XmaSwing 2021

NEWS - update to Covid-regulations (October 12th)

There has been an update for the Covid-regulations in Bavaria as of October 12th. For XmaSwing, this update means that whereas the workshops are still considered sport and the vaccinated-recovered-tested (German "3G" regulation) applies, the evening dances are considered a club event and therefore the vaccinated-recovered-PCRtested (German "3G-Plus") regulation applies. This regulation is by the authorities of the Free State of Bavaria and is in effect immediately after October 12th.

  • This means, that for participants at the evening dance who are neither Covid-vaccinated and nor Covid-recovered, PCR tests are mandatory for the evening dances. No other tests allowed. For participants who are fully Covid-vaccinated or Covid-recovered, nothing changes (you still need to bring your certificates/official documentation, but there are no more mask requirements or distance requirements at the evening dances and alcohol may be served). For details, please see our covid-regulations info page.

  • Those who do not wish to attend the evening dance due to this change, can return their tickets free of charge and will receive a refund (conditions under which those tickets were booked did change).

  • If workshop tickets are returned on or after October 23rd, we will also give you a refund, but charge a handling fee of 20 Euros since the conditions under which those tickets were booked did not change.

To return your ticket(s), please write to info@hepcatclub.com with subject line "XmaSwing return tickets", your name(s) and which ticket(s) you would like to return.
