Requirements & Rider


The Lindy Hop All Stars (LHAS) are delighted to be performing for you! In order to ensure the integrity of our performance and the safety of our dancers, please be advised that we request the following:

Dance surface

The Dance floor where we are performing is of great importance to us. For our optimal show we recommend hard wood dance flooring. If the dance surface is not hard wood, please inform us the surface so that we can prepare ourselves and make any adjustments necessary in our choreography in advance.

The dance surface should be no smaller than the dimensions specified here, which will depend on the number of dancers in the performance and type of dances demonstrated.
Recommended minimum floor dimensions:
2 couples: 12’ X 16’
3 couples: 14’ X 24’
4 couples: 16’ X 30’

*Optimal – Due to the nature our dances, flooring is of great importance for us to showcase our footwork at it’s best. Some of our routines also include acrobatic lifts, tosses and other fancy tricks many of which require the optimal flooring situation.

Dressing/changing area

Client must provide a dressing/changing area for LHAS. The dressing area ideally should include table, chairs, mirrors, functioning electrical outlets, lighting, hanging rack for costumes, private bathroom or sink area. If any of these items are not available, please inform us in advance so we can prepare ourselves. If we are presenting Showcase numbers, the changing area should be near the dance floor for ease and efficiency of costume changes. However, if this is not possible, please inform LHAS of distance between dressing area and the “stage” so we can prepare ourselves.


Client should provide drinking water for LHAS for any length event.
Suggested Guidelines: waters either pitchers or bottles, in dressing area, before or upon arrival of dancers.
If our performance terms require our presence at your event for a period beyond 3 hrs, we will request to have food available to us especially if we are traveling a great distance for your event. If you will be providing eats, we request options like whole fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes and whole grains as they are always appreciated by our health conscious dancers.

Sound and Floor Check

If we are presenting showcase numbers, LHAS requests a window of time (ideally 1 – 2 hours prior to our performance) to run through our numbers on the dance floor. We need this time to do sound check and to assess the quality of the dance floor in order to make any necessary last-minute adjustments


If you are planning on having our performance videotaped or photographed, we are generally thrilled about that. We love having our numbers captured. However, please keep in mind that any public broadcasting or distribution of our performance must be approved by us. We reserve all rights to our performances and still images. We indeed would love copies of any winning photos or video clips so please we hope you’ll be willing to share these with us!


Thank you, and enjoy the show!!!
