* On behalf of the Herrang scholarships committee , JUYL is proud to present you the information on the application and submission of the scholarship.

Following the kickball changing, twist-twisting, swinging success of the inaugural 2011 scholarships, the 2012 Herrang Scholarships are now open for application! The scholarships committee is gratified that the 2011 winners were true to their word and gave back to the Lindy community in so many ways, including free lessons, sharing sessions, and a continued commitment to growing the scene in Singapore.

Sharing Session 1 October 2011

We are looking for more individuals who are similarly passionate about the dance, motivated to do their part for the community, and have the initiative to come forward and apply for the scholarships.


1. To recognise and reward individuals who have contributed to the Singapore Lindy Hop scene in exceptional ways.

2. To raise the artistic standards and spirit of Lindy Hop through exposure of outstanding Singapore-based Lindy Hoppers at Lindy Hop mecca Herrang.

Note: Singapore-based Lindy Hopper does not need to be a Singaporean by nationality but residing in and contributing to the Lindy scene in Singapore.


S$2,000 per award, and one to three individuals awarded per year. If none of the applicants is found to be deserving by the judging committee, no award will be made that year.

Each award is valid for the year of award only. The scholarship is not transferrable and cannot be used for other purposes or other dance camps. Disbursement of funds will be upon proof of registration at Herrang.

Judging criteria:

1. Artistic standard (eg dance well and teach others).

2. Spirit of Lindy Hop (eg organise events / write blog posts / rally people for Lindy events / active participation / evangelise Lindy to others / encourage newbies to dance / advocate community values).

3. Contribution after Herrang (eg conduct workshops to share lessons learnt, initiate projects that boost the Lindy scene).
