Terms and Conditions
Sugarville 2023 is an event organized by Sugarspin Lindy Hop Groningen (Sugarspin).
By registering, booking your ticket and attending, you consent to the following Terms and Conditions of Sugarville:
You must be at least 18 years old to enroll in this event. If you are younger than 18, please have your legal guardian contact us.
All participants must fill out the registration form individually.
Everyone who enrolls will be placed on a waiting list. If we have a spot for you we will send you a confirmation email.
Payment must be made within 7 days after receiving your confirmation email. If you do not pay within 7 days we might give your spot to the next person on the waiting list. In case you are signing up with a partner, we can match you to a different partner if your partner does not pay within 7 days.
Your ticket will be secured once payment has been received.
We will take people off the waiting list on a “first come, first serve” basis, but we will prioritize class balance between leaders and followers in doing so. People who “Swing both ways” can be assigned either role in class during the workshops.
We offer no refunds in case of cancellation by a participant, regardless of the reason.
You can, however, transfer your pass to someone else with the same role and level. If you wish to do so, please contact the organization of Sugarville.
If we have to cancel the event before it starts due to unforeseen circumstances (force majeure) you will receive a partial refund, depending on the costs that have already been incurred. Sugarspin will not make a profit on the event in case the event is canceled.
We want Sugarville to be a safe environment for everyone. We therefore do not tolerate any form of harassment, be it based on race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age, disability, physical appearance and body size, dancing skills or preferred roles. If you see or experience any form of unsafe behavior, please reach out to any of the organizers. We promise to treat any reports made, from dancers in our home scenes or elsewhere, with sensitivity and to keep all details as confidential as possible.
The organization reserves the right to expel anyone who acts inappropriately from the event, without eligibility for a refund.
Dancing is a physical activity in a small environment and as such, everyone is responsible for their own physical safety and that of others nearby. Practice safe floor-craft, apologize if you accidentally bump into or hurt another person, do not offer unsolicited advice or instruction,
No aerials are allowed on the social floor, except in jam circles.
The organizers can not be held liable for any damage or loss of personal goods during the event.
The organizers can not be held liable for any physical injuries incurred during the event.
Schedule and class levels
The organizers reserve the right to make reasonable changes to the schedule before and throughout the event.
If the workshop teachers conclude that you belong in a different level, we reserve the right to change your level.
We may organize auditions for some class levels if we need to make changes to group sizes.
In the case that not all of the levels are filled, we may have to reorganize the groups – but we will always inform you of any changes and options in advance.

Any recordings of workshop content require approval of the teacher(s). Duplication or distribution of the content of workshops is only allowed with the permission of the teacher(s).
