background and experience to join a workshop focusing on clearer communication in class.


About Pieter Aart

As a dancer, communication trainer and business consultant by profession, Pieter Aart enjoys digging into the details of dance technique and teaching Lindy Hop. Pieter Aart has been working on the gritty details of teaching Lindy Hop in collaboration with the SwingStep team from Germany and supported many European dance schools with training on communication and class/curriculum development.

Workshop description

About the workshop, Pieter Aart says:
I believe that as dance teacher we want to deliver classes that are easy to take while still developing as much skill and understandig as we can. We need to understand how our students’ needs translate to a way of communicating that is easy for them to listen to and focus on. During this taster we will work on our clarity of language every time we instruct our students or set them to work. After this taster you can approach your in-class communication in a way that makes it easy for your students to focus on their practice without being confronted with the process of your class.
